I NEED A PHONE ...




I need a phone … not just any phone … I want a phone exactly like the one that I have. Why? Because I like my phone. What I don’t like however is the fact that my phone is falling apart as we speak.

The little non-entity that sold me my phone must really not have liked me, but that’s okay … I know why he didn’t and probably still doesn’t like me. I will however continue to stand by the statement that I made to said individual.

All I need is a Motorola Z-6 that works the way it should … that will not fall apart on me at the slightest nudge or smallest fall … I want a Z6 that is reliable, won’t drop calls, won’t leave me without a bar of service at the most inopportune times … is that too much to ask?

I need a phone – JUST like my phone but different. Different in a way that makes sense to me … different in performance, but the same in looks … ya feel me?

I want my phone to be there for me and only me … password protected or not … my phone and I must have a one-to-one kind of relationship… it must answer when I call and be there for me and me alone…

Relationship … hmmm …

Interesting choice of word … I mean I am talking about a phone after all … right???

Many of us relate to our electronic gadgets the way we relate to the people in our lives. We can’t function without them and have forgotten what life was like before them. Could it be that we just want to belong so badly that we lose our common sense as soon as the next new thing appears on the horizon?

Not me! I just want my own phone but different. That makes perfect sense doesn’t it???

It’s like wanting your old boyfriend back, exactly as he was but different. You want his big strong arms, but you don’t want his temper. You want his sexual prowess, but you can do without the jealousy. You adore his thick curly hair, but can live away from his foul mouth. You know … EXACTLY alike but different…

Me? I just want a brand spanking new Motorola Z-6, in a new colour, but JUST LIKE my current phone – just without the moodiness, the dropped calls, the falling apart … stuff like that…

It’s not like I’m askin’ for the world or somethin’ …

Sheesh!

I know exactly what you mean.

I want a phone too! Not just any old phone but my RazrV3 which they don't make any more. For a long time regardless of dropping it on the floor, dropping it down the loo, accidentally bashing it, it never gave me any trouble. It was reliable. But some weeks ago, the rot set in! The rot set into my daughter's RazrV3 a year after she got it.

My RazrV3 is an elegant phone. I don't like my 'company Motorola U3 imitation PEBL. The sound is distorted and I reckon we got them as a 'job lot' literally!

I am using a tried and true, cheap Nokia which has all the gadgets but it is not my RazeV3. And the damn thing does not transfer ring tones!

Am I too, asking too much????

And I have to add this: the letters which I have to enter to verify my comment reads "farti" Howzat???
