They are really just a pain.

OK.. You have a Samsung and your kid’s have Motorola’s and your wife has some kind of apple phone Ipod thing with windows …Now, they all lose or “misplace” their charger’s somewhere along the way. The kid’s are paticularly bad about this in thier travels to and from friends and such… Daddy… I lost my charger…Can we get another one?

Well, which one do you get? I, of course, don’t go to the local phone shop that provides my service… I go to that great evil empire wal mart because I’m poor. There you can get a phone charger  for considerably less..

It may or may not work!

That’s so incredible… Looking on the back of the package at the tiny print to see if your phone is listed… Better bring your reading glasses…And of course they have the chord jack hanging out of the package so you can “try it out”. Your phone may fit the jack – But STILL be the wrong one… This was my life just a few weeks ago…
It happens on a regular basis.

Oh I have extra chargers from back in the day…That’s for sure… But of course none of them fit. They must be for a different model number. Even if it’s the same brand..It’s just so freakin complicated.

Why can’t they just have one UNIVERSAL phone charger jack
… Like a USB or an ethernet jack… But that would just be to easy for society wouldn’t it?

It’s little things that could make my world so much better…
But this ain’t my world… It’s the devils right? No wonder it’s such a mess…

This post is from Sept 2008. Chargers have changed but they are still a major pain.
