Cell phone interruptus

No, I’m on the train right now. Did you see the weather report for the pageant? I need to be careful! I don’t want to be a sunburned beauty queen!

ZAP.

Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep.

Hello? I don’t know it just went dead. I'll DIE if I can't use my ph...

ZAP.

Hello? HELLO?!

She had an iPhone. The service for AT&T is so lousy that they live on the threshold of dropping a call normally. It doesn’t take much to push them over the edge. It's so easy that it takes all the sport out of it. It’s like tripping an old lady who's using a walker.

wow, we're just considering switching mobile providers. I did not realize this about ATT. Right now we have Sprint and TMobile. Hardly ever have a dropped call on these networks... what do you use?

Point: There's some sorcery going on here that I don't think you're aware of. I employed my portable cell phone jammer. It doens't matter who her carrier was. Her call was loud and annoying so I put a stop to it. Please click on The Jammer Chronicles label for more mischief.

Always love the jammer chronicles, but Poindexter's comment was hilarious! You know, in a naive, uninitiated kind of way.

I want one.

What's it called when you're embarrassed for someone else? My partner speaks so loudly on the phone everywhere. They probably don't notice here in Spain (worst noise pollution ratings in Europe), but I do! And it kills me...yesterday we were at the vet's and blah blah blah...how can I get hold of one?

How ironic, I was just thinking the other day that there's nothing worse than a sunburned beauty queen.

Nothing.

Daisy: Don't forget to design a logo as well.

Rob: I'd like to teach the world to jam.

Savannah: The Jammer Chronicles are entertaining and worth your time. I think.

PG: They are manufactured in Hong Kong and illegal in most municipalities. Let your conscience be your guide.

Map: And the fun never wears off! It never gets old!

Nurse: Actually, do you know what's worse? A beauty queen who can't use her cell phone.

Ellie: Somewhat? Another of your witty sarcasms, no doubt.

Hey Cap'n, promise us all - don't ever use your powers for good. That would suck.

That reminds me that I missed the last episode of Toddlers and Tiaras.

I LOVE CELL PHONE JAMMER STORIES.

That is all.
