The other day I went into the kitchen when Husband was there cooking something, and I opened a drawer to get out a spoon to eat some yogurt. I had my phone in my sweater pocket. I exclaimed upon grabbing the spoon “The silverware drawer is disgusting”! It had lots of crumbs and crud in it, as happens with such drawers. I made a mental note to clean it later.
I sat down and pulled out my phone. There in the Google search bar were the words “The silverware drawer is disgusting” and below were many references to cleaning tips and strategies. I was both shocked and amused. I never use the Google function on my phone in which I could ask the phone to look things up for me or search for something. I must have tapped the button unbeknownst when I put it in my pocket. It really felt as though the phone was eavesdropping on me. I plan to be far more careful in the future to make sure I haven’t engaged that function .
Where and when would you have wanted to be a fly on the wall?
