Phone Exchange

The send button on my brand new cell phone became possessed, making calls without permission and refusing to make calls when I actually wanted to. I gave it one final chance to redeem itself when I lowered the sensitivity of the buttons. However, the phone continued its evil ways, so I was forced to exchange it.

When I brought it to the store, the clerk at the exchange desk took the phone and started playing around with it. After a minute or so of this, I finally asked her what she was doing.

Her: Trying to send a message.

Me: Um, I don't have free texting, just so you know.

Her: Then what were you doing when you couldn't get the send button to work?

Me: (trying not to roll my eyes, though I may have failed in my efforts) Trying to make a phone call.

Do phones have so many features now that people have forgotten what their original and primary function is? Hey, look! I can e-mail my friends, play music, take pictures, watch videos, check the weather, and read the news! All on one device! What about phone calls? I'm not sure. I haven't gotten that far in the manual yet.

Your phone was trying to do you a favor. You know you didn't want to talk on the phone, anyway. If you keep the one that doesn't work, you have a good excuse for not making a phone call.
