Like my routine every day at 1500 every day: to mix up an iced black coffee to get me through the next 5 hours of my day.......I makes me a little "wired"
Or when I once leaned against an electric fence to pose for a picture once...not aware it was electric at the time! I felt very "wired"
Did our coffee bean grinder quit functioning??...........
Did a sudden monsoon hit, causing a loss in electricity?....
My blackberry quit working.
And amazingly, life still went on. I, however, waited in a pause of suspese when this occurred...........
I thought, "is this it? Is this the early apocolypse?!?!? IS THIS THE RAPTURE?! It's not even 2012 yet! I knew that fundamentalist nutcase was wrong!"
I immediately reached for my phone, to text my husband, my parents, my siblings to tell them my goodbyes.
But I couldn't! I couldn't text anyone!
What's wrong with this picture? Yes. I am extremely dependent on my phone. I don't know addresses. I completely depend on my phone for directions to get anywhere. I don't even look up directions prior to leaving the house anymore. I also don't call people. I text. Would I text my husband to tell him the world is ending? It's possible. ;)
(I'm only joking....before you start thinking I truly am the most insensitive, stone-woman alive)
But. yes. My phone quit working. I couldn't call my husband to tell him that I'd have to go purchase a new phone today. I was annoyed. He's also out of town for the week.
I went to the Verizon store to purchase a new device. They asked for my husbands social security number. I did not know it. They wouldn't let me do anything. They said "Well, that's our policy, ma'am"
I responded, "I have a social security #, and I'm on the account....."
"Sorry ma'ma. That's our policy"
What really annoyed me, is that the customer service rep finally suggested, "Can you call him and ask?"
Feeling irritated, I responded saying "Yes. Let me call him with my phone that doesn't work real quick...."
Needless to say....I used their phone. I got ahold of him. I got a new phone.
The world goes on! I got a Droid Incredible. And let me tell you...it is incredible! I love it! I hope everyone has a fabulous Labor Day Weekend! Celebrate well!! --While I am laboring away this weekend ;)
