Joe is watching a soccer game on his phone when Paul comes up to talk to him, saying he has a problem he needs to tell someone about. Joe isn’t very interested. Paul always seems to have problems, and Joe is tired of them. So whatever it is this time can’t be very important. As Paul keeps talking, Joe nods his head and says “yeah…uh huh” but he’s not really paying attention. Then he sees Paul’s face: Paul looks like he’s about to cry. Joe realizes that Paul is talking about how his mother is very sick in the hospital. Joe puts his phone on the table and listens to Paul. He thinks about offering Paul some advise, but he knows that not what Paul needs. Suddenly from the cell phone they hear “GOAAAL!” and Joe picks up his phone again.
