Big Q Tip – Don’t Over Reach
A few years back I needed to get a new cell phone, so I went into the AT&T building and asked for something simple. The store clerk, who looked like he spent a good portion of his teen years in a locker, asked me if I'd be interested in an I-Phone. I made sure to look him in the eye and said this..."I came in for a phone. I want something that when it rings, I pick it up. I don't need to listen to music in-between calls, I have a Sony Walkman for that." He responded with, "But how do you stay organized?" "Pencil and paper buddy." "But the I-Phone is..." That's I stopped him, turned around, and walked out. I made a promise to myself that I would never own a I-Phone. Yesterday, I bought a galaxy SII, and today, I had an emotional meltdown.
I was working on a commercial when my new Q-phone started making noise. I haven't figured out yet how to make it ring like a phone, but I picked it up and touched the green button...and the phone kept making noise. I kept hitting the green button and screaming hello, and still the phone would not pick up. Finally the person hung up, and I'm sitting in my re-enforced air chair, simply God-smacked at the fact that this "smart phone" is difficult to answer. I loose my mind. I completely forget about using vegetables in place of curse words and I go into a huge 5th grader swear attack. Finally, Brandi came in and said you have to touch and slide the green button. And she said it like I was stupid for not knowing that. At what FN point in history has anyone had to touch and slide a phone to get it to work? Day one with smart phone...Feel very dumb. I think I've over-reached and am about to fall, or is it fail?
