I Just - I Can’t - Why Would You Do That!?

Dear Long-time Friend Who is Now Married,

Stop putting me on the phone with your wife without asking me first!  

We are not magically going to form a friendship just because you keep forcing us to talk to each other on the phone. 

I like her fine, but I have nothing to say to her.  Just put the phone on speaker and let me shout hello to her like a normal person!


YOUR Friend, but Not Your Wife’s Friend,
