Overheard at Table 3: Overheard at Work

Here is a note that I jotted down from what I overheard one of my staff on the phone - she's divorced so I think it was to one of her kids:

"I'm at work - I told you to stop calling - I'm training - I can't deal with this right now, don't you get it?  Finally?  Stop calling.  All right.  Bye."

I was struck by how this could have been spoken to a husband, either estranged from or just distanced from.  I was thinking that so many women treat their teens like they do spouses that they live with but are no longer in love with.
