The Demented Man I Married

Ok, we do have photos from the Roman Holiday, but they are currently uploaded on the main computer that is being used by our Calculus student today. There are some wonderful photos taken by Stat Boy and Oleander, and hopefully I can post those tomorrow.

In the meantime, I have an example for my dear readers that will illustrate the disturbing sense of humor Wingnut has, and exactly what I've had to live with for nearly 20 years now.

On my way to the airport to pick up our weary travelers, I received a text message from my dear husband, that I did not answer, as I was driving and I won't answer texts while I'm driving. Several minutes later my iPhone began to ping and when I glanced at it I read, "The onboard diagnostics has detected a problem with your device. All data will be deleted and your device will shut down. Thank you."

We own a new Toyota that has all the wonderful bells and whistles, including bluetooth and iPhone compatibility, so I immediately believed it was the car's computer that was going to erase my data and destroy my phone. I unplugged my phone in a panic, but nothing further happened. Phew!

It wasn't until the pilgrims had been home for several hours that I mentioned the strange message I'd received to Wingnut. The evil man began to smirk. I hate that smirk. He had used his iPhone and an application called "Find My iPhone" to send me that message as his little joke. Oh, how they laughed at my stupidity.

The next time I was out alone in the Toyota, the phone pinged and the message read, "The onboard diagnostics has determined there is nothing wrong with your device. Have a nice day."

Is there a place in Hell for evil practical jokers?

I think you need to get revenge in a very clever way (is that bad?).

Stories like these make me happy I married a technologically deficient husband! But he has his ways too :)

Hopefully not a place in Hell, but perhaps the "cheap seats" in Heaven!
What a stinker.

Hey Mau,

Nothing compared to some of the painful practical jokes you played on me when we were kids...God has been slow roasting His revenge (for the past 20 years) on your deplorable behavior when we were young!!!! No sympathy from YourBro!!!!
