Yeah I JUST Got an iPhone and Lost a Facebook Friend

Okay I finally got an iPhone. I loved my droid, but he was dying and the new ones are too big, so I finally got an iPhone. I love it so much. I got the 4 because it was free and because I like it. I like the size, I don't need a phone that's as big as an iPad mini. This one is perfect and did I mention the price was right. My plan went down $25 dollars a month with the iPhone so it not only cost me nothing, it's saving me money.

I actually lost a FB two weeks ago because he was throwing a fit that I didn't get the 5 or wait for the 5S. Now I don't understand this behavior, it's my phone, why do you care?

He sent me SEVERAL nasty FB messages basically calling me stupid and arguing with me about MY upgrade, even though he doesn't work for the phone carrier I am with and doesn't know what my plan is.

You know how mobile phone companies are, everyone on a different deal-like renting an apt from a big company, everyone is different.

This person could NOT stand it that I didn't wait for the biggest and best one. Look, I don't need Siri, I don't need a finger scan, I don't need a phone with 600GB of RAM or whatever ridiculous amount there is. My droid didn't even have 1GB and guess what? I never came close to using it, not even close.

But even if I did, shouldn't it be MY choice what phone I get? I mean, why did it upset this person so much?

I had to block him because his rant went on for days. He kept telling me that I needed to be grateful because he was teaching me, the stupid girl, about things. Like I didn't know that iPhone 5S was coming out. I am a grown up and I made the choice based on my needs and price. That said, being gracious, I thanked him several times and asked him to drop it, and he wouldn't.

I still don't know why he cares.

It's none of anyone's business.

This all said, iPhone 4 and 4s are both AWESOME phones and I remember when they came out how much they were loved, and not everyone is planning on which Apple store to camp out at for a $700 phone, a PHONE for that much! Wow, now that is something I don't understand, but to each his own.

I love my 4!!

What this experience has taught me, you can't talk about; religion, politics or Apple products... sigh..

I Said I Was From Another Planet---and It Worked!

Have you ever been approached by someone when out grocery shopping, or in a mall, or anywhere that you don't want to talk to? Yes of course you have, we all have. Today I finally figured out how to get people to leave me alone. Finally!

A couple years ago I was being recruited into Scientology by some folks who work in the industry for a well known celeb who is mad into it. It wasn't my thing, but at the time when I was approached by religious fanatics I would replay with a quote from Hubbard and that usually shut them up. And for added bonus it was funny. That said, it still didn't work in all situations.

Today I was at the grocery store and it's hotter than hell out so when I exited, I wanted to get to my car as quickly as possible. I accidently cut of a man and his son. I have to elaborate, an African American man and his son-it was an accident. My phone beeped and so I was looking down while exiting the store-Annoying I know, sorry but it had to be done.

I said, "oh sorry, excuse me" and the man turned around with anger from 200 years. He started in on me being white and him black and this is why I cut him off. I apologized to him again and he said, "so why say you are sorry if not because I am black?" I said, "because you are human." and that's when the idea hit me.. human.. I'm human he is a human, human = Earthling. He kept on and I said, "what do you mean by black?"
He looked at me like I was from another planet! (ha!) He said, "what!!? Are you stupid?" I replied, "I don't know what you mean by black, I am not from here."
He said "where are you from Mars?" looking to his son as he chuckled. I then laughed and said, "no that would be silly life can't survive on Mars." He said, "so you mean you aren't from California?" I said, "no I am not from this planet....Earth." He looked at me then grabbed his son and walked as fast as he could away from me.

Hahaha!!! It worked!!
