A Bird On Your Phone Is Worth Two In The Bush

| USA | Siblings

(I have just moved in with my dad, my brother, and my dad’s new wife, whom I don’t know very well. We’re sitting down having breakfast when I hear a bird whistle very clearly. Our house is near some woods so I think it’s a wild bird.)

Me: “Huh, is that a bird? Birds are very common here.”

(No one says anything, just continue eating and looking through their phones. A few minutes pass and I hear it again.)

Me: “Wonder what kind of bird was that. I’m curious.”

Brother: *finally looks at me like I’m stupid* “That was [Dad’s Wife]’s phone! It has a new message!”

Me: “Oh! Well it sounded like a bird call.”

(I felt stupid.)
