This week I had an experience that I feel I want to share. I was at a training on teaching reading. During the training I had my cellphone off an in my purse. I did take 3 pictures after lunch using the phone. But then I put it away. I went to Starbucks after class and to do homework with a friend. I paid for coffee (leaving my purse open and on a chair while paying). After doing homework we went to dinner. After dinner, I went to call my husband and ….no cellphone. Immediately, because I had remembered my lack of attention to the purse, I assumed my phone had been stolen. I called my husband had first had him change all the passwords on my email and Facebook accounts. Next I had him call the phone company to alert them.
I felt protected because I had all my information on the cloud and I had changed all my passwords for accessing this information. Thus, I hadn’t lost anything except for my phone. I did alert my Facebook friends to the fact that the phone was stolen because I was still a little fearful that whomever had stolen the phone would post profanity on my account.
The next day when I went back to class, the teacher asked (around 10:30) if anyone had lost a phone. I stood up and hugged her…end of story.
What would you say the moral to this story is?
