If all else fails, read the directions!
- I think I am pretty good with technology.
- I am a bottom line kind of person. (I have heard that is a quality of a Scorpio...who knows but the stars may be to blame.)
Today I discovered that things work out better if I just do what I do without listening to anyone else. I learned at my father's knee that one should never read the instruction unless all else fails! Skip to the bottom line and just do it he said. Strange but true.
Here is what happened:
My husband and I bought a second car yesterday and the salesman was trying to showing us all the cool stuff it would do. Finally he arrived at pairing our phones to the car. He had lessons so I figured he would know what to do. But no matter what he did, it just did not work. I was sure I could do it in a flash so I tried and failed. Then my husband tried and failed. Now I don't know what their problem was but I knew couldn't have possible been me! It had to be the car or the phone.
All else had failed so I read the directions carefully, looked up the number of the tech person at Apple and Mini and returned to the car. I reread the printed instructions (kind of, because I am good with tech stuff you know) and tried again...5 times. Evidently even reading the direction if all else fails does not work. Still no luck. Now I was sure it was not my fault.
I made a cup of coffee, played on the computer and returned to the car. I turned on the car and the phone and scrolled ALL THE WAY TO THE "BOTTOM LINE" on the screen on the dash of the car. No reading just scrolling. That was when I saw the very important last word...OK.
And you guessed it...all I really needed to do was click OK once. ( Really, I am pretty sure there was nothing in the instruction about clicking "OK".)
So Daddy, if you're up there listening, I am going to do what you taught me the next time. I am going to skip to the "bottom line". Directions be hanged!
Thank you for reading.
