I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
It does cause frustration for some, including me at times.
Others just seem to get pissed at me without me doing a thing.
Once again, I have forgotten my cell phone.
It’s plugged in at home. Charging. It’s been plugged in and charging since 9 p.m. last night.
I suspect it is also:
• Ringing with missed phone calls.
• Buzzing with text messages.
• Beeping with Facebook updates.
I am the only one aware of the fact that I left my cell phone at home today.
Others are cursing, swearing, and generally getting pissed off, thinking I am ignoring them.
I guess in a way I am. All the beeps, buzzes, blinking lights, and vibrations are going unanswered or unreplied to.
I can’t reply, answer, or acknowledge these alerts because I don’t have my phone.
It’s at home.
I hear nothing and that’s not because I’ve lost my hearing.
It’s because my phone’s at home.
Sure, I can stay in contact via the computer, if my computer were here with me.
My laptop is also at home.
I leave the laptop at home because I carry a smart phone in my purse.
Well, most days, I carry a smart phone in my purse.
Today, my phone is at home with my laptop.
Did I bring anything with me today?
I came to the office with my reading glasses on my head.
I also have a pair of reading glasses in my purse. The purse that doesn’t have the cell phone.
The glasses on my head? They are the pair that stays at home, in case I leave the ones from my purse at my office.
