Things have been a little slow this week over here on the Dirt Candy blog, mostly because of crime. A bunch of kids came into the restaurant on Tuesday, selling candy to raise money for their basketball team. I didn’t have any money for them and so as they left, when none of us were looking, they stole my cell phone and my intern, AJ’s, cell phone. Police were called, etc, but I happen to have an idiotPhone and not only are they not insured (Apple won’t insure them) but it’s a major pain in the butt to get a new one because AT&T and Apple don’t work very nicely together. It turns out I qualify to buy a new idiotPhone for a couple of hundred bucks if I wait a week rather than buy an old iPhone for $499 now. So at the moment I’ve got none of my contacts, I’m missing emails and I have a strange, weird, temporary phone that smells funny.
C’mon, McGruff. More crime fighting and
less kid hugging.
