Losing your cell phone
Have you ever lost your cell phone? My daugther has, several times, as have some of my friends. What do you do when that happens. Well, a friend called her cell phone, and the person that answered it said he would return it after he had finished with his call, but that is another story. My daughter tried calling it, but got no answer, so we had no idea where it had gone. (She had tried it before when the phone was simply in the car, and we could hear it ringing and find it that way).
We got a call, this morning, from the person that had it. How do you think people call you if you don’t usually have your home number on the phone (although some people do)? I heard this first years ago, but what most people do is they look through the address book for an entry called "Mom", and call that number, as "Mom" will usually know where the person who lost the phone is.
And sure enough, that was how we got the phone call. Someone had called "Mom" to ask if we had lost a phone, which we had.
Made me wonder if people whose mothers have died ever get their phone back when they lose it?
