It Finally Happened

I have been limping along for months.  It hurts and I stay about half pissed at it.  I haven’t had time to do anything about it.  But, today, after dropping kids off downtown OKC, I went to Penn Square Mall to buy some clothes.  I then headed into the AT&T store.  By the grace of GOD, I caught a break in the crowd.  That and the workers laughed when they saw my ancient iPhone.

I didn’t want to buy a new phone but I didn’t have a choice.  I don’t know if I had a 3 or 4, but the camera didn’t work and it wouldn’t hold a charge.  I couldn’t hear much on it.  But, I now have a 7.  I went from a phone with 8 gigs to now having a 100 and some odd change.  They asked if this is what I wanted.  Heck no!!  I told them that I would rather have a bag phone but I don’t have that option.

So, now I have chargers that are incompatible.  Ear buds that don’t work without an adapter.  The dang phone doesn’t fit in my pocket as comfortable as the antique.  It also doesn’t fit my hand properly.  But, it knows my fingerprint so I can open it up.  And I can take a really good picture and watch a movie if need be.  Modern technology–where would we be without it?
