So I've been a Verizon customer for insert number of years now, and I've had the awesome LG Chocolate special strawberry edition for a few years now ...
So after going without a phone upgrade for a few years I had some credit with Verizon, and after some deliberation between the Blackberry Curve and LG Touch (honestly, after using the iTouch, the LG touch just seems clunky... like going from filet mignon to skirt steak... LOL!) I bit the bullet and this came in the mail today:
Aaaaahhhh! Never before have I felt so OLD while trying to use this phone!!! There are a lot of bells and whistles and trackballs and buttons, and I'm very apprehensive to backing out of a menu I don't want to or something, and where exactly are my ringtones, and how come I can't change the background, and how the hell can I stop the little blinky from blinking every single time some goon on my Facebook updates their status?? (Mind you I haven't read the instruction manual too much... that's how I roll!) Where the hell is the internet? I'm not going to ring up a jillion dollar bill by being on it a lot, even with the Blackberry Doodlydoo Web Mail plan? Can I blog from it??
I guess I'm saying I feel old because my younger self would have figured everything out with this phone like, yesterday. And my 28 year old self is ... ok, I'll admit it, a little intimidated by the metallic pink thingy sitting on my coffee table and blinking at me with some sort of message. I turn 29 next month and fear for my technology-riddled future.
So, I guess while I love technology and new gadgets, it's only to an extent, and to technology, I say ... WOOF!!!!
