I sometimes car pool to work with my sister. Typically I’m like an old bag lady so I have a tote and a purse and another tote and a makeup bag and a plastic bag…yeah, I carry around a lot of rubbish.
Anyway, when I car pool with my sister I typically toss everything in the back seat and that includes my purse. I’m not one of those people that constantly has to have my iPhone in my hand. It’s not a third appendage for me and I’m ok if I don’t have it attached to my hand 24/7 365. If it happens to be out of my hand for a few hours I don’t break out into a cold sweat and hyperventilate. I actually feel more relaxed when I don’t have it in my hand because I don’t feel inclined to reply to the dozens and dozens of work e-mails or crazy amount of texts my friends send me, etc…I can just breath easier.
Moral of the story is when I toss my purse in the back seat it’s likely my phone is in my bag and I won’t remove it until the end of my work day if I’m in my office and not out and about. If I do have to make a call my sister’s phone is typically handy as she keeps it in a compartment by her hand while she’s driving.
But she HATES when I’m using her phone and I can’t blame her. Why? Because she’s a minimal makeup girl. She doesn’t use foundation and she’s more a natural, minimalist with a little blush, mascara, and go. Where as I’m the complete face girl. So whenever I use her phone my makeup smears off on it and I get the screen all smeared and disgusting. Come on, admit it, you know your phones are looking all kinds of gross too!
