Sometimes you listen to quite disturbing telephone conversations

We are strangers on a bus sitting opposite each other.

Her phone is ringing.

She looks at the display and answers the call with “Hi Danny!“, listens and then says: “Danny, I have to tell you I brought your father into the nursery home.

Short interruption.

Then: “Yesterday.”

Short interruption.

Then she says: “He said If you think it’s best it will be the best.A tear was running down his cheek, but would could I do? He looked so bad. The place was desolate.”

She listens. “Danny, I am sure he would appreciate that very much.”

I get off the train.
