Lately it has been Amy Vs. the Smart Phone. The phone is winning. I have lost count by how much. Don’t get me wrong! I love the phone. It does all these great tricks. But sometimes I don’t want it doing all the tricks that it does! And I don’t know how to make it stop doing them.
The other day I kept thinking I heard the doorbell ringing. I went to the door multiple times. It was not the doorbell. It was the smart (alack) phone. It was taunting me to see how many times it could make me go to the door. Finally I figured it out. I still haven’t figured out which “app” was making the noise, but I learned to ignore it. So if you come to my house, I guess you need to knock because my phone has tricked me one too many times.
I was going to try Twitter. Ha! That was a joke. The little twittering dude was a twit and made me so mad! I had to just unfollow anyone because it was like every 2 seconds that thing was chirping away. I don’t like birds anyway so that was like a panic attack waiting to happen. Ugh!
Now one thing I have learned to do with it is listen to Pandora! Yeah! So the other day I had it playing some decent music when I was stuck somewhere I didn’t want to be. That was pretty cool. Yeah, I could have an iPod, but this is easier.
One day I will figure out how to add all my own contacts. But at least I figured out how to D-E-L-E-T-E some. The smart phone is a little too smart and decided to add my ex to my contacts. I nearly died when I saw his face in my phone. I was freaking out as I tried to delete him without accidentally texting him or possibly calling him. As all of this was going on, I was imagining a sit-com episode. It was the perfect sit-com episode, minus the cameras. Thankfully I got him deleted without any accidental calls or texts. I was very happy about that.
Since the phone has been winning so much I may go ahead and try to read the manual. I’m tired of getting my butt whipped by an electronic device that is no larger than my driver’s license.
