Clueless Momma

I put up a post many moons ago about how I hate reading manuals – hated then and still hate now. How lar, to fall in love with something so dry like the Kalahari Desert and to read and enjoy as if it is the most thrilling fiction that ever reached the bookshelves. **sighs**

You see, my old faithful of a handphone died on me two weeks back and I just went to the shops and got myself a new unit. Ya, new means new problems and new headache and new heartache for me and of course, with my lack of affinity for reading manuals, the headache can turn into migraine. This new unit, according to my no. 2 is pretty basic only; it comes with the usual camera with video recording, voice/sound recording, mp3, speaker, bluetooth (whatever this is), radio (oh, got radio jugak) and of course lar, I can make and receive calls and can send and receive messages. Very basic, right?

Err….for me, it’s a kinda of new learning process altogether. Of the above listed features, I only know how to use a few and for the other few, I practically have to hand the phone over to whoever is next to me to help me sort it out. Some of my blogger friends would have noticed this. Please don’t laugh at me lar, ok?

And past few days, I noticed that sms’es reached the phone without me realizing it. How? Why? I thought there is a default message notification tone but of late, I don’t seem to hear a buzz or anything…mmmm…the sms must have came in when I was at someplace noisy or the phone must have dropped very deep down my big bag and I didn’t hear a thing. So, I badgered no. 2 to put in something a tad louder and he let me sampled some ‘buzzes’ which I seriously find annoying…no, not this one…, dowan this one….no, this one tak sedap. Throwing his arms in exasperation, he then asked, “Momma, tell me what is it you want?”

Me : Some catchy music can ar?

Son : Which one?

Me : Err…catch-catchy one lor?

Son : **roll eyes** Who’s the singer and what’s the name of the song?

Me : There, that one we heard at the hair salon the other day.


Son : Aiyoh…Momma…that was like a month ago lar. How to remember?

Me : **putting finger to mouth** Okie, we do lidat lar.

You play the songs you have on your pc and let me choose lor.

Son : **turns on his media player**

After like 5 minutes or so with me standing next to him and asking him to skip this song and that and then I went. “Ah, this one, this one.” As no.2 was in a hurry to go out, he told me he will work on the phone for me when he comes back later.

I forgot completely about it and this morning, I heard a tune coming from my phone and I just picked it up, pressed the ‘Answer’ button and in my sweetest voice said, “Hulllooooo…, hulllo…hulllo…” Aikssss! Why no sound one???

No. 2 who was standing nearby, was like rolling in uncontrollable laughter “kakaka….aiyoh, Momma, that one your sms tone lar…kakakakaka…You asked me to put in for you mar, the song ‘Buttons’…kakakaka”

It took like a good 10 seconds for me to catch my sheer cluelessness and I also burst out laughing.

KAKAKAKAKA.....KAKKAKAKA.... Adoi, gua ni kelakar betul.

Wah... so canggih your phone!

Rarely do the elder generation own better phones compared to the youngsters. Guess they prefer to do without the headache of Bluetooth and what not. =P

Don worry, 'nya...don't we all learn by trial and error??? If not successful, try and try again!! That's why they say! Best to marry teachers: they make you do it again and again and again till u get it right. Don't marry bus drivers: they always say, "Cepat! Cepat masuk!....Cepat! Cepat keluar!!!" LOL!!!

LOL, a full song for an SMS? Not surprising you mistake it for a call.
  At 9:30 AM Blogger Will said:
that's the reason why i never put long long tone for SMSes... can be very confusing :P
Far from clueless, I think you're pretty cool =)

I just use the normal ring tone for me phone - anything else would be too distracting.

  At 6:35 PM Blogger famil said:
"The Bluetooth Protocol, named after the Viking Crusader Harald Bluetooth who unified Denmark and Norway in the tenth century, is a wireless technology that uses low-power, short-range radio frequencies to communicate between two or more devices, Bluetooth uses 2.45GHz." - Data Communications & Computer Networks: A Business User's Approach By Curt M. White

My phone also dont have bluetooth :p
  At 6:37 PM Blogger famil said:
Ericsson was the first to develop that protocol. So, its natural for them to name it after their national hero.

Imagine if iBerhad develop. SemiValue Tooth?
thanks so much for the info.
and really, your mind works fast...semivaluetooth, pulak.
