If You Love Something, Let it Go...

There comes a time in every woman's life where she has to make a choice. Two days ago Laura Roecker went to the Verizon store and made hers.

It almost looks like you have a tiny pearl necklace on your finger ...

Loretta Nyhan said...

Nooooooo!

Laura, you were my last hold-out! What am I going to do?

Katie Anderson said...

This was awesome! Especially the fact that it went into the giant toy box where I can imagine Lydia carrying it around with her everywhere. ha!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Yep, my old cell phone meet with the same fate. Of course now the kids want a real one. Heck, so do I.

Laura Pauling said...

I'm sure the kids will have a blast pretending with it! Mine would. Great vlog.

Rhonda said...

LMAO! *ahem* I mean - I'm sincerely sorry for your loss and I'm sure that the phone has gone on to a better place in phone heaven.

Wait, you put it in your kid's toy box so it's going to endure endless amounts of abuse - you've sent it to cell phone hell! Clearly you should be sleeping with one eye open from now on because it will come back to exact revenge. *insert evil cell phone laugh here*

Katie Mills said...

why is it that all our old cell phones end up in the toy box? LOL too frickin funny! Lovered it. And I finally gave in to the iphone too a couple months ago. I don't even know where my old phone is now.

Kerri Cuev said...

OMG my old cell phone went in the same place! Must be a mom thing, lol. Welcome to the world of smartphones.

Carrie said...

hilarious. Congrats on your new smart phone. I am still holding out because I drop phones in snow banks.

Little Ms J said...

Hilarious!

Nicole Zoltack said...

lol you've succumbed to the smart phone! lol I'm still holding out, don't want to pay for two data plans (hubby has one). Paying for his data plan is the best money spent ever. He never wants on my computer anymore. Seriously-best money spent ever!

Valerie said...

Fabulous tribute to a trusted friend, as is my Samsung. You're a brave woman, and hopefully I'll have the chutzpah to upgrade mine before a) there's smoke coming out of it; b) it dies or disappears.

Sarah Enni said...

oh man this made me laugh SO HARD. as a proud owner of an iPhone i say WELCOME!

nkrell said...

I can totally relate to this!!! I have been elligible for a new phone for the past three years. I started writing *seriously* during the last two. I made a vow not to get a new phone, until I got an agent

Well, I now have an agent, but I still don't have a new phone. I NEED a new one. This old LG makes a ping whenever the battery gets low. When I text, it's like using an old rotary phone, but still, I hold onto it. Laura, how did you ever find the fortitude to move on?

nkrell said...

And I totally mispelled 'eligible'. I blame it on my old phone.

Christina Lee said...

Ahahahahaha! Okay now come over to my blog and see what can happen to pretty and smart iPhones (so weird we both posted about phones today)!

Have a good weekend!

Bethany Elizabeth said...

:) I shouldn't laugh like this, I'm in the public lounge, but oh my goodness. :)
Congrats on your new phone. :D

Gail said...

Why didn't the cell phone join the Regulators old phone buried in the woods by the railroad tracks???????!!!!!!

Marsha Sigman said...

They still offered support for that phone? lol

As a lifelong customer of Verizon I have to say the flip phone is dead, pocket/butt dialing is in but why the hell do I have to give up my Qwerty keyboard? I still likes it and I can have both.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

It's all so sad. Yesterday's cool phones has become today's 8-tracks.

Jemi Fraser said...

Hilarious! :) Technology is changing so quickly, it's hard to keep up!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

So funny! I just wish the price of data packages would come down... My teen has an Iphone and I pay for a data plan for her...I have a smart phone, but am too cheap to pay for another plan for myself. Maybe if I sell a book one day, I'll need a data plan. :)

Laura Marcella said...

I still have a hot pink motorola razr flip phone.
