Stories of people caught in the middle. A young man gets a job transcribing and reading TTY calls for deaf people and their hearing friends and relatives. Quite often he found himself being the intermediary for all sorts of conversations that people like to think of as private: family arguments, break-ups, the occasional conversation about how much "green stuff" and "white stuff" someone wanted to buy or sell. Plus, other stories about being the man in the middle.
