User error.

My TomTom decided I live in Guam. I can't get it to undecide I live in Guam. For awhile, I lived in Texas. Then boom. Guam. What the hell? I've had this thing for all of three minutes, and already I am screaming at it.

The best part was when Kenny's turned on right away, and mine didn't. So, of course, I called Amazon. They immediately offered to ship a new one. With overnight shipping. I think I might have even said, "I know it isn't user error, because I got the other one to work." Then I sit down to read the manual, and see the part in bold that says, "If the device does not start, press the reset button." User. Error.

It was fun calling Amazon back to admit I am an idiot.

Now I get to call TomTom customer service and ask them how to move back to Texas.

I had a Tom Tom for like 3 days and I sold that SOB on eBay for more than I paid for it. It made me feel really stupid.

User Error for real, up in this bitch.

Yeah, I prefer good old fashion maps, especially since I am electronically retarded.

LMAO-- you should have seen me trying to figure my nav system in the car. Did you know there is a Houston, Pennsylvania? I had a long drive ahead of me. :D

The good news is, I have returned from my trip to Guam. The bad news is, I didn't know the damn thing yelled at you for speeding until, well, it yelled at me for speeding. BOOOOONG! BOOOOONG! Yes, Yes, I get that I am driving 41 in a 40. Now, shut the hell up.

After I shut that shit up, I decided I like the thing. You know, even if the only place I have navigated to is Emmi's school that I drive to twice a week.

Glad you made it back from Guam! ;) My husband bought me one for Christmas but I made him return it because I drive from home to work to school to home...everyday...so I think I got it down.

Yeah...I don't really know when I will need to use it. I mean, how hard is it to find the coffee shop I go to EVERY day? But I really like how sweet my Tomtom talks to me. He tells me I am pretty.

hahahah I could use a self esteem boost everyday from a TomTom...especially those mornings when I run out of the house with damp hair and no mascara.

Get all the Starbucks programed in it. I love to know!
And stop.

This really has nothing to do with this post...but I wanted to tell you that I went to the Starbucks by my work today...for the sole purpose of purchasing a cupcake...and they had NO cupcakes. WTF? Was this a limited time offer and my slow ass missed out? I did however have a huge chunk of coffee cake and a Grande Caffe Mocha. My ass is larger now.
