I don't want one of these.......


mobile phone things! Is what Dad said when I rang him yesterday.







I asked what exactly had happened re the Warden and he told me that unfortunately the usual one was off sick so a stand in had been appointed. The stand in had been on the intercom yesterday morning to Dad and he had given her both barrels re the fiasco the day before.

Apparently she hadn't even bothered trying the intercom on Wednesday, she had just left it to the control centre to try to contact Dad, and when they couldn't get any reply they had contacted my brother.

Dad told her "It's your job to make sure I'm OK not their's. You are supposed to come to see me, not just buzz, but you didn't do that did you? Then if you can't get any reply you have a key so you can get in to see if I'm OK, but you didn't do that either did you?"

The only excuse she could come up with was that she wasn't allowed to enter his home alone.

Dad said "I know that but all you had to do was get another resident to come with you!" Again she had no defence.

I told Dad we should complain about what has happened but he doesn't want to take it any further so there's not much we can do about it.

As to the mobile phone he can't even get the keypad lock off it at the moment. Brother has written down instructions on how to use it but Dad can't understand them! I will go through it with him when I see him on Saturday. I explained it's only for emergencies and we won't be ringing him on it unless it's absolutely necessary, hopefully that won't happen!

So, for the moment, all is well.

I am so glad my father finally relented. When he retired he bought a cab and drives in Wash. D.C. He was down there when 9/11 happened and the Pentagon was hit. We could not get in touch with him and he had a hard time getting out of the city. We all panicked.
Now, fortunately, he has one. Whew!

Nothing like a close call to get one to change their mind about something.

Josh - me neither!

That must have been REALLY scary! I'm sure my Dad will get used to it, you never know he might get to like it! ;)

My Dad won't use his. I also daren't let him know I'm on the internet because he reckons it's just full of perverts and sex sites!

Your dad had a point -- maybe you should complain.

I don't think Dad want's any trouble and hopefully she's learned a valuable lesson.

Have often thought I could do with some sort of buzzer type thing for emergencies...seems I am probably better off trying to get to the phone than pressing a buzzer for someone to come and check on me lol

Looking forward to hearing all about your instruction lesson with Dad on the phone! Glad to hear the knee is doing well :o)

Actually the service provided where Dad lives is usually excellent, it was just a slight hiccup.
