Story Summary

When Joe finds a cell-phone in the trash he is surprised to hear two people in conversation. He is even more surprised when they are talking about events that haven't happened yet as though the events were past news. His last overheard conversation about a boy who, distracted by his cell phone, was struck by a truck. Then Joe looked up just in time to see the truck careening toward him.
