SMRT

A long long time ago, when I was not paying attention, I set up an account for logging into my PS3 and being able to use as a conduit for Netflix. A long time ago…..so long that I could not figure out how to set up new account using my current email account. And it has all been good. Until today.

Cooking supper, t.v. going in the background, watching Grounded for Life on Netflix. And than something happens. I am all……what? I try to log back in. I am being told that my password has expired and I need to respond to email sent…..to the old account. Are you kidding me?

Now, I am 44 years old. I am not stupid. I can put together furniture from China using pictures only. I can figure out how to access my account. So I google it. And I click link after link after link and realize that they are of no use to me. So I do what any self respecting woman who has a younger brother who is a tech geek does….I text my baby bro help!!!!!!!

At first, he texts me the same shit that I just read on google. I have already tried this, it does not work. You are a tech god (ha he will never read this therefore never knowing that I called him a tech god lmao) he googles and sends me a link. Resetting up an account. Coooooooooool.

So, I set up new account. I verify said account and than I try to log in. And omg I am told that I cannot log in with someone else’s account! But nooooooooo……….I wail it is my account. So I shoot off an email to the bro. And than for reasons that are unbeknowenst to me, I decided to set up a secondary user on the PS. And than I logged off and restarted.

Given the option to log in via User 1 0r Daisymae72 (2ndary account) I chose Daisymae72. And than it asks me to log in. And I use the new email address and password. And there is success. Logged on. Access to Netflix. I am doing okay.

Brother texts back. Tell him I am so smart. He texts back SMRT Jay. That is me. I am not technologically savvy. A lot of what I do is hit and miss. But he got me half way there and I got home with the rest. And thank god ’cause my only source of visual entertainment is Netflix lol.

I am a single hard working mom in her early 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. A self confessed obsessive book worm I live for my son and my down time to read. I have a vast array of friends and cohorts who I will be writing about. I hope I can make people laugh or cry; be thoughtful and understanding. And I need to write so this will be my voice.
