Technology funny bones

My son changes his Facebook profile like he changes his socks
in his words "I just keep taking better pictures of myself."
We both got new phones last week
I requested the simplest phone I could get that takes good pictures.
They sold me the Sony Xperia M.
The reason we got new phones was that I hated my old one, which was finally paid off,
 I never liked it from day one
and Trevor lost his old one,
most likely he left it on his car as he drove off, as when he tried to phone it it was turned off,
a good indication that it was broken as he had a password on it where someone finding it
shouldn't be able to do anything to it. 
So his new one is the newest model of his old one,
 an HTC
Anyway, I asked him today if he ever installed that 'find my phone" app on his new one,
so while I was eating my breakfast, he was complaining about how
technologically complicated the app was. 
I suggested maybe the one installed on his (and my) phone would be easier. 
So after going through all the steps on the first one, he tried that one.
When he tried it out, the answer to where is my phone was:
"Your phone is in your hands."
I thought that was hilariously funny. 
Almost choked on my porridge and berries
Still chuckling over it. 
Just now he popped his head in my office and said
"Wait a minute, if I lost my phone, how would I ask my phone where it was?"
Good question. 
I suppose there's a technologically smart answer, like accessing it from your
computer or another phone or something.
I'm still laughing over "your phone is in your hands"


  1. Oh my gosh, I miss my kids. This is a scene I could play with my own son and still be laughing. Thank you for this laugh out loud, and very "real" post:) Great fun!

  2. Ha ha - good thing I wasn't eating porridge or I'd have snorted too!

    As for cell phones, smart phones ... had to carry one for years for business and when I no longer had to, I swore I'd never get another. I'm not important enough for someone to be able to reach me in the grocery line or wherever.

  3. Oh. That is hilarious but I wonering where you ask when your phone is ĺost. I lòve that you and your son can have fun moments in the morning! Lisa G.

  4. Hilarious!! Technology usually leaves me feeling like an idiot. I do such stupid things that I have to laugh.

  5. OK -- true confessions. I have a stupid phone. Not only is it stupid, but I don't even know how to set up the voice mail. So the question is, which is more stupid -- the phone or the person using it?
