The other afternoon I noticed that when I set the time on my iPhone/iPod dock incorrectly. (example- It would read that it was 11pm the day before instead of 11am the current day.)
Sitting there looking at the directions then the dock, then back again for about five minutes…thoroughly confused…I said…
“….I just have to figure out how to turn it on standby…how in the world??”
Ryan – “uh, is it on…?”
Me – “no….”
Ryan – “babe…that means its on Stand By.”
Me – “oh..”
Ryan – “have you not ever used a DVD player…?”
Me – “well of course I have!”
Ryan – “…are you sure? Because if I didnt know any better I would have thought you just stepped out of a portal for 1920.”
Yep…that really happened.
And my DVD player does indeed say “Standby/On” over the power button. But my mind totally didn’t connect the two.
