Good ole technology

I picked Anna up from daycare today, and we hit Walgreens so I could pick up a photo for work. (Jack was sick, so Steve stayed home with him.) Once I got there, they told me that they had no record of the order.

Argh! I've done this with Walgreens before. They have this dumb system where you basically have to double confirm, and I forget the second one. I was so annoyed. It was snowing and cold out. I didn't want to have to come back. Then it occurred to me...I have an iphone! I love my iphone. It's so great. I'm great at text messaging now. And I can look something up online anytime I want.

I whipped out my phone and told the photo tech to hold on because I was going to resubmit the photo. It took a little bit (waiting for the Web pages to load), but I went online, logged in to my Walgreens account and then resent the photo. A few minutes later, they printed my photo and I was on my way.

I am so cool. Just like one of those young kids! :)

Jared got a radio from work, mildly shaped like an MP3 player. I actually, totally thought it was an Ipod. That is how completely technologically behind I am. Sigh.

Where are you? I need a little Hambone and Chili Bean update!
