So this really happened.
I was going to lunch with some friends from work. Our driver picked us up mid-call with her mother and away we went. After a few minutes the call, which was connected to the car audio via bluetooth, ended–and it was then that one of the passengers realized it wasn’t an audiobook and said pretty much what Skip said in this comic.
I didn’t know if the gag would work well in a comic, but it was funny enough in real life to at least make the attempt.
