cell phone

I got a new cell phone at work today.

I didn't know that my old one wasn't working until last weekend, when some friends came by unexpectedly and said, "We thought you were dead! We KNOW the land-line is always busy while you blog, but we've called your cell phone for THREE DAYS and it's been off the entire time."

"Bullshit," I replied. "It's on right now. See?" I showed them the phone. It was turned on and fully charged. "I always keep it on in case somebody calls."

"Bullshit your ownself. Let's see." One of them dialed my number on his cell phone. My phone didn't ring. "Aha!" he said. "Listen to THIS!" And I heard that familiar message about how the Sprint user was not available now.

I dialed his number on MY phone and received some kind of message about roaming and using a credit card to make a call. I knew then that something was badly wrong.

I took the phone by the Information and Communications Gods today. "My phone has quit working," I told them. "Did I break it?"

"What are you doing with THAT THING?" one of the phone people asked. "We switched you over to Alltel and issued you a new phone two weeks ago!"

"No, you didn't," I said. "You may have switched me, but you never issued me another phone."

Much confusion ensued. They HAD cancelled me with Sprint, but issued MY phone to someone else by mistake. I ended up with a new one, even though I was treated as if the mistake was MY FAULT.

That shows you how much I use a cell phone. I was toting a dead one for two weeks and didn't even know it.

.....even though I was treated as if the mistake was MY FAULT.....

And why does this surprise you ?!

MB, this is the office-dwelling, paper pushing part of my company. Nothing is EVER their fault.

I was not suprised at all.

The worst part is you're still using a dial-up ISP! Join the 21st Century, man! Go cable! You'll never go back to dial-up.

All my life I've been an "Early Adopter". I love tech.
But, fuck cell phones. I'm retired.

That's pretty sad Acidman, but is it as sad as a guy in the tech field with a Computer Science degree that has yet to ever own one either personal or business? That probably means I'm a geek wannabe . . .
