I didn't say there was a sinister reason, I was expecting James was going to say it was wrong of me not to check my phone for 9 hours and make Veronica panic but he didn't.
I told you why I didn't check my phone. There are several reasons why and you seem intent on trying to prove some sort of point.
1. I didn't think it was possible to hear from her before 7pm.
2. My phone was on silent, so I had no reason to check it when I couldn't hear anything.
With that in mind, please explain why I should have been checking my phone when I thought she literally could not contact me until 7pm?
