Someone says “I’ll call you back in five to ten minutes, okay?”
You say okay and set down the phone, doing nothing because you’re waiting for them to call back.
You sit there for five minutes.
You sit there for ten minutes.
You sit there for twenty minutes.
You sit there for thirty minutes.
Finally, wondering if something bad has happened and bored from sitting on the step staring at your phone, you call them. They sound surprised and you can hear people conversing in the background. They tell you “Oh yeah. I’m glad you called. Sorry, I totally forgot about you.”
Then, when you don’t know what to say and sound sad, they get mad at you.
Multiply by ten when it’s your girlfriend and she’s far away and should be missing you as much as you miss her.
