So yeah. Yesterday while I was home sick I decided to take care of a much-needed errand. I bought a new phone. My fifth fight with Verizon Wireless happened IN the store. And I very nearly walked out and went to a Sprint store. Except I hate Sprint. I don't hate Sprint, I hate their coverage. So I worked it out with Verizon that the phone that should have cost me next to nothing, but they were GOING to charge me $200 for, they only charged me $160 (with a $50 mail-in-rebate) for. Bastardos.
So I bought a new phone.
And guess what I found today? That's right. You guessed it. My old stinking phone. In my computer bag! Where I'd looked a couple dozen times. Dammit! I needed a new phone anyway, but could have done better on the price if I'd been able to wait 7 more days for a new phone. Jerks!
Anyway, all's well that ends well. I've got the new phone I needed. I've got the old phone which, once charged again, will reveal all the numbers I've been missing for the past couple of weeks. Whew.
