I did it. I finally did it. Yesterday I joined the ranks of the Crack um uh, Blackberry users. Well "users" is a term I have to use loosely, because I'm not sure I could even make a phone call on it yet without reading the instruction book.
My children gave me a hard time for years because I stubbornly held on to my brick of a cell phone, just because I KNEW HOW TO WORK IT! That's the thing, I have so much technology I have to keep up with in my life and in my work, one more thing was more than I could handle!
I still don't know how to work the remotes for the television, but that's because other than a couple select programs, I don't watch television, so I don't need to really know it. And besides, that's why I have Jim! HE knows how to work the remotes for the TV.
For me though, being in touch with our couples and being accessible and reachable is really important. I want to be able to give them immediate feedback when they email me. So now I have a Blackberry.
So if you email me in the next couple days, and you get back something unintelligible that says it was "sent from a Blackberry" now you'll know that it was me, just trying to figure the darn thing out!
The salesman at AT&T said that I would hate it for the first few days--he was definitely right about that! But he says after a week I will feel better about it and after a couple months, I will love it. I am waiting patiently for the love. Argh!
