The Grocery Trip

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?
ETW: No.

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!



  1. Happy Thanksgiving ETW!

    I usually find that by the time I figure out my new phone it's time for it to be replaced.

  2. I have the same trouble as mystery chick. By the time I learn the phone, it is time to get a new one. One of my granddaughter's just got a new droid and it is fantastic!!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Vehicle describing is separate from washing and waxing, though some automotive centers offer these providers with each other. In basic, a wash and wax employment is just that – the exterior in the car is cleaned and waxed. Automobile detailing goes even more, and although concentrated within the interior from the car or truck, vehicle detailing also consists of some exterior function.

    Lastly, nicks or scratches inside the paint could be taken care of by vehicle describing too. Every single blemish is cleaned of wax and carefully sanded with wet/dry grit or perhaps a fine sanding block.[url=]Auto Detailing[/url] The right automotive touch-up paint is applied in layers, allowing each coat to dry [url=]Auto Detailing[/url]before applying the subsequent. The location is once more sanded, then polished and waxed. When carried out properly, auto detailing leaves one hard pressed to find the original blemish.

  4. Smart phones can suck the juice quickly.

    Have fun with it.

  5. Turn off your GPS really sucks the juice. Install Advanced Task Killer [its free at Android Market], it'll kill all those little app bots that shorten the battery life

  6. Don't ya just love that "toys too smart for your generation" look you get from some people? I'm looking at the EVO too, just need time to get to the store. And Terry, thanks for the tips. And I laughed my @$$ off the first time I heard that song.
