I put one foot over my purse and then the other foot and then I heard a voice from the back of the room... "WHO'S PHONE IS THAT?!" ....Crap.
Hmmmmmmmmmm..... Hmmmmmmm..... I raised my hand again and she walked to my desk. I grabbed my purse and looked frantically for my phone. Then she motioned for me to follow her to the back of the room where her desk was. I probably should have felt terrible but I was still searching for the phone and my freaking phone was still vibrating! Hmmmmmm..... Hmmmmmm.... and so I did what just comes naturally for me. I started laughing. Laughing, while digging through my purse, listening to that lound Hmmmmmmmm........ sound coming from someplace within my bag!
It wasn't an attractive laugh either because I was still trying to be quiet. I was still in the testing room and because it was so quiet, the vibrating bag was very distracting.
In between the muffled laughs, I was whispering to the stern woman glaring at me, that I had no idea why my phone was going crazy.
She did not look amused, but then I found the dang phone and pushed the button on the top. Just as I had silenced the humming sound she reached up and grabbed my cell phone. I think she wanted to see if I had a call or a text or maybe she figured something dodgy was going on. But instead of seeing her stern look, she started to smile. Then she started to laugh!! She stood up, leaned over the desk and softly said, "you should be in trouble but I'm just giving you a warning. That is too funny, so I cant charge you. Just hurry out." And I walked out while she sat there still laughing.
As it turns out, I had silenced all my normal stuff but there was an alarm I had set up many months ago that for some reason, had decided to go off today at 4pm. It was an alarm which I had set to remind me to go to the gym and of course, I had been a bit creative when naming this alarm. So, when this woman, who was about my age, took my phone to see what was going on, this is what she saw.....
I would have laughed too. Lesson of the day? Turn the whole phone off!!
