Funny Phone Fings

We all tease The Mister because he’s one of those people who types forever to say very little.
Are you familiar with THE BUBBLES?

For a hundred years I stare at my phone, watchin the little bubbles dance. boy he must have a lot to say…

Okay? OKAY?!?

Y’all know these people, yeah?

My husband is those people.

 

I, too, like to forget to press Send and then wonder why the hell no one responds.

BUT DID YOU PRESS SEND?

 

 

Mentor gave me her cell phone to answer while she was on an office line, but I don’t know how to press the right buttons on strange, alien, non-iPhone phones so I accidentally disconnected the call. I did figure out how to call back, but it was terrifying, and hysterical.

I. I was hysterical.

You have to read the FIRST name on your phone, because you can’t just say sexy things to any ol Mottern.

 

I locked up the office while on my phone. Then I stopped and did that thing where I panicked because my phone wasn’t in my purse, and wasn’t on my desk BECAUSE IT WAS IN MY HAND!

 

In the same vein, I did some calculations on my cell phone and then used my house phone to call and report the total, because I wasn’t sure where my cell phone was, since at that time, IT WAS OBVIOUSLY A CALCULATOR!

Best of all was I called home to tell Sassy to put the lasagna in the oven… I did say, “I love you,” but also, “If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call.”

But OMFG, Press Send!

Happy Friday Everyone!

    Pretty dang funny. So true. What I hate is watching a typing bubble and then it goes away with no text and no explanation. Hey, I’m here!!! Come back!

    haha I watch those little bubbles…and wait…then they go away with no more messages. I forget to push send a lot, and if I’m sending a photo to someone, I forget to actually put the photo on there. I then get a ?? message from them. 🙂

    Those bubbles are designed to raise our blood pressure. “I can’t change the subject, cause she’s replying to the earlier message…come on!”

    My worst was when, while talking to my wife on the way home, I said: “Damn, I have to go back to the office, I think I forgot my phone.”

    The smart technology is new to me so I don’t use it that much. Actually except for pictures and the rare text I don’t use it much at all. For some reason I never can hear the ring tone when someone tries to call me. I can relate to that sudden sinking feeling when you think The Phone is missing. Happened to me after I left the store. Couldn’t find it so I pulled over so I could locate it. Wasn’t gonna use it I just like to make sure all of my stuff is where it should be. Happy Friday to you too.

    I’ve never been fond of phones, so cell phones leave me kind of meh. But I do admit that those bubbles make me doubt my self worth in a way that leaving a message on an answering machine never did. 😉

    I never forget to press send. My problem is that I stare at the text until it shows up as bold which means it actually went through (on my IM program). So I’ll be standin’ there starin’ at the phone just waitin’…

    Probably why y’all get those long standin’ bubbles…

      Hmm…but why only SOME people?
      I wish I didn’t forget to press Send. Good gravy, I sometimes have fits when the girls don’t answer!

      BUT DID YOU PRESS SEND???

        I often yell at Hub saying he didn’t press send, but it usually turns out that my phone didn’t notify me that he replied. That always starts an argument!
        Stupid phones! Giving us fits and grief and arguments!

          Oh, we’ve had that, too!
          That was Android on Altel, though. I once stood outside the zoo gates for 20 FREAKIN MINUTES with unhappy toddlers, because my husband never got the text! He finally just drove up because he was worried! We were in the van, already to the interstate when my text hit his phone!
          Those are THE WORST phone things. Mmhm.

      I do this too! A friend of mine who I text on a very regular basis used to not get some of my messages (if they sent as text message instead of iMessage, there was sometimes a weird delay), so I got in the habit of making sure the little “delivered” thing pops up under each message I send

    Once I was on the phone with my boss and when finished with the conversation I said, Okay, Bye, Love you! She laughed because she’s a mother, too.

    My dog is scared to death of the noises of the cell phones. So Hubby and I have them on vibrate. Now it is useless to call to find where we left it this time. God forbid it is tucked under covers or pillows! We have the same face as your kitten above as we tear up the entire house. All to protect our scaredy cat dog!

      OH LOL! Love you! Haha! I would DIE if I said that to my boss. Just DIE. He’s not a mother. lol

      I know what you mean about the silenced phone. Omaword, sometimes it’s just seemingly disappeared! I can’t imagine that all the time. You’re a dedicated PupMama!

        I am hoping she will get less nervous about it all. After all there are times we need to have the sound on if we expect to hear from our loved ones. All of them and most businesses know to call the house phone. Cell=another computer. FB and text place.

    The bublles. I have a friend whop messages me while at work. She will start typing something, and then get pulled away for something at her work. So the bubbles just sit there. Or she’ll be done and accidentally hit a character into the next line box, and I’m just waiting for her to finish. It’s the worst! 😀
    Also, I am going to steal the “If you have any questions or concerns” bit and use it on everyone close to me just because. LOL

    Oh, the bubbles, the bubbles! Facebook has the bubbles, too! So I’m like TYPE TYPE TYPE — Oh, better wait for the next comment before I respond — DELETE DELETE DELETE — bubbles bubbles bubbles bubbles bubbles…. Nothin’. By that time, I’ve both forgotten what I was going to say and lost interest in the whole thing. Thanks for the larfs, Joey and friends!

  12. Funny that we’re both talking about (very different) bubbles today. 🙂 I’ve seen those bubbles…and waited…and waited…and waited…and then…NOTHING! What’s goin’ on? And then messages and answers cross. Ah, such difficulties. 🙂 Now back to trying to keep my corned beef at a simmer, rather than a rolling boil or nothing.

  13. I’ve noticed the phenomenon – and shave scratched my head when the results of all that typing are meagre – or nothing.

    I own a smart phone (not an iPhone), and still haven’t had the time to figure out how most of it works, because I DON’T CARE and rarely leave the house anyway.

  14. Thank you. You always crack me up. I’m like the Mister. I take A LOT of time to say very little. Farmguy often asks if I’m writing a book. I guess we want to get it just right. 😉

    I remember the first time I had to answer a call on a smart phone where — yknow that thing where you have to sliiiiiide your finger to answer or hang up? Instead of just touching​ the red or green phone icon thingy? Yeah, I learned the hard way that I did not understand how to answer my new phone. Picture me frantically poking at the green icon (“WHY IS THIS NOT WORKING??!!!!!”) until the person calling me just hangs up.

    THE PERSON CALLING TO INTERVIEW ME FOR A JOB I BADLY WANTED.

    Ugh. Never have I been so irrationally angry​ at a piece of technology!!

      OH MY GAWD. Srsly? That is terrible! I think that’s rational anger. I had an iPhone for months and months before I found out the green alarm buttons, or notification buttons could be touched instead of grabbed like the answer screen, and I felt wicked dumb. :/ But then — SHOULDN’T CONSISTENCY BE IMPERATIVE?!? Bah.

    Those bubbles make me paranoid, especially when it goes on forever, starts, stops again, etc. then there’s just a few words. Like, what the fuck did you REALLY want to say to me?! One day I might stop speaking to someone over the bubbles.

    My husband drives me crazy with his texting habits. He’ll send a few words per text message instead of just sending whatever it is he wants to say and using spaces to make it look neater. You can get 10 texts from him and it be nothing more than “Hey, what are you doing? What time will you be home? Can you pick up some milk while you’re out? Baby Girl’s acting wild. Love ya.”

  20. I am very impatient and can’t bear it if the bubbles are there for too long. I just go onto the next subject that I want to talk about, as I just can’t be doing with waiting!
    It can all get a bit messy though!!! 🙂

  21. I have had frantic times trying to hurry up and get out of the house, running in circles to find my phone, only to realize that if I’m talking to somebody while racing around the house, that means that my phone is in my hand! Thanks for the laugh. 🙂

  22. That is hysterical – of course the phone was a calculator. 😆 I actually checked my back pocket and various places I might have left my phone before leaving today. Thank the flamingos something happened that made my phone buzz. It was in my hoodie’s pocket.

  24. So funny! I just recently got a new phone, the Google Pixel. I also have a Samsung gear watch from my previous phone. Well, my first call coming in was from my hubby. Scared to answer because I didn’t know how but finally got it, he sounded so far away and he kept saying that. Didn’t think nothing of it until he called again the next day. My watch was answering my phone! lol I felt like an idiot. Further research, found the google sees the watch as a Bluetooth and so I had to shut off the setting to be answered to my phone and not the watch! Hubby laughed at me. Hopefully, they will fix that problem, was nice to answer the watch when my phone is in my purse, now it just tells me to answer my phone. lol Good thing I get few calls.

    Once on someone’s blog I confessed I unloaded all my groceries and sat down to record in my checkbook the bill’s amount. Then had dinner. Was thinking I must have left phone out in car, nope! Panic mode: asked neighbor to step inside my apartment and call me! No sound.
    Got in my car and went to service counter at grocery. No one turned in phone, left name and #. Got home and pulled out my leftovers and heard the sound for my text. In my refrigerator drawer with cheese!

    I am a fast texter and as others mentioned move quickly to important (to me) information mode. Maybe I just want to know the time or what to wear and get back off. I have had one guy in my recent life accuse me of being “distant!” Acting like I was cold or something (?) I actually texted him that if he wanted a friendly me, please call me! I love arranging a day with a female friend, “I’m leaving after I use the bathroom again!” 🙂

      Oh that’s fantastic! LOL In the cheese drawer! I forget what I once put in the freezer, but we’re surely all guilty of that kinda thing now and again.
      I’m not one to be with my phone, so I sometimes end up with a call on the land line from The Mister, or I get home and see someone’s texted my brains out. Some people really need to feel like they’re always connected. I’m not good at that. :/
