Sometimes lo-tech really IS a girl's BF!

Recently our DS's girlfriend had to walk home from the airport (several miles!) because her cel phone died! She could't remember anyone's phone number to call for pickup or help. She was completely used to auto-dialing everyone from her "smart phone." By the time she reached home with 2 pieces of luggage, she had a broken wheel on one bag and a broken handle on the other. She was also exhausted, and kicking herself for not having written down emergency numbers in her wallet or purse, of course!!! When I heard this story, I ordered her a purse-size address book from Amazon. She was very surprised they still made something so "old-fashioned!" I asked my DS what he would do if his phone died or got lost. He said, "I still remember your landline, Mom." Sometimes I worry about the future generation!
