One late afternoon in the office, the phone rang. I picked it up, "Good afternoon."
There was no answer. However, I can hear some noise on the background telling me that the line was still open. After several seconds, I said, "Hello... I know you're there! I can hear you!"
"Uh, hello, mamalihug kong Mark," the voice on the other end of the line finally demanded.
"Ah ah, kadali lang Sir," I stuttered as I replied. It was our company president.
