QUOTE FOR THE DAY

I was having a phone chat  with a very happy sounding lady called Kelly in the  telephone accounts department.  A couple of messages had attracted a surcharge as picture messages and I could not understand why. There was not a modicum of a picture in sight in either one, not even an emoticon.  I read the two messages to her and counted the digits in one of the them – fifty-five, (160 is the text limit).   Kelly just couldn’t understand it… I checked my settings, all okay there.

As I still had the messages and could account for what they were, she agreed a refund to my account, then added with a sigh;

I hate smart phones, they’re getting too smart for me!”

WHAT HAS CHANGED?

“THE MOST PATIENT PEOPLE GROW WEARY AT LAST WITH BEING CONTINUALLY WETTED WITH RAIN; EXCEPT, OF COURSE, IN THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS, WHERE THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH FINE INTERVALS TO POINT THE DIFFERENCE.”
