I read somewhere that a man finishes off a telephone conversation in an average of 3 minutes, while a woman takes an average of 18 minutes to finish off a telephone conversation. It may be true if both the parties involved are of the same gender.
A few days ago my wife had called up her sister who lives in Pune. I decided to time out their conversation. And the conversation lasted for exactly 20 minutes and 15 seconds. A record for her. I told her about 3 v/s 18 minutes average conversation. She just laughed it off. Suddenly she remembered that she had forgotten to tell some very important thing to her sister and rushed again to the phone to call up her sister. Needless to say that her sister's phone was engaged as she also had forgotten something important to say to my wife and was calling her at the same time. I wonder what two woman, when they they got hold of each other on phone, talk about. God only knows. Or maybe HE also does not know.
Here is a little joke to illustrate the point that women just love to talk on phone:
A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter.
``What are you doing?'' she asked.
``Hunting flies,'' he responded.
``Oh. Kill any yet?'' she asked.
``Yes, 3 males and 2 females so far,'' he replied.
Intrigues, she asked, ``But how can you tell them apart?''
``Well,'' he responded ``3 were on a beer can, and 2 were on the phone.''
