My pager


I have a pager,
and I hate it!
Small,
stylish,
but very annoying!
It's unpredictable,
and goes off usually when it shouldn't!
Sleeping,
eating,
or flirting....
it still goes off!
Tired,
frustrated,
or feeling fed up,
it still goes off!
When on call,
post-call,
or on my day off,
it still goes off.
ouff....ouff...
If I try to ignore it, it beeps every 30 seconds,
protesting my behavior.
And I feel bad,
and checks the number, and picks up the phone.
Only then, it stops beeping!
My pager,
I hate you!
When you ring,
or vibrate,
or even silent..
I hate you!
Morning,
or evening,
I hate you!
Awake,
or asleep,
or dead,
I hate you!
(ok...you are ringing again....let me check who's paging!!)

Hashem, your poem reminds me of the time I was flirting with some guy. My family kept ringing my bloody phone. First my Dad, "Wannik ya Hilwee". Then my mum "Your grandmothers here, try to come home". Then my brother "What are you doing, do I hear a guy in the background?" Then my Father, AGAIN, "Ya bayee, your brother told me indic shubb markee. Are you getting married soon?". Ya Allah, pager, phone, it is all the same thing....lol

what about pagers/phones that don't ring when you desperately want them to ring, and don't save you when you urgently want to be saved! yiiiii, bi3asbo....

You forgot to mention 'In Meetings' hashem.I (love) it when it goes off when I'm behind the person who's paging me.My hand itches to slap a cheek or pull some hair but I try to control myself. No I'm not a Doctor. Yes I have a pager at work :S
