I recently had to replace my ancient phone because Nina
(that’s her, with her ever-present rooster friend) chewed up my charger, and they don’t seem to be making chargers anymore for my circa-2004 dinosaur:
I went to the AT&T store to get a new phone and figured I’d sign up for two years of their usual highway robbery in exchange for a free phone. Hm, it seems the cheapest decent phone I could find was $70 after all the mail-in rebates and bizness. I asked the sales guy what the deal was, and his brilliant response? “Plastic has become a lot more expensive lately.” Um, SERIOUSLY?
