Someone in my family is constantly losing their cell phone. In the couch, in the car, at someones house, at church, or somewhere in their bedroom.
Not just the kids, but my husband, too! So add losing his cell phone at work to the list above!
Not only do they lose their phones, but they make sure to turn them off before losing them! It’s really amazing how these phones, that are on all the time, magically get turned off right before losing them.
It takes talent to lose your cell right after turning it off.
And that is why I buy my family cheap prepaid phones. I can’t even imagine them losing, or destroying a $500 phone. I would have a major meltdown! For the record, I have always used prepaid phones as well.
I was prompted to write about this because my husband called me to look for his cell phone. When he left the house it was in his pocket. When he got to work it was gone. So I looked all over the house, yard, and driveway. He called and asked me to try calling it to see if it fell out of his pocket in the shop. So I called it, only to find out he had turned it off! lol
He called back a few minutes later saying he finally found it. Under the car. It fell out of his pocket while getting out of the car. The screen is all scratched up, but thankfully he didn’t run it over, so it still works.
I’ve talked about family jokes before. My husband and his cell phones is another family joke. He does something to his phone to make it unusable. So he takes mine. I do without for a few weeks or a couple of months, then I buy a new phone. Shortly after I buy a new phone, he does something to his phone to make it unusable. Then he takes mine. This cycle has repeated itself ever since he got a cell phone several years ago.
I just bought a new smart phone 3 weeks ago. A smart phone with a contract, not prepaid. When I bought it, the kids were all asking how long I thought it would be before Dad does something to his phone and takes this one? lol Apparently the answer to that question is three weeks. lol But I’m not giving this phone up!
Ok, now that you know my family’s track record with cell phones, someone please tell me I’m not alone!
