For a long time difficult child has wanted a smart phone or one of those really expensive phones. I bought her one the other day, a nice one from Verizon. Today she calls me from school and it dropped in the toilet. 99.00 deductible with the insurance. She has not had the phone two weeks. She calls me from the school office phone and ask me what she should do? This was her Christmas present. I gave it to her early because I was paying for the phone at that time and it was activated. I am totally po'd. I do not have a hundred dollars to throw around. I told her Merry Christmas and hung up on her. I just couldn't deal with anymore today. When we get home, she will begin to take pictures of some items from her room and post them for sale on Craigslist. Hopefully she can come up with half of this money and then I can wrap the stupid phone and put it under the tree. If not easy child will open her gifts and we will eat dinner and have fun otherwise. Ugh, I hate phones I have a 15.00 phone and it's worked fine for two years no problems.
