Overheard on the way out of the Tube station. Commuters everywhere. The lady is walking behind me, she is on the phone.
Her: Hi, it’s me
[the person at the other end starts chit-chatting]
Her: Yes, yes, but listen, I need you to shut up for five minutes and let me talk. You wouldn’t believe what’s happened, I’m on my way to the police station…
And then our ways parted.
