Everyone, I'm totally lost without him. Actually, I am talking about my cell phone, not my husband.
Well, my beloved Blackberry broke down on me last night after I tried to download the new software. It totally went and I can't make or receive calls or it won't even let me turn on/off it. It's dead...
After being on the phone for three hours with three technicians trying to revive him, I was told that my Blackberry was useless. Now, since I purchased the phone less than a year ago, it was under warrenty and they are sending me a replacement for free. The catch is, it takes 5 business days with standard shipping for free or 1 - 2 business days shipping for $12. Of course, I told them that I would pay $12, so get him to me fast!! My new phone will arrive on coming Monday which means I have to live without a cell for the next four nights. I am devastated!!
I ususally use my cell to send text messages or browse online while at work - especially when I'm bored and nothing to do. I am not allowed to surf the web at work, so it comes really handy, if you know what I mean. And I love texting my friends or my husband, just saying something silly or kill time. Great thing about those smart phones nowadays is that you have an instant access to email or web. They tell you when you have new email or text - say hello to "beep, you got mail!" Therefore, not getting those instant fix is sooo painful to me.
Today was my "day 1" without my cells phone. Oh my god, do you know how hard it has been? It is indeed torture!! I was showing the first sign of withdrawls - I was shaking because I couldn't text or just browsing through it. I honestly don't know what I am going to do without it until Monday.
Now I am back to the old methods for communication - email and home phone. It's killing me. Seriously. If you think about it, we used to have a pager and called the person back or check the answering machine for messages or wait until you go home and check your emails. Do you remember those days? We did have patience back then, don't you agree? So I guess, this could be a good thing for me.. Maybe I can relearn how to be patient and enjoy the silence... Not! LOL
So, everyone, do you love your cell phone? What would you do if your phone gets lost or being damaged and have to live without it for a few days? Would you go insane or what? Hold your phone tightly everyone because you don't want to lose or break it!
