If you are a long time listener, you may have heard Glenn mention he does not own a cell phone. In fact, he hasn’t for quite some time. On radio this morning, Glenn made a surprising announcement: He may be inclined to go out and buy a phone today. Why the sudden change of heart?
“You haven't had a phone for years,” Pat said upon hearing Glenn’s plan. “The only reason you are considering this is because the new iPhone 6 is cool.”
Glenn claimed that is not the case, although the timing is certainly suspicious.
“I carry [my iPad] around with me all the time. It's so big I can't put it in my back pocket,” Glenn explained. “Also, everyone I know text messages. I don't text message anybody. I'm practically snail mail. Can I get a stamp? Anyone have a stamp so I can send somebody a letter?”
When Glenn ran the idea of getting a phone past Tania last night, she agreed on one condition: She gets the iPhone 6 too.
“Here's what my wife says. I said, last night, ‘I’m thinking about getting a phone.’ She said, ‘Well, if you get one, I'll get the iPhone 6 too,’” Glenn said. “Wait a minute, what? What's that all about?”
“You can't have a 6 when she's got a 5,” Pat concluded.
“I'll take a one,” Glenn said. “I don’t care.”
