Just doing our part to keep our relationship with Sprint fresh and new.
As in…we’ve renewed our vows that we took way back in 2000. That means, two more years of our already long-term relationship.
We got the girls new phones for their birthday and The Grunter and PhilBillPaul didn’t want to be left out.
I admit that their new Samsung Rant phones seem pretty slick. What with the sliding keyboard – now standard on many phones. I’m pretty partial to Wizzy’s. I think she picked the best color.
I figured the advantages of all of them having the same phones were numerous. They can share chargers and swap cases. More importantly, they can tutor Dad because Cellular Phil (that’s what I call him when he shouts into his phone “Can you hear me now”) needs tutoring. There are just too many features on these newfangled gadgets for him to figure it all out.
I have threatened to get him one of those Jitterbug phones or something similar. He often finds himself in a quandary because he can’t read the text messages because he can’t find his glasses.
I think it is an appropriate solution to his dwindling eyesight but coupled with his hearing loss, he just gets all grouchy and takes it personally declaring
“I don’t need a dog yet.”
“Yet” is the operative word here.
Much like the ipod, I had a smart phone with a keyboard way before the kids all wanted one. “So geeky, mom” is a comment I recall hearing.
Now it seems you are a total geek if you don’t have a phone with a keyboard.
So…are you a texting mom or are you still a holdout and refuse to communicate in teen speak?
No judgment – remember I’m still holding out on the Facebook *fad* that might pass.
