Okay, never mind answering. Whenever I ask that question, the answer is always “No!” Last night I was sitting here minding my own business and tried to post something. Niet, nada, no can do, sweetie…..wifi was out. I checked the router, unplugged, etc, you all know the routine, and Internet just kept blinking red. I’ve decided that after ten o’clock when all is supposed to be quiet in apartment complex land, that without wifi I am dead in the water. Why not use your cel phone, you ask politely?
Because my fairly new phone, okay I bought a refurbished one on Amazon, was dead. I saw it going under so plugged it in and it just gave up the ghost. So basically without either device I am stranded. I have no recourse except to go across the hall and wake up neighbors if I need help. Which let’s face it, would not work, unless I crawled over there…I am in a wc and the only reason I would really need help was if for some odd reason I fell and couldn’t get up, which I can’t. Go ahead, take a respite from this blog and laugh! I don’t mind. I AM one of those “help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” people. I hate to admit that, but it is true.
Back to the problem… I made two mistakes yesterday. Not ordering a new cord and battery for my phone and two, clicking on “update” for WP. I don’t seem to learn. I am an old dog and I don’t like new tricks. Now I have to go through someone else’s post to get to my site, until WP decides to accept me with a user name and password I’ve had for over a year. And yes, wifi came back on this morning at five. Notice how all hell breaks loose on the weekend when no offices are open for assistance? Well that’s been my experience. Kids never get ill during the week, accidents never happen then either…right?
My family is out of town. My daughter brought me an “old reliable” phone, not a smart phone, in case I need to call for help, and a different cord to charge my dead (smart phone – I use the term loosely, or is it the user that is not smart?) phone. If all else fails I can use “old reliable” to call my grandson who’s always available. . .the oldest one, the firefighter.
One more thing, have you ever had problems trying to register or reregister any device on the net? Thought not, it IS just me after all. (Sigh)
I added the pretty bird so you’d at least have something nice to look at.
