I'm an Putz - Like an iPutz

That's right. A PUTZ! My cell bill came out today, right after my last blog post — and obviously I used some of the data features of the iPhone when I wasn't around wifi. Otherwise, I would have had $100 DOLLARS IN CHARGES on my bill. So I called AT&T, fessed up, and they agreed to wipe the charges if I wanted the $20 data plan. Guess who's the proud new owner of an iPhone with a data plan?

By the way, I was paying $5 for 200 text messages on my previous phone. The iPhone $20 data plan includes 200 text messages. So really, our plan is going up $15. But that's three meals at McDonalds.

I called my wife, told her what happened, cried a little, then told her I'll start bring my lunch to the office — but only three times a month.

God, please help me be a good steward of Your resources. I want to use things to reach people for You. If this iPhone doesn't help me reach people for Christ, then make it drop in the toilet. I'm being honest God. Drop it.

    My wife has found numerous ways to damage/destroy cellphones, including dropping it in the toilet. So if you feel God is leading you to drop it in the toilet and you are having trouble being faithful, mail it to my wife.

    Well, that cured my jealousy right away! Thanks, Bryan!

    Maybe your fall back destruction prayer should be geared more towards something that destroys the phone, but your sim card is still good.

    I'm just saying...
