The love letter

In our little town we live in, phone service providers are very limited. In fact for the longest we only had one option which was the Bellsouth phone co.. It was like being shackled to them, with their uncompetitive rates , and once given another choice it was a breath of fresh air. Without a second thought we immediately signed on to a lower bill, with many extras. (including free long distance!) Once we made the switch over, there was no regret and absolutely no want to ever go back. No matter how many times they called begging everyday at 9pm, the answer was indefinably the same. So, long forgotten we went on about our lives, knowing they could never again invade our happy little home with their excessive billing.
First off let me say I am madly in love with my husband of 12 years. Never in my mind have I ever thought he could actually cheat or leave me. Although I love to tease him about it all the time.
(*wink-wink* right sweetie? He hates it!) Besides, I know he would never want to be the victim of a Lorena Bobbit copy cat.
Being a woman I can get a tad bit jealous at just the thought. (alright, alright Jason, I'm telling them..) I mean I can get Extremely jealous at times. Take for instance just the comments here. There's been moments I'd like to tear through the computer and rip out some hair. With that being said, let me tell you what happened.
Going through the mail I came across a letter addressed to Jason (clearly written by a woman!) with no return address. Trust or no trust that warranted me to rip it open in mad woman speed!
Inside was a hallmark looking love card which read;
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I really miss us being together,
How about you?... I'm sure you can imagine the smoke which was coming out of my head, at the wheels turning by this moment. Furious, heart pounding, I continued on through this poem of missing you, until I got to the very bottom where it was signed Bellsouth! So, not only do they try to rape you on charges, but they are potential home wreckers too!
The funny part was after I got over my initial shock, I used it that evening to aggravate Jason. Needless to say he was about as amused as I was. I can say it's made me a little less quick to jump to conclusions. Thank you Bellsouth for your valuable lesson.

  6. Yea, Bellsouth sucks big time. I wonder how many scaulding calls and letters they got from that bright idea. I would have reacted the same way. Any woman that loved her man would.

  9. I'd run with that for years!! "Gee, you're home late. Were you out with that hussy, Bellsouth?" "Bellsouth called today. She hung up when I asked her name."

    (I'll probably have that song stuck in my head all day today. Darn it!)
