Did you know that the cell phone you receive when signing a 2 year contract with a cell phone carrier is programmed to self-destruct at the exact 2 year mark? I know because I have been sticking it to the man by not renewing my cell phone contract for the past 2 years.
It hasn't been easy sticking it to the man. There have been a few times that I have almost succumbed to the pressure and just renewed my contract with Verizon or *gasp* switched to AT&T, but what happened today made all the suffering with old crummy cell phones worth it.
I finally have a new phone without signing another cell phone contract. Yay!
Of course there is a catch. It is Alcoholly's cell phone.
I wish I would have known that Alcoholly was going to dispose of her phone 3 days after she purchased it because she couldn't figure out how to charge or use it. I would have encouraged her to get a popular and expensive cell phone. Unfortunately, that is not how it worked. A few months ago I took her into the Verizon store and asked for the perfect cell phone for really old people who do not know how to use a cell phone. This is what they gave me -
First of all, there is no camera. The buttons and text on the phone are huge. You can turn up the volume louder than any phone I've ever used in my life. The side is color coded. The best part is that there is a big 911 button right in the middle of the phone. I am already predicting that this will be Charlie's favorite button to press.
However, it works and it is new. I am not complaining. Take that, MAN!
