My Name is Sandi and I have a Land Line

ItIM000839.JPG is shameful, but I am seeking help. Although I have a smart phone, I want to keep my land line until I die, here’s why:

  • I’m blind as a bat: I have the biggest, brightest smart phone screen that was available 3 years ago when I bought it, but I still have to hold it at arms length in order to see anything. That makes it really hard to dial.

My land line has lighted buttons.

  • I’m losing my memory: Not on the smart phone, but I can never remember to take it with me. If I do remember, then I put it down somewhere and can’t remember where I put it. Then I have to use my land line to dial my cell so that I can find it anyway. Then I have to remember to charge the phone. No can do.

I can follow the cord and find my land line.

  • I’m getting senile: I figured out how to download a ringtone onto my smartphone. It plays Reasons by Earth Wind and Fire. When someone calls, I forget that it’s the phone and start dancing. Very embarrassing.

My land line rings (like a phone). I answer it (like Pavlov’s dog salivating.)

I know, I know that I need help, but I just can’t do it alone.

  1. We still have a landline, because our cell reception is still sketchy. I hate it, though. The only people who call are telemarketers and scammers. Now I have to run and catch the phone before my dad does, because I’m afraid he’s going to be taken in by one of those scammers. And he always answers the phone, even though I’ve told him not to. *sigh*
