So, I woke up this morning to a dead iPhone. Truly dead. Not just flat battery dead. It’s been a long time coming, but the last week I knew it was on its way out.
I managed to stay calm and collected. I mean, how bad could it be? It’s just a phone, right?
So, I trotted down to my local Vodafone to get a replacement underway (I do recommend PhoneInsure if you don’t already have it). They dutifully and quickly did their paperwork and a replacement is underway.
They gave me this as a loaner. Now, of course I’m grateful for it as it means I have some semblance of being ‘on the grid’, but OMG, how dependent have I become on modern technology.
This Nokia is a freaking nightmare!
I have no contacts loaded. I don’t know who is calling me or the numbers of anybody!!!
I have no idea how to text anybody. The interface is nonsensical. And completely unusable.
I don’t know how much money I have in my accounts. Who has paid me? Who hasn’t. How do I transfer funds when needed? I can’t!!!!
I don’t know where I need to be or who I need to see.
I don’t know what I need to purchase at the supermarket.
I can’t check in to places. My mayoralty’s are at risk!
I can’t claim my purchase receipts at Farro Fresh.
And so many more innovations that have become critically important to my life and business. All gone.
These could be the longest ten-fourteen days of my life.
