unrequited-unrequired 3

Brrr brrr brrr; Hello caller this is the wabc radio phone in; what would you like to talk about? I'd like to discuss my reaction and thoughts on another persons statements on yesterdays slot; with your host Tom Morrow, can I ask on what subject this person was speaking about Sir? Yes it was personality's or identity's that sort of thing, His name was Linny I believe, may I take your name caller? Yes its Will Chauvanis'te.. Gee that's an unusual one..' May I address you as Will.? Well I guess so.. O K Will now just a minute, & I'll check with Tom,--------- Hello hello; this is Tom Morrow, am I talking with Will Cauvanis'te.? That's correct Sir, I gather you want to discuss your reaction to another callers situation.? Yes indeed I do.. Well of you go Sir may I remind you are live on the air, and I will not tolerate any profanity.' Yes I'm clear on that sir.. Look Will feel free to call me Tom.'  OK Tom; I would like to say that with the greatest respect to yourself & all your listeners I consider that guy to be either a lot short of normal intelligence; a hypocondriac or sponger, or maybe even all three in one person.' Well thats a sweeping statement Will; considering you have not even met the guy.' Look I don't feel I have to or even want to meet such a person that I believe, is really just an attention seeking nutcase who you should not have given airtime to.' Its perfectly OK for you to have your views Will, it does not mean they have any bearing on his particular situation however.' Well Tom I would like to remind you haw soon he started feeling better when you mentioned  some cash and a low rise home.' Well if the guy is feeling down Will, and there is a legitimate sense of disenfranchisment with the wider world, which you may or may not represent I think it may well have lifted his spirit to feel wanted.' I can't see anything wrong with that.' Yet you it seems can; and just what do you think makes you qualified Will to have such a.. May I say judgemental attitude.? I believe I am perfectley within my rights to speak out on what I see as 'hogwash' Tom; put out on a radio station that should be addressing things of greater interest to your wider audience..'and further more I wonder how you can have such a sympathetic view on this Linny charachter who.. You.. Have not even met face to face Tom.'
Now you just look here Will..' I have been conducting phone ins for 10 plus years, I should think I have a better idea of the genuineness of a caller than you, now my time is getting short, however I would like to explore your predjudices on another phone in, on a slot which I can have a registered psyciatrist to refer to, I could also see if Linnie is willing to take part, in which event I believe we can get to the root of your.. Intolerant attitude and see if you are willing to give Linny a little consideration in his plight, who I think just needs
a break here.. Now Will I'm handing you back to Sandy who will take your Details, and let you know when we will all be able to be on the air together is that suitable to you Will.? Yes.. O K then till the next occasion Will, I wish I could say it was a pleasure talking with you this time..' Next caller..'

Getting into the psyche :) I like these kinds of conversations. When the other person doesn't know what to think or how to take what you just said :) ON to # 4.

You haven't given us an ending, how mean of you. I haven't listened to a lot of talk back radio, you certainly make it sound interesting.

Thanks for the input Pashang, as I wrote above there is just]so much to go with here, and I am working out how to do it with I think a maximum of 5 people including the radio host, as this is going to touch on a lot of truth thoughts experience and also false conceptions.'
