International Man of Mystery

I was in the waiting room at the cancer center on Wednesday, and a fellow patient, a suit-wearing man, was talking very loudly into his cell phone. In the first conversation, he was upset with someone at his workplace for sending out a letter that was going to affect someone named Rex.

"We're going to lose Rex now," he said, "because I know Rex, and Rex is a man of honor, and now Rex is going to believe that we're not men of honor. Fortunately, (some other guy) hasn't heard about this yet, because he's in Jakarta."

He hung up and immediately called someone else: "John? This is Tom. Have you been able to reach the embassy?"

Wow. Men of honor? Jakarta? Embassy? Rex??!? I am dying to know what happened.

I'm betting there was no one on the other end of the phone. He's broke, has 2 warrants out for his arrest for unpaid traffic fines and child support, and just wanted to sound impressive in hopes of picking up chicks. I could be wrong. I'm just sayin'. :o)

Are you sure you weren't in the psych clinic by accident?
