You probably know by now that 1 in 5 American households no longer have landlines (or is that never had them?). Well, I’m one of them. I rely on my cell phone for anything for Internet browsing, weather-checking, bill paying, texting, work calls sometimes during the week, and regular calls. And, despite one unfortunate incident last year when I left it in a friend’s car (and had to go to the nearest grocery store to call that person to let them know), I haven’t had much trouble. Well, this weekend, the infamous Carter (also known as “jailbreak”) decided to eat my phone. (ugh!) So, here is my cheap self getting ready to go to the store to get a new phone (already very unhappy about the cost) and low and behold my car.is.dead.
I am now stranded without a phone to call for help.
Lesson learned. I need a backup.
So, yeah. I had a GREAT weekend.
