Anyone who knows me, knows me and my cell phone(s) do not get along, at all. For example, a little over 2 months ago I dropped my phone into a mug of scalding hot coffee. (Don't ask how, it just happend, ok?) After some consultation with the "Wireless Specialist" we determined that the phone would work after it "dried out." Well, it did, kinda. There were "provisions" to using this phone. It didn't matter if I was talking on it, creating a text message or scheduling an appointment, the phone would cut out and turn off at any moment and then turn back on, by itself. It was f'd up, had to get a new one.
Anyway onto Part III, (I'm not mentioning Part I...lol) New phone, same Mandalay. On my way home from the golf course this evening, I decided to stop and grab a bite to eat at one of my favorite Italian restaurants. I've been going to this place for years, great food, great people and outstanding service. I always sit at the bar (since I'm always alone) so I got a drink, ordered my food and started talking to the bartender. After about 20 min. my food came. Huge plate of Veal Parm. and Pasta. As I'm eating my phone starts "buzzing" in my pocket, you know, keep it on vibrate in public areas. Put the fork down, reach in the pocket, grab the phone, say "hello" and the next thing you know, some idiot is walking behind my bar stool, hits the back of my chair, my arm goes forward, the phone flies out of my hands RIGHT INTO MY PASTA!!
HAHA... that was funny... I can just see you, Mand, when the guy hits you from behind at the bar... LOL
BTW... from what I read here, I kinda noticed that men are really clumsier with their cell phones than women... hmmmmmm... hehehe
Like Fun, I've had a cell for a really long time, I had the big heavy one too... The only mishap I had with my phone is that I was running across the street to a meeting and my high heel caught in a crack in the asphalt and I went flying in the air, fell on the pavement, and my cell just flew out of my purse. I didn't even notice I had lost it until I needed it again. Needless to say that was very embarrassing... bloody knees, missing one shoe (still stuck in the crack), nylons totally destroyed... yep, really embarrassing...
Poor Mandy :( My heart goes out to you...me and my $300 bills dont like that :( I drop mine and break the carrier all the time...Then I lose the damn thing all the time in the bottom of my purse, btw the time I get the call they hang up....I forget it all the time at home...and fell in the pool w/it on the 4th :(
This is so fricking funny...All I can do is laugh...I can just see you walking into the phone store again. Maybe you need insurance on your phone? I carry mine in my purse. You could try that? LMAO..you are hilarious.
The phone sunk to the bottom of the plate like the Titanic hitting the ocean floor. It is so messed up. I turned around to look at the guy, he's drunk, laughing his a*ss off and didn't even say he was sorry. I stood up, asked him to "please take a look in my food and tell me what he sees." He says "Did I do that?" Ummm..."YEAH!" Needless to say, I took the rest of the food home, with my "cell phone parm."
Now I have to take the time, again, to go see my local "Wireless Specialist" to get another F'n phone. They love me at this place!! "Oh, here comes Mandalay! Yeah!!" Actually, they may refuse to give me another one, do you blame them? I don't.
This is becoming more of a chore to have a cell phone than a necessity. So my question to all of you is, are there any convenience items that you have that you wish you didn't? Do we take these items for granted and say to ourselves, "Oh yeah, I've got to have it or I will just die!!" Me, I'm about to tee up my cell phone and use it as a golf ball.
