No Charge

Sometime around 9 this morning Tracey and I realized something very strange was going on - we hadn't received a single phone call since we'd woken up.

This simply doesn't happen.

We soon discovered the reason for this lack of communication from our parents, our older kids, our siblings, our friends and our foreign call center stalkers - the cordless was out of charge. 

I have a real issue with ignoring the phone when it's ringing. I usually announce I'm going to ignore it, but before it can switch over to the message bank I've snatched it out of the cradle - I just can't do it. So I've got to say, when I discovered the phone was flat I mentally slapped my forehead and thought, 'Brilliant! Why didn't I think of that!' 

And the reason it was out of charge?

The previous evening Miss2 had obviously decided her phone needed charging more than ours.

Bless her little cotton socks.

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
