Even If It Mispronounces Things
It's not an expense I felt like I needed, so I put it off for a while and then finally gave in and went and bought a cheap new one.
Which was so cheap everything sounded terrible including the ring and the people on the other end of the line.
So back it went, and I bought the more expensive brand that I was used to.
But the cheapest one of those.
Which, as it turned out, did not have a feature that I didn't realize I'd grown to love. "Spoken caller ID"
So, for example, when I'm in the bath it says "Call from Sarah" and I can, because I usually have my cell phone near my bath, text Sarah and say "hey, just in the bath, what's up?"
Or, I can ignore a call from "Unknown number" when I'm cozy on my couch. I don't know, I just didn't know it was something I liked until this new phone didn't have it.
The new phone lasted a couple of days before I really missed the talking phone and went and exchanged it.
So now I know, from my phone's "voice" who's calling when the phone's not right there next to me.
I know, C-Dawg thinks I'm crazy to care and you probably do too but sometimes it's the little things.
