Find your lost phone!
Kay, so stupid me, Saturday morning, got home from garage saleing (probably the last Saturday of the season!) to find that my phone was nowhere in sight. I searched high and low, but to no avail. A sinking feeling started in my belly. What if I left it on some table at some house while sifting through their junk?
And... we turned off our landline months ago because we never use it, so I couldn't try to call it.
AND my phone was on it's last bar, so if I didn't find it in the next few hours, all hope was lost, because no one would hear it ring.
In my despair, I lamented my frustration on twitter.
Moments later, I had a DM tweet from Lynnette, offering to call me. My first thought was, um, no. I have a little too much pride for that.
Then I realized, hang pride, I'd just announced my stupidity to all of twitter- and facebook-ospheres. And... I'd been praying for God to help me find it. Maybe he chose to use twitter?
So I DMed my number to Lynnette, sent my daughter out to the car to listen while I listened in the house.
Two minutes later, Karalynn runs inside. "I FOUND IT! I FOUND IT! And someone from, um, Washington? tried to call"
It had fallen inside a bag that I'd looked UNDER but not in.
I'd just like to take this moment to say... THANK YOU... to Lynnette, for helping this poor twit out! You're a lifesaver!
*side note* Just thinking about how funny it would have been if I HAD left it at a garage sale, and someone from there had answered it, and Lynnette would have been like, "Um, yeah, this lady on Twitter said she lost her phone, so I offered to call it for her. Can I have your address so she can come and get it?"
That would have been TOTALLY classic.
Thankfully, it didn't come to that.
