What kind of a crazyhead doesn't check their email for two hours?

I locked my keys in the truck today. D'oh! But I was at the library, so, yay! stuff to do.

I called home. My sister and my mom were there, so I left a message on the answering machine. (No, you didn't misread that.) Then I read for a while.

Then I emailed my mom. Then I read for a while. Then I emailed my sister. Then I read for a while.

Then I considered installing TightVNC on the library computer so I could VNC into my laptop and make it start talking, in hopes someone would hear it. But I opted against this. There's no good portable (as in, noninvasive installation like you'd use on a USB memory stick) VNC client for Windows, to my knowledge. So I read for a while.

After about two and a half hours, my mom arrived. So I went home, listened to the two new messages on the answering machine, deleting the second one since it was from me and I was no longer at the library.

This is not the first time I've had trouble getting in touch with people at home. Only my brother and I use IRC regularly, and Miciah's in Germany. Only I use IM regularly. My sister is on PowerPets a fair bit, but that was blocked at the library and I didn't feel like dealing with it. My mom usually checks her email fairly often.

Why can't people be more like me?
