No that was sticky buttons, not sticky buns. Geesh! You people amaze me with your dirty minds!
We’ve been struggling with our cordless phone for the last few months. No scratch that – it’s had a few problems for about a year now.
It started with us no longer being able to turn the ringer off – that was about a year ago. I don’t know about you, but when you work shift work there are times that you just don’t want the phone to ring, because, of course, if it does it’s usually just after you’ve managed to fall asleep. Ok, well, then, if we don’t want this phone to ring I guess we’ll just unplug it.
Then some of the buttons started to stick every now and then. Often the numbers 6 and 9. It wasn’t too bad at first but over the last couple of months it’s gotten worse and worse. On Tuesday it was so bad that I had to use my cellphone to check our home phone messages because I’d already tried to put in our password 7 times on our cordless phone without it working. The buttons either weren’t working or when I finally succeeded they put in two or three of the number I’d been trying to punch in.
I’ve got a cordless phone that can be used to answer calls but forget dialing most numbers. It doesn’t work half the time. Is there an orphanage or retirement home for phones like this? I think I need to send ours there.
So on Tuesday amongst the many other things that I did on Tuesday we went phone shopping. We ended up getting a Motorola cordless phone. One of those ones that has two extra handsets. We only have TWO phone jack in our house. Yeah, we should have had more put in when we got the house but I guess we figured two would be ok.
Our tiny house now has 5 working phones! A corded phone in our bedroom, a cordless in the living room / dining room – both of those use the phone jacks, a handset in the kitchen, and the other extra handset is in one of our spare rooms upstairs right now but I’d like to move it to the basement ’cause if we do we’ll have all the floors covered. The fifth phone is the cell phone.
No more sticky buttons! The only problem now is that if we don’t want the ringer to wake us up we have even more phones to silence. I’m sure there will be times that we’ll forget one or two of them. *groan*
