A Public Service Announcement — update

My phone isn’t working. The inside screen is all white.

So if you call me, I will happily pick up the phone. However, I cannot call you because like many, I have almost no one’s number memorized. And I am afraid I will type something in wrong and not know it, and wind up bothering a stranger.

I do, however, know the number for 911. So if you are a crazy person thinking about coming to my house and attacking me and thinking you will get away free, think again.

The white screen is a vast improvement over the phone’s first malady, which was constant vibration. On Monday afternoon and evening, if the phone was on, it was vibrating. As if I don’t have enough things in my life to make me slightly batty.

So we’re off to the Verizon phone hospital.

We arrived at said Verizon phone hospital to discover two things:

  • a. Said Verizon phone hospital no longer resides in the same location.
  • b. My phone had been miraculously healed.

So there I was, outside an empty storefront with a phone that was working. Confusion inevitably followed.

    You know, that would have been an appropriate reaction (for someone who is less than my current size and shape), maybe.But for some reason, I just couldn’t get past the confused feeling. What am I doing here? Where is the store? Why did I come here? Why did my phone break for three days and then…WAIT a second…for three days…and then it came back to life…

    Same thing happened to me, only mine didn’t come back to life (so to speak). I had to call Verizon and find out where the store went. (It’s off Tryon, by the way…across from Ham’s). I asked why they hadn’t put a sign or something. I was told they did and the owner of the old building kept taking it down…

    This just happened to my friend… after a few random calls from her when she was trying to call someone else she got a new one… funny!

    glad you are back! 😉 That’s pretty funny! My old phone erased my phone book FOUR times – it was SO frustrating!!! But it was SO strange. It was working totally normal each time. I went to the phone book to call somebody, and the phone did something strange, and then it said phone book empty…WHAT??!!!! That’s never a good thing! : ) Because like you….I know my husband’s number and 911….that’s about it! : )
