BEHOLD THE CRACKBERRY / LOVEBERRY!
Yes, I cannot decide if "Crackberry" is appropriate since I am addicted to it already, or if I should call it the "Loveberry" cuz I loooooove it sooooo much! I am one step closer to a complete and fulfilling life. Ha. There are just a couple more things I need...ok nevermind.
Anyway, my boss told me to "get the hell outta here" at 1:30 today to start the holiday weekend early (he is so awesome) - so I promptly left since all I was doing anyway was reading my Loveberry manual and doing setup. (I did SOME work, OK? Hardly anyone was there today...) I now am proficient! I went to get a pedicure and while she was dolling up my footses, I was checking email and surfing my favorite blogs - all the while sitting in a massage chair. 45 minutes of Heaven, people.
Yeah, I'm one of THOSE people now. The ones you get annoyed with because all they do is sit there completely entranced in their own private technological world - ignoring everyone around them. I'm sure I will get yelled at soon. I am here to say I UNDERSTAND now. Don't you judge me!
One more thing. I have to tell you about Dave the Verizon Wireless guy. Dave is the awesomest customer service rep that I've ever talked to. EVER. I know Dave now. He is a friend. Usually I want to cancel service when I talk to customer service, but now that I know Dave is out there, I have hope again. First and foremost, he was cheerful and friendly and funny. THEN, even though I was not eligible for any kind of discount - he did it ANYWAY because he said his best friend (who has brain cancer) lives about 1 mile from me, and Dave wants to take care of all residents of this town. (Dave is local - how often does THAT happen??) So I made out like a bandit. All the while he was setting up my Crackberry order and answering each and every one of my gabillion questions, we chatted about our lives. We even both lost a parent this year and were talking about that! Dave sounded about 22, but he said he was a very immature 43 year old. I can appreciate that, because as you are all aware, I act 12. After about an hour, Jim asked me who the hell I was talking to. I said "Dave". He said "Who?" "Dave. The best Verizon Wireless guy on the planet!" Jim rolled his eyes.
After I hung up, I cursed at myself because I forgot to give Dave my blog URL. Damnit! Jim said "There is someone out there who doesn't go to your blog?" Pashaw! I WISH there was only one!
Not a good pic because the phone screen has interference and won't cooperate with my camera.
