So I tried using the bud headset that came with my smart phone for a while and it seemed to work okay for calls and when I wanted to listen to music; however, the wire on them kept getting tangled and twisted up. Plus, Jack liked to play with it when he sat on my lap. After a while, it just wasn't working for me.
A few weeks ago, my client asked me to call him about a work question. I happened to be home at the time with a sick Jack. Although Jack was quietly playing on the floor, I knew I could be in a danger zone. Just as my client starts asking me his question, Jack started crawling over, screaming and crying. Of course I panicked, hit the mute button, and reached down to grab my baby. When I pulled him up, my headset detached from my phone and I couldn't hear a thing. It felt like forever before I got my phone back to my ear so that I could listen and answer the question. I missed it all. I took a random guess at what he was asking and somehow I got lucky and guessed right.
I don't think the client ever knew what happened that day, but the thought still haunts me. It was just too close of a call.
This week I just decided to finally invest in a Bluetooth Stereo Headset. For the $30, it's well worth it.
So far I love it. I'm hands free when I make calls and I have the ability to control volume from both my phone and headset. I can also run and listen to music now without a pesky wire! Everyone at work will be jealous when I'm on the treadmill.
Happy Friday everyone! Cheers to wireless chatting this weekend!
