I was eating dried mango slices and had my phone headset on, so I decided to call a friend on a whim. She didn't answer, so I left a message and hung up. Then I burped, quietly but audibly (I swallow a lot of air when I eat), and resumed reading. Normally I'll burp silently when other people are around or I'm on the phone, but the dogs don't care how loud I am.
After a while I noticed something was wrong out of the corner of my eye-- my phone hadn't gone back to its normal display like it does about 30 seconds after a call ends. When I looked at it I felt an emotion I haven't felt in a long time: genuine, horrified mortification. The phone was still off-hook, I was still leaving her a message! Shit!! I panicked and hit END about a hundred thousand times, thankfully without making any more noises (rude or otherwise) before the call ended.
I really hope she deletes it when I stop talking.
