No fights over the BB yet, but many fights over My Q use in the past. Even threats to throw my Q in the trash while he was using his BB. Now that I've made the switch we will see if the fights start all over again. From what I've read and heard these things can be addictive. So far I can't put it down except to bathe. Any idea where I can get a waterproof cover for my BB?
Not really a fight...more like an ultimatum. When I called my husband and told him that I picked up a BB Pearl--the other end of the phone was dead silence. His only reply was---I'd prefer to never Hear it, or See it.
I try to be good about keeping it low on his radar. But, it was great last week when we were making a GIANT purchase at Costco and I was able to easily login to our bank's website to transfer cash from one account to another (so we could buy the item). He was somewhat appreciative of it's usefulness.
Well, I wouldn't call it a fight... but yeah, my wife has gotten annoyed and told me to put it away. And the in-laws kept calling me a "Crackberry wh***" when they visited this weekend for Christmas...
Yea, I have a fight almost every morning because my BB rings to wake me at 5:50am during the week and my wife isn't a morning person even though we both need to be up at the same time. I'm glad I charge my phone on my side of the bed or i wouldn't have it anymore to be on this site :-(
In short - YES. My wife is a type A personality and so am I. To say that I am addicted to my Crackberry would be an understatement. Although she doesn't "get" my obsession with my crackberry, she does however enable my addictions to a point. Note I said to a point.
One night I wrapped up a phone call to China, was emailing Mexico, texting my wife (who was upstairs) and decided it was time to go to bed. My wife asked that I leave the phone downstairs and just get some rest. I told her no one would ever call in the middles of the night. At 2 AM asleep a customer from Malaysia called and woke everyone in the house up . That morning I awoke to a message of "turn off or sleep on the couch tonight". We worked out a compromise and I now have a night mode, so as I help out with the kids at night I can respond to emails. But the ringer is off and I don't take calls at night. (Oddly enough I sleep much better.)
Funny - Now that I typed up this story even I am mad at myself for being a crackberry addict, but of course I can't stop it.
