On Sunday I came home to a message from my dad, wondering if we were mad at him as he never hears from us. I called back. No answer. I left a message. I’ve left many other messages already and sent emails. I don’t understand it.
Last night he called again. Are you mad at me? No. Then he explained that he can’t check his voicemail because he doesn’t know how. I log in to his Vonage account — and it’s canceled because (surprise!) he hasn’t paid the bill in three months. The real mystery is that he called me on the Vonage line. So although I can’t change his features or check his messages, the phone line is still working. Now I’d never believe that if I hadn’t seen it myself. He is the master of the weird tech stuff.
All in all it was a better conversation than usual. He did not actually yell at me about anything.
