The day after my landline phone service came back on, my cell phone service
lost a vital component... the phone.
With my dad down here and a suddenly bad alternator in my car (how's that
for timing?), we went out to get one. Sears, auto parts store,
chinese restaurant. I know I had it in Sears, but I noticed my
holster was empty when we got home. I tried calling it but the
phone was off! I never turned it back on after leaving the
station the night before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In two days it hasn't
been found at any of those three stores, or in the truck, or outside fallen
on the parking lot, or in the apartment.
OK great, so we met all four requirements for me to lose this phone:
The phone had to be turned off, I forget to turn it on about a third of the
time after leaving the station or church.
The holster had to let the phone slip out, which rarely happens and only
when I brush against something (this usually prompts me to make sure I'm
still wearing the phone anyway)
It had to fall on grass and/or I had to *NOT* hear it crashing onto the
It had to fall in a place where no one would find it within 36 hours (like
along a nature trail, except OOPS... I was only in populated areas!)
The service is now suspended... Will it be found? Will I get a
new one? Will I decide to screw it and cancel my contract?
Stay tuned for another exciting episode of EG STUFF!
