My phone has decided that now is a good time to start acting up. It’s as though it remembers that something similar happened right around this time last year, and it’s saying, “Hey! At least I’m consistent!”
But the annoyance has taught me one thing: I really need to clean out my address book.
Much the same way as I do with Facebook, once I have your number, I don’t generally delete it. This means I have several numbers for sorority sisters that I never use, and those for high school classmates that I haven’t spoken to in years. But in the back of my head I’m always thinking, well, I shouldn’t delete it, because what if I ever actually need the numbers for all my old physics study buddies? You just never know.
That said, there are probably some numbers that should go.
The issue with my phone now is that certain keys stick – G in particular. And when G gets held down, it immediately accesses all my G contacts, and all it would take is for the Send key to get stuck, too, and I’d be calling someone I really didn’t want to talk to.
Because the first three of my Gs are:
1) A guy I met at the bar, with a question mark next to his name because I couldn’t really remember what he’d told me
2) Another guy I met through a friend, who proceeded to hit on me – even after I’d met his girlfriend
3) The college ex-boyfriend, who is now married
As you can guess, as soon as that new phone comes in (*fingers crossed* today!) I’ll be doing a little address book spring cleaning.
Because, unlike my old physics friends, I can’t think of any scenario in which I’d need – or want – to call any of these gentlemen.
