Incommunicado

I lost my cellphone in San Antonio on Sunday.

If you find it, please call me.

No, wait, that won’t work. Since I don’t have a phone anymore. And you won’t find it anyway.

I was pretty upset about losing my phone already, but then I tried calling my cellphone twice from my hotel room, and got the voicemail. Realizing how utterly stupid that was, I read the fine print and saw that each time I did that it cost $7.54.

Somehow that made me more upset than actually losing my cellphone.

Not really, but it did make me upset.
