To say that my husband is an erudite tech is an understatement. He is a lurker (yes, there is a name for what he is) in all of the technology forums. He just knows everything that is going on in the tech industry. He would be able to tell you on any given day whether the Comcast network was down in a certain town in a certain state. He’s just like that.
Well, just like all other tech junkies out there, he has been waiting for the new Motorola Droid to come out forever. I swear the thing turns him on more than I do. He finally got it on Monday (he ordered it on Friday but had it shipped to his office address so that he could actually get other stuff done over the weekend). Well, the darn thing has a GPS that is the latest thing (see a demo of it here), and I’m just jealous of the attention he has been giving a stupid device, so there is a certain level of animosity between me and the Droid. Yesterday I must have said “I hate the Droid” a billion times, and kept telling him to shut the thing up while I drove.
I got home from work before my husband did today. He called me and asked me if I’d like to go to Home Depot with him to buy some stuff. I said sure, and then heard the GPS’s voice in the background. I yelled out “IS THAT YOUR GPS???” to which he responded quickly and nervously “NO!….. IT’S MY GIRLFRIEND!”
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! Oh, man, never a dull moment with this one.
