When my husband and I moved to Oregon, many things changed. Our cell phone numbers were not among them. But over time we developed a sneaking suspicion that we were missing calls. Local calls. Why?
Portland has a 503 area code; my cell phone has a 203 area code. Similarly, Portland has 971 while my husband has 917.
But. . . can’t people be trusted to read carefully, to pay attention, to not just dial out of habit or suspect a typo?
The silence is deafening.
