Oh Good Grief...I've Created a Monster

Hubby got my cell phone yesterday (which he said he didn't want, he doesn't like change, he loved his old phone, etc) and he has been talking to it non-stop since yesterday.  He found that he could talk to the phone, ask questions, tell it to call or text people, and he won't stop talking to it!

Every few minutes he will ask me "how do I do ______?" and I will have to stop what I am doing and Google instructions or pull up a YouTube video to figure out the 501 things that the fancy phone can do.  I hardly use my phone anyway, except for checking email and taking pictures as well as the rare phone call or text message, so I don't know how to do much with it but apparently the phone can do lots of stuff which is impressing the heck out of hubby just said "OK Google tell me a joke" and he is laughing hilariously.  Yikes!


  1. Hahahahahaha!! We had a tragedy of sorts here. My hubby's phone went to the black screen of death and we have tried everything to recover it but nothing has worked. The phone has an irreplaceable battery so you can't pop it out and pop it in to do a reboot. He has lost all his info and photos and he's devastated. He went to Amazon to order another phone, but when it came, it turned out that it didn't work in our service area, so he had to send it back and buy another one which is just like my new one. I'm worried when it comes because he'll have to activate it and figure out how to transfer all his info over to the new phone. Megan did that for me because that kind of thing causes me tremendous anxiety. It's being delivered today. Wish us luck!

    1. Oh no! You might want to get Megan on FaceTime or something so she can walk you through the process! Good luck!
