The joy I had once I met you and held you in my hands was and is still indescribable. It was short lived though as the whole year and a half you showed me that you not like how others paint you to be. You are not perfect. That is the first lesson I learnt from you.
You don’t want people to depend on you for everything. I learnt this the hard way, I used you for calls, sms’, BBMs, whatsapp and other social networks but once you freeze to tell me you had enough, I did not understand.
I expected you to fulfil your job of being a “smart phone”. I remember sometime back I went to meet a blind date then my you froze before I could reach the mall I didn’t know where to find my date. I was pissed but maybe it was for the best (sour grapes).
You showed me that you are not that smart but people can use you smarter if they were open minded like you. I mean you had many applications but what most of us downloaded were in the same category “chat”. This made me and others (I hope) to chat with our spouses on different social networks at the same damn time. Smart? I think not, now.
You also helped with my anger management, your battery life used to piss the hell out of me but I was getting used to it. You helped me to stay calm even in other situations where I have no choice but to be patient like waiting for a taxi to my hometown.
The last lesson I am still learning now even after losing you is that you were very jealous of me, you don’t want to share our time with others. I see that in other users of you. I am glad I am free from you but I miss my R27/pm Cell C BIS and that important spell check.
I know you’ve just introduced you new sizzling hot sister BBZ10 but I’m sorry I don’t want to go through the above mentioned lessons again. I have learnt my lesson that is why I’m considering Android or IOS phones.
Goodbye My Drama Queen
