What's A Girl To Do?
I've done it now. I've fogotten the password to my online cell phone account. There is nothing I dread more than walking in the cell phone store to work on phone problems, but I have no choice. I need them to look up the password. The guys behind the desk hate it too. We have a long history, and most of it is not pretty. It involves the shutting on and off of certain phones. It happens when you have teens, but I won't go there. If you have little ones, you'll experience it yourself some day, and I don't want to ruin it for you. :)
And if you are thinking . . . "Why doesn't she just call customer support?"
My answer is "Are you insane?"
I'm not even going to attempt calling customer support, that's even worse. Getting past the "press this option" buttons drives me nuts, and then I end up on "please hold" for 45 minutes. When I finally get a real person, it's someone with a foreign accent and I can't understand a word they say because I don't hear very well over the phone! We both end up saying "What . . . what was that??" for a good 5 minutes. Then the phone dies and I have to recharge.
What was I talking about again?? Oh yea, remembering stuff. (Ahem.) I need to get a better password method, that's for dang sure. I have so many now that I can't keep track of them all. I think I'll remember, but I never do. Just like when I put an object in a special place so that I remember where it's at. I never remember the special place!
Any tips?? Do you have a password method I should know about?
P.S. I just now remembered that I had Book Club last night, even with reminder emails and a calendar reminder on my phone this morning! (Agh.) Sorry friends. I was really looking forward to talking about The Distant Hours. But I did remember my hair appointment . . . so I've got that goin' for me.
