One day I'll learn....

OK, this post is just about something stupid. :) I bought a cell phone car charger a while back, but I gave it to Jeff since he is gone from home a lot and needs it more than I do. Since his back injury he, of course, has not been using it. So, it is now in my car since I often forget to charge my phone. When I bought it, I got the one with a retractable cord so it would be more neat when trying to store it. There is a button on the side of the main part that, when pushed, retracts the cord very quickly.

When I plug it into the lighter slot in my car, I always have to move it around so that it gets connected somehow to whatever metal piece is in there - and it will finally start charging. While moving it around, I hold my phone in my other hand (while parked of course!) and watch it to see when it starts charging. EVERY time - I mean, every single time I have done this - I am looking at my phone, I start moving the charger around in the slot, and I press that little button to retract the cord. It scares the crap out of me every time (the zip noise) and I drop the phone. You would think that after a few times I would realize it and pay attention. Maybe now that I have written about it I will remember. :)

Just thought I would share that with you all so you can have a laugh at my expense (instead of Jeff's, heehee). :)

LOL - see that's what you get when you don't use your own name! I *believe* I know who the 1st (and 3rd) anonymous is, but I have no clue about the 2nd one!

I thought you were going to say that you always forget that you have to turn the car on for the phone to start charging. I have done that, gotten all annoyed that the car charger is plugged in correctly but it's not charging just to realize I need to start the stupid car first.
