Android. T- Mobile.
A few weeks ago when I’d get a text from The Missus (for nobody else wants to send me a text, so disagreeable is my personality in real life) my phone would tell me, “Yo dude, you got TWO messages”. There would be only one message, so I just figured my phone was having trouble with the whole counting thing and promptly didn’t care.
However, much like a burning urine stream, the miscount seems to have been indicative of a larger problem. Today, my phone now tells me I have SIX messages for each actual one text received. To belabor the ill-fitting metaphor, the burning is really bad now but everything is still working so…
Oh! A question? Yeah, so, like, why is my phone doing that? I’ve ruled out cell tower echoes (if those are even a thing, I think I made them up just now) because it happens no matter where I am. My brother says it’s evidence of The GovernmentFinterceptingNandOforwardingRmyDtexts. I am dubious because he can be just as nutty as that theory sometimes, but I haven’t ruled it out. The Missus and I get pretty naughty over the texts sometimes.
