The Samsung Lame

“Mom, do you have any idea how embarrassing my life is? Don’t you know that in 5th & 6th grade kids are identified by their cell phones? And I’m stuck with Daddy’s stupid old flip phone. I’ve got a Samsung Lame…that means I’m lame. Please, please, please let me get a new phone.” Anna-11 


A mother's plight to find the funny in the frustrating and save her sanity.

    I’m hysterical – Funniest one yet!


  2. Tom serenaded her with this song all weekend. Sadly, she didn’t find it as funny as we did. 😉

      She’s definitely going to rule the world so remember that you’re going to be old someday. I’d hate to think that the only thing that separates you from a nice cushy house and the county nursing home will be two words “Samsung Lame.” By the way, I’m still laughing!

    If I can live through my friends calling my cheap Zayres or Meijer gym shoes “buddies”, then your kids can live without the latest technology.

    LOL … heard stuff like that all the time when Darling Daughter was growing up. She usually stopped (though the pouting didn’t) when I told her I’d be happy to take her to get (whatever the cool thing of the week was) one, but that she’d be paying for it. 😀


  5. “Here, SIG Jr. – take this old tin cans, tie a string between ’em, and have a nice day.”
    It’s a good thing I’m not a father.
    My kids would HATE me.

    It’s official- you and Tom are the worst parents ever. You should have seen the cell phone I had when I was eleven. Oh right, you couldn’t. Because cell phones didn’t exist.


  7. Lenore Diane says:

    I need to print this for reference. I am anti-cell phones for kids (sorry readers), and I need to have this reference, so my boys know they are not the only kids with either no cell phone or a lame cell phone. My boys wear socks and sandals (at the same time). As a result, they’ll have other things to be concerned about more than cell phones. (smile)

    Having a Smith’s song made this post more awesome. Just so you know. ~ Lenore


    • Thanks Lenore. I knew I liked you. Knowing you also like The Smiths is just icing on the top. 😉
      When Anna is finished with her Samsung Lame, I’ll pack it up and send it to your boys. They can stick it in their socks and start a new trend.

    Better than the tin cans, give her a couple old WW2 field phones. 10 pounds a piece, plus batteries, plus the wire between them. State of the art in 1937! (I only mention these because, if Anna challenges you to “put your money where your mouth is”, I could have a pair plus some wire sent to you in about 3 days. Trust me, you DON’T want to pay overnight rates! 😀 )

    Ahh, The Smiths! Can’t get better than that.

    Feel free to use the line my mom always used on me when I was that age: when you pay for it, you can get it. Start saving your pennies. (I guess now it would be dollars.)


    • Jacquelin, thanks for sharing your mom’s quote…I like it. I hope she’s feeling better.

      I’m happy to hear you share my affection for The Smiths. Brings me back to the 80’s. Maybe I’ll add a little Depeche Mode or The Cure to my next post. 😉


  10. I am so happy my kids are in their 30s and they can buy their own phones with their own money and spend a lot of time doing things on them that I can’t comprehend.


  11. richripley says:

    In your daughters defense…she did say “please” three times. Try getting that from a teenager. 🙂


  12. Hahaha, Okay then bye bye Samsung Lame, hello quarters! Good luck finding a payphone kid, oh and you don’t just get quarters for your charming good looks, wit,and charm, you get some extra chores to earn them!!!


  13. I want to take apart a cell phone and put it inside an old rotary phone that the kids would have to carry around with them. I just can’t seem to find an old rotary phone.


  14. Tony McGurk says:

    I have a 5 year old flip phone & I like it. I guess I’m lame too. Lame & old. I was on the train once & a kid pointed to me & said to his Dad; “Hey look an old guy with a mobile phone, cool!!!”


Let Nancy know what you think...
