The Best New Smart Phone Application

Okay, so this new application hasn't been invented yet. It is my idea and if there is anyone out there who can help me make this application a reality, please get in touch!

So....have you ever had someone send you a text or leave you a message asking you to call them right back? Of course you have.

How many times have you called that person back, right away, only to find they don't answer? Then they call you back five minutes later saying that they didn't hear the phone ring or that it was in their back pocket and they didn't feel it vibrate.

For those of us with friends and loved ones with hearing loss and/or the loss of sensation, I have the perfect solution.

So, you know how when leaving a message you hear, "Press 1 to leave a message, press 2 to leave a call back number?"

Well, I have thought of 3 new options and they would go something like this:

- "Press 3 to have the party you are trying to reach tapped on the shoulder to get their attention."

- "Press 4 to have the party you are trying to reach slapped in the back of the head."

- "Press 5 to drop the elbow on the party you are trying to reach."

I'm pretty sure one of these three options would get the attention of the person you are calling.

So that's it. The "Be Sure to Get Their Attention" application. Even if it can't be done in reality, it would probably make a good Saturday Night Live skit.

I would like to dedicate this blog post to my wonderful husband. The love of my life, the man of my dreams, a great Dad and the inspiration for this blog post =D
