I just renewed my 2 year contract with Verizon. When that happens, I get a new phone (FOR FREEEEEEE, I love getting things for free).
See this pretty little thing?
This was my new phone the Samsung Glyde. Doesn't the name Glyde just sound sophisticated and trendy.
With it's keyboard that slides out and it's pretty little touch screen. The dark blue sleekness of it just pulled me in to it's cool little world. It made me feel special, I couldn't wait to whip it out and send a quick text so my friends could be impressed.
After 1 month with my new phone I was ready to break up with it. It's not all about looks my blogging BFF's. If I can quote the great Jimmy Soul
"If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
Never make a pretty women your wife
Go for my personal point of view
Get an ugly girl to marry you"
That is the advice I give to you all. It's not all about a pretty face and a slamming keyboard. DO NOT GET THIS PHONE! DO NOT GET THIS PHONE! WARNING! WARNING!
I don't think I've ever sworn at an inanimate object as much as I did at this phone (just kidding...or am I). The worst part was when the alarm would go off at 6:00 am at which time I would lean over to hit snooze but the phone had frozen so it wouldn't turn off. Do you know how happy a sleeping husband is when his wife's current love won't shut it's mouth.
Not good for Haley.
That's just the beginning of my day with this horrible little devil from hell. I just want to drop it in the toilet and watch it swirl away from me. Of course then I wouldn't have a phone so I have to come to my senses and pull it back over the edge. Darn technology. Five years ago I could have survived without a cell phone but now (pause as I check my phone real quick to see if I missed a call) it's like a drug. A beautiful, stupid, useless drugphone.
Finally I had enough. I couldn't take the fighting, the name calling, the obstinate way the screen mocked me. I put on my big, tough girl pants and marched into Verizon and told them if they didn't exchange my phone I would cancel my plan and find someone who would take care of me the way that I deserved. My bluff worked, they bought it. I didn't even have to cry or show a little fake cleavage. I AM THE MASTER OF MY UNIVERSE!!! I was pretty excited.
They exchanged my model for a sweet, caring EnV. Whom I love and will love forever (or at least until I can upgrade in two years).
My friends, I'm happy to introduce you to my EnV, actually my EnV doesn't look exactly like this and it's black...but the material point is it's not a Glyde. It makes me happy and it doesn't make me cry and swear like the Glyde does.
I'm going to propose this weekend, hope Nate doesn't mind.
Now...where do I trade Nate in for a newer model?
I'm just kidding!!!!
