I lost my new Iphone. I was stressed out, running around the house cleaning like the comic relief in a Shakespeare play. I left the cell on the hood of my car and 30 minutes later when I was trying to leave the house I couldn't find it. I checked pretty much everywhere except the top of my car. It was just about the worst place to leave it. There goes $500 to buy myself a new one. There is a GPS application you can download to help you find your phone in such a situation. I didn't know about that service. But even if I did, I might not have gotten around to installing it. Just like I haven't purchased AAA Roadside Assistance, or copied and buried a key outside my house, or found a very reliable computer back up system.
Life is so complex anymore. Who has time to crash proof their life? And eat healthy and have fun, and make a difference?
All the more reason we should be living in urban tribes. Share the burden. Let one person sign everyone up for AAA. Let one person clean the house and the other bury the backyard key.
I'll fork over the $500 for another cell phone.
