Still, I resisted the shiny smarties. I saw too many of my friends tearing their hair out trying to master the dang things. And, after all, who needed one?
My phone could:
- make calls
- receive calls
- send texts
- receive texts
- record voice mail
Well, I thought, if I had a smart phone, I could get one with a camera, and then I wouldn't have the weight of a cell phone AND a camera.
Then I went to an event and somebody asked me if I took plastic. The person next to me said, "I do." She whipped out her smart phone, plugged a little square piece of electronics into it, and BOOM took plastic. Fortunately, this person was a friend, and took the sale for me and gave me the money for it.
Now I have a smart phone. On the advice of my friend, I opened a separate bank account just for those plastic transactions. Then I went to Square, Inc. and requested a FREE square credit card reader, which just came.
And the next time I'm selling books and somebody asks me if I take plastic, I can say, "I sure do!"
Ha ha ha ho hooooo!
