Yesterday a client called me
I am so lame with the cellphone. Well, that's not entirely accurate. I'm getting pretty good at the video and video editing functions on the phone. I created my own ringtone, which is nice except that no one ever calls me. It's startling when I hear it, "what's that loud music, I love that song, oh wait, that's my cellphone, duh, now how do I answer this thing." And then it's like a test, as I fumble with it in my hands and open it, and accidentally hit the button (god knows which one) that sends a "busy" signal to the caller. The screen
cackles helplessly informs me of this as soon as I have a chance to focus on it. Then the phone comes alive again (I remarkably do not shriek and throw the phone in the air)and since I have the screen in focus telling me exactly what to do, I press the button that is indicated to me which answers it and then I put it to my ear. I laugh and explain to the caller that I am new at answering the cellphone, and that I have just failed the test. Again.
