The Wrong Number
A wife was very talkative (разговорчивая) and she kept talking with people on the phone hour after hour (часами) when she was alone (одна) at home.At the end of every month they always got a huge (огромный) telephone bill (счет) and the husband was so worried on this.
One day they were dining (ужинали) at the table and the phone rang (зазвенел).
The lady’s reaction was immediate (немедленная), she ran to the phone and started chatting (болтать).
After about half an hour (полчаса) she hanged up (повесила трубку) and came back to the table.
The husband was happy as it was a good sign since (потому что) she normally spoke for at least for 2-hours. So he happily inquired (спросил) was she busy to hang up so early???
“No, it was a wrong number (ошиблись номером)”, replied the lady.
