Apparently, I - and every other person in this vicinity - waited until Tuesday evening to get to the grocery for holiday shopping.
The place was swarming with shoppers. I ran into about 6 people I know. One person was a girl we know who is a part time waitress at our favorite local restaurant. I stopped to chat with her and noticed she had a phone in her hand. We had the following conversation:
ETW: Is that an iPhone?
Her: Yes, and it sucks.
ETW: I just got this one (show her my htc EVO).
Her: That's the one I'm getting! Do you just love it??
ETW: Um, well....
Her: Do you even know how to use it?
At that point we both busted out laughing. She is MUCH younger than me, so obviously way more hip. I told her that I'd had Buddy show me how to use the basics.
Then I said, "It's always beeping and buzzing at me and I have no clue what it wants. It drives me nuts."*
Her: You need the ringtone that says, "Answer your fucking phone."
ETW: Yeah, I do. But I don't think I'd be very popular at the preschool pick up line. I was going to get Cee Lo Green's "Fuck You" song, but I couldn't figure out how to download it.
Her: [Rolls her eyes at me]
ETW: That one wouldn't be very appropriate either, but it's not like my kids haven't heard it all already. [side note: they have not heard the song, but they have heard the "F" word]
Her: Kids today know it all.
Apparently, they do!
We ended up getting a family plan, so Buddy and the Evil Twin are getting new phones too - the Samsung Intercept. We'll have to work with the Evil Twin on all the neat-o features.
* I've actually been picking around on mine and have found several useful features aside from it being a phone. I've also learned that when reviewers listed the worst feature as "battery life", they weren't just whistling Dixie! That thing stinks!
Happy Thanksgiving, hooligans!
