Door bell rings

Door bell rings ... Door bell rings…. After long time someone opened the door. Why don’t you attend the phone call? How can I, can’t stretch my fingers properly. Why? What happened? Burnt my fingers… What nonsense… only excuses. No, no really fingers got burnt Rubbish …. Believe me, all fingers affected How come? Because of sanitizer Again lies; how sanitizer burns your fingers No, sanitizer didn’t burn Hear me…. If you want to give excuses think properly. You don’t understand, my condition How can I, if you don’t say I am suffering from pain It’s OK, but tell now, how all fingers burnt? Returning home from office; rinsed my fingers with sanitizer That’s normal, now everybody does; Yes, but mistake was thereafter I lit a cigarette I know you’re a chain smoker; But the lighter flame touched my fingers OMG! All fingers burnt, can’t stretch Yes, must be painful; Yes, but understood why the warning written That warning on pack, smoking is injurious to health Right for me it was my fingers Good part is you won’t smoke for a couple of days Let’s see; but if you can help What help? To lit a cigarette for me and hold till I smoke Impossible…. Leaving now…. Door slammed Note:: With due respect to all concerned written just for fun with no intention to hurt sentiments of anyone.
