The Network

Recently I was in a hotel room with a friend who was busy moving his hand all over in a funny manner standing by the window from the time we checked-in.

“What are you doing?” I said.
“Trying to get my phone some damn network.” Impatience was evident in his voice.

It was then that I noticed the phone in his hand. In the next second I saw him throw the phone on the floor with disgust.

“What did the phone do?” I said but by then he had locked himself in the washroom. He came out after fifteen minutes.

"Do you get out of a relationship the moment it loses its charm?" I said looking straight at him. "Or, do you remain patient  to re-connect to the charm?" 

He gaped at me as if I had shown him a loaded gun.

"Maybe it depends on how much you value your relationship. Your phone in this case." I answered myself.

It takes a lifetime to make a relationship and seconds to break it :)
