For Christmas my husband and I decided that instead of buying gifts for each other we would get new iPhones. We both had the original iPhones and wanted to upgrade to the new 3Gs. His was in mint condition but mine had taken a beating by me and the kids.
We decided to give my husbands old phone to my sister and I would keep my old one for the kids to play all of their games on. I had a lot of preschool apps and the kids were allowed to touch my phone only if they were sitting right next to me. I had recently downloaded a bunch of dinosaur apps for Caiden as dinosaurs are his new favorite things in the whole wide world. It came in so handy when we had to take Granny and Grandpa to the doctors. It was working out great!
On Tuesday, we take Sputters to get her chemo treatments and it takes about 2 hours so we always plan a fun day and go to lunch or the pet stores to look at all of the animals. So yesterday on the long drive to the vets, Caiden was having so much fun playing games in the back seat on his phone, we dropped Sputters off and went up the street to a Chinese restaurant.
Once we sat down Caiden handed over the old phone to me and I set it next to me on the table. WHY DIDN’T I PUT IT IN MY PURSE??? WHY???
We are just about finished eating when Dr. Carlos calls to let me know that Sputters is ready. So of course we all have to go to the bathroom. We come out and I pay the bill gather up the sippy cups when Caiden then decides that he should hop in the round booth behind ours and walk around on the seats! I jump up and grab him by the hand and say come on were leaving, Riley was being very good she is standing right by me.
Later that night I thought to myself that I should put the old phone on the charger so it will be ready for them in the morning and then it hits me, the last time I saw that phone it was sitting on the table in the restaurant.
Well you guessed it, I didn’t pick up the old phone and of course the restaurant doesn’t have it. Nope nobody turned in a phone not even the bus boy! Boooo whooo whooo! It was a great idea while it lasted. Goodbye old iPhone I’ll miss you! :-(
Oh and by the way, the new 3Gs ROCKS! It is so fast I don’t even turn on the WIFI anymore that’s how fast it is.
