Do you have all the important phone numbers in your phone’s contacts memorized?
Have you ever forgotten your phone or it ran out of juice and you needed to call someone but didn’t know their number? Or anyone else’s number?
This happened to my husband a while back. He had truck trouble on his way to work but didn’t have his phone. He was able to get his truck to a store parking lot and went inside to call me. But … he didn’t know the number. He finally remembered our daughter’s number and called her. She didn’t answer so he left a message for her to call me. She called me and I went to rescue him.
All this could have been avoided if he had all our numbers memorized. But these days, who has all the numbers memorized. We don’t dial them anymore – we just push a button and the numbers are magically dialed.
To avoid this from happening again, I used an old business card and wrote all our numbers on the back. David keeps this card in his wallet. If he’s ever without his phone or it’s not charged and he needs us, he has the numbers handy.
Has this ever happened to you?
