Blue Teeth

So I got a wireless hands free device to work with my Motorola cell phone. What I bought was a Motorola and it seemed like it should work fine. Only it didn't. It creates an echo, it's hard for others to hear me and if they can hear they can't seem to understand.

I have to press it into my ear with one hand so that I can hear the people on the other side, and I have to cup that hand so that my voice is directed to the microphone in the piece of crap device. Which has me wondering, "If I have to hold my hand up here all the time anyway, why don't I just use the freakin phone?"

So the other day a guy I work with was walking out of his building. He clipped on a bluetooth and I asked him about it. "I push a button and it is just like I am on the phone. I push another button and it shuts off and I never think about it. I can't imagine driving without it."

Son of a BITCH I hate hearing that!! That means my amazing Internet buy sucks ass! I tried to save a little face and told him I got a Motorola off an electronics web site (I left out it was called Amazing Third World Electronics) and was surprised it did not perform better.

I was met with a blank stare, like he was thinking of all the things he would rather be talking about than my Motorola knock off Bluetooth. Then he shrugged his shoulders and walked away, saying over his shoulder as he disappeared around the corner, "I don't know about that. I went to Radio Shack and bought the cheapest thing they had."

So that's what I did tonight. I have let it charge all through the Green Bay game. Now it's too late to call. Damnit I'm like a kid at Christmas!!

My bluetooth is Motorola and I love it. My in-laws bought it for Jared for Christmas. Best Buy I think.

Hey my new little thingy seems to work pretty good! Nobody could tell I was on one all day. I suspect I got a bad Motorola. The new one is something that starts with the letter V and has other letters that are too small to read without glasses that are in the other room. I like hands free. Now I have the freedom to view your Flicker page!
