Here’s why it might actually become mandatory…
Speaking of which… when we want to talk with the kids, or they with us, we’ll generally first send a text message “Good time for a call?” I don’t think we could have predicted 15 years ago that this would be the new normal, but it just makes sense: we might be busy, they might be busy, we might be eating dinner, they might be eating dinner, we might be out, they might be out, we might be cooking strawberry jam…
I know we’re not the only ones.
Connie is angry because Walt is asking her what took her so long, when the reason for the delay was an insipid text-messaging session they were both involved in?
Come on, I’m old, and even I know you don’t need wi-fi to post photos. Unless she has the world’s worst cell phone data plan.
For that matter, how does she not already know her boyfriend’s wi-fi password?
I think this is the first comic I’ve seen where the adult is explaining cell phones (or any other new technology) to an ignorant child.
Andréa cites not the comic itself, but the name on the window.
Maybe somebody here can figure this out…
My wife phoned me yesterday; and instead of a default ring, I heard… well, the wrong kind of Ring. I heard “Ride of the Valkyries.”
Which would be fine, except I never set that as the ring tone for calls from my wife’s phone. And I don’t have that music in my phone. Anywhere.
Nonetheless… Ride of the Valkyries
The next time she called me, I heard the usual default ring tone — so I have no idea what happened earlier. The most logical hypothesis at this moment is that this wasn’t a ring tone at all: at the very moment she called me, an army of Valkyries just happened to be flying past.
(She later decided, by the way, that she wants that music to be her ring tone on my phone — specifically, the Elmer Fudd cover version)
