There's an app for that!!
One of our older firefighters has an Iphone. He traded up from his "Crackberry" a while back. He likes to sit and play with it, showing us videos and such. He's not really trying to show off as much as he is just excited.
Yesterday, he came in the day room and sat down with the Iphone. He starts playing with it, and tells everyone he heard there is a "Dictionary app" and he is going to get it. He surfs, and finds one and starts to download loudly proclaiming that now he has a dictionary.
I looked across at him and told him in front of 4 witnesses that the online dictionary is unreliable and not complete.
What do you mean it's not complete? he asked in his wounded puppy voice.
I told him "There are lots of words that are not even in there."
"Gullible" I said as calm as I could be.
3 hours later (yes!! 3 hours!) he walks back into the day room, proudly holding his Iphone up and showing me and everyone else that he had in fact found the definition of gullible.
As the room started to snicker and laugh, he looked at me and realized what happened. I bet I can find the definition of asshole! he said as he turned and left the room.
It brightened my whole day!
