Man Tired of Friend's "Kirk to Enterprise" Cell Phone Gag

Gilead: Not amused

(Toledo, OH) Marc Gilead says that he has long been a fan of the original Star Trek series, but there are limits to his willingness to continue to hear his friend Jason Wright drop references to the show in conversation.

In particular, said Gilead, Wright's insistence on using the catch phrase "Kirk to Enterprise" whenever he answers his flip phone is beginning to strain their friendship.

"Sure, the first couple of times Jason did it was kind of funny," Gilead told Toledo Tales reporters. "But this has been going on for, like, six months now."

The "kicker," according to Gilead, happened when he was trying to call Wright for a ride to work when his transmission blew last week.

"So he picks up and answers with his Kirk bit," he said, clearly irritated at the memory. "And he won't continue the conversation until I talk like [Enterprise chief engineer] Scotty - he just keeps going: 'Scotty, do you read me? Scotty, do you read me?' until I break down and tell him: 'I'm a givin' her all she's got Cap'n. If I give her anymore she's gonna bloooow.' That's just wrong - I was ten minutes late for work because of him."

Gilead: "It's a fucking phone, dude, and you are not Kirk"

Wright's Star Trek obsession is beginning to take over all phases of his friend's life, said Gilead.

"We were in Speedway the other day, and he asked the chick behind the counter for $10 worth of 'Dilithium Crystals' on Pump 3," he said, shaking his head. "The dude is not well."

Does he do the whistle in the phone when he calls, thats really annoying.
 
With everything going on in the world today, does this really matter. Your friend is enjoying life. You should too. As for being late to work...you had no transmission, you weren't going to make it at all, so you really need to thank him for taking you.
 
Anon,

It's called sarcasm.

Look it up. . .
