Finding my way

I recently was invited to a house bridal party. Fun right? So I was excited to have the chance to hang out with some of our friends for the day and plugged my phone in before I went to bed the night before so it was all charged to help me with the directions tomorrow. 

Well in the morning when I was leaving Daryl asked if I knew the directions to get to the house? I gave him one of those looks and said that my phone was charged and I’m sure that I would be fine.

Everything was going well, the music was cranked and the sun was out and my shades were on. It was a good day.  And when I was driving for about an 1/2 of an hour I decided to turn my phone on. I mean I never go to this city that I was heading to and it was another hour away so I wanted to be prepared. And I was kinda worried even that I might be there too early.


So when I turned on my phone and gave the old signal ‘ok google’ to start my travel directions nothing happened. I mean nothing. 

Maybe I didn’t say it loud enough. ‘OK GOOGLE’ 


Holding the phone right in front of my face I tried it again. ‘O K   G O G G L E !! ‘ Nothing! 

So I pulled off to the side of the road and stared at my phone and yelled into it again. Now I’m not sure why yelling at your phone would make it work better, but I was for sure giving it my all. And I’m kinda guessing that anyone driving by was probably wondering just what in the world I was doing. 

Now fast forward for the next hour or so. I spent it on the side of the road trying to get my phone to give me directions. Well I knew that I did do a phone upgrade last night and it must have messed something up. So after yelling at it a couple more times and realizing that it just wasn’t going to hear me, and after shutting it off and on multiple times, I finally came to the conclusion that it wasn’t going to work and had the phone company reboot my phone. I had no other options and headed back on the road again.  

After about 10 minutes I was able to have my phone hear me again and just in time. I was just coming into the city and needed the help. 

And did I get to the party on time? Nope. I was an hour late! But they were just starting the party and my phone works again.  All is well with the world again.
