My colleague is on vacation this week so I’m on my own at work again. We have a mobile phone for all our work calls, so I can take it with me when I go somewhere, and even work some hours from home. (Which is necessary since this week I have the phone by myself the entire week.. From 6.30am to 9.30pm.)
Anyway, having two mobiles can be confusing at times. I had put the work phone in my pocket and was looking something up on my personal phone. Work phone rings, so I put down my own. As I’m talking to someone about work, I start wandering around. When the call ends, I realise that I’ve walked away and left my personal phone wherever I was when I took the call.
It should be noted that at this point I was in a supermarket, getting lunch.
Imagine my panic when I realise my phone (which is also my wallet) is on the opposite side of the supermarket. Fortunately, it was still where I left it, on top of a bunch of juice boxes. But I really need to be more careful.
