This is what my daughter ’79 gave me for Mother’s Day. Lovely isn’t it. It is The Instinct, a cell phone from Sprint. I would like to thank my child for her thoughtful and well meaning gift. She loves me and did not know this phone had its own agenda…. which is to destroy mom.
Now I am usually good with electronics and don’t need a manual for any reason. I even know how to program a dvr and set the clock and everything. Well let me tell you, I have met my match. This thing has frustrated me to the point I want to hurl it through space, how much do you think that would cost, because it might be worth it. I realize I am getting old when I feel inadequate to a small rectangular electronic device that is suppose to simplify my life. I know I would love its ease of texting, if only my fingers would keep out of the way. Okay, I broke down and read the how to book and now I will prevail because after all I am woman hear me whimper roar. Oh look it has GPS… cool beans.
Update: The phone and I have come to an agreement, it will co-operate nicely and in return I won’t buy it a one way ticket on the space shuttle. I am starting to like this thing more and more, especially since it has at last recognized my superiority. You don’t think it’s connected to Skynet do you?
