Most days baby bo peep calls me on her way from work for the drive home to lunch

I always enjoy our chats, but today was 

It has to do with technology and all the ways it can go wrong
and I am still laughing...I hope you enjoy the story too!

She had a long evening meeting
Coach Been is the head coach at Anton (Lubbock) and also teaches Chemistry and Physics

Her boss texted her and said her daughter was having a bit of trouble understanding physics

She lined up a tutor session without asking Coach Been

during a break in the meeting she tried to call him to give him a heads up that the student would be arriving soon.  No answer.  Call. Call. Call. Call. Text. Text. Text. Text.

She was sure he had fallen asleep on the couch

from her phone
cranked up the heat

that should wake him up!

She also decided to turn on the "AWAY" alarm so that even the slightest move from him or the pups would wake him.

both worked
 when he went to open the door 
the alarm went off

the company tried to call him...except his phone was dead (because they only have one charger and she took it...so that explains why there was zero communication from him)

they had no choice but to send the police

in the meantime the alarm company called her and she told them the dilemma so she also called her neighbors
who, like a good neighbor, arrived next door amid police and alarms and barking dogs to find a very sweaty coach with 18 missed calls and texts as the cute student drove up for her physic session

This made my day. I have pulled some antics on my husband, but this far exceeds any of mine. Love also that she's willing to share the story.
