Give a Hill Billy a little technology and what do you get?

Something to laugh about!  Hahahahaha!
Dickidoo has a bachelor's degree in business management.  He didn't get it from Sally Struthers in exchange for a doughnut, he actually had to earn it.  He has a laptop and he knows how to use it!  He's the fastest 2-finger typist I know.  And see there clipped on to his waist... its a cell phone.  You can't see the other one but he has two cell phones... one for the family, and one for work.  Yesterday I asked him for the number to his work phone so our son Gabe would have another option if he ever needed to get in touch with us.  And so I waited, and waited, and waited for Dickidoo as he poked around on his fancy schmancy government cell phone trying to figure out what his number was.  When it became too much for me to bear I suggested that he just call his other cell phone from his work phone and he could copy the number down when it appeared in the incoming call screen. 

So now I'm wondering how he gives people at work his number,  "Huh... I don't quite know my number yet so if you give me your number I can call you and you can just save my phone number that way..."   Maybe I should pin it to his shirt like I did with the kids when they first started school and needed to memorize their phone number.  "Hi, my name is Dickidoo, I live here and this is my phone number"

One of the neat things about being married for as long as we have been is that sometimes we don't even need to speak because we know what the other is thinking.  Dickidoo is always telling me to 'Shut up!' even when I don't say a word!  Last night was one of those times.  Unfortunately he doesn't always specify how long I should shut up for.  Silly man should have known I would repeat the story here!  Hehehehehe!

in all honesty I have wondered many a time, what is more important? a degree or common sense??  I know the answer is somewhere in between, but I rarely see that!

My "better half" is telling me that you are picking on Dickidoo! Of course this is from a man who has lost his wallet (2x)car/house keys/paycheck/and various other sundry items...all in one week.  I think it's a man thing.  Sandi

Um, this is embarrassing, but I don't know our cell phone number, either. I just give it to the girls to call ME when they go somewhere.

LOL
I don't know my cell phone number.  I never call myself.  
Someone asked for my number, and I had to ask one of the monkeys to write it down for me.
I'm blaming mine on blondeness, but I don't think that one will work for Dickidoo.
