As many of you know (or have no doubt figured out by now), we are ALWAYS up for a good laugh. In the middle of this unpredictable season we call summer and just off the rollercoaster of ALA, we are in the middle of moving from one floor in our building to another (see Kayleigh's post on her cubicle must-haves). I think we all can agree that it is truly amazing how much you can accumulate in an office…given the opportunity to do so. While Virginia, Kayleigh and I attempt to figure out what to keep or discard, we came across this ancient artifact:
If you guessed a cell phone…you are correct! However, it is not just any cell phone. It is (as I like to say) gi-normous! It is very reminiscent of the “Zack Morris phone” from the television show Saved by the Bell. We also found the order confirmation from Bell Atlantic Mobile from 1998! (Does Bell Atlantic Mobile still exist?)
On a personal note, my very first cell phone was very similar to this one…just not as big! I kept that phone for nearly four years until the size of the phone, as well as the humiliation from the fact that I was still using it got the better of me and I downsized. ..Or so I thought! If you have a funny and/or embarrassing cellular phone story…we’d love to hear it!
