My phone at work (and the spy in me)...

My phone is a valuable tool to me at work. Recently I’ve been keeping track of what students still need to take a particular standardized test in the note app on my phone. It’s my calculator, my timer, and the only watch I carry. It has my Google calendar (which is filled with mostly school related things). I have Dropbox on my phone: that holds a huge number of things (including schedules). I have alarms set on my phone that tell me my C&P is about to be over, or that the day is about to start, etc. I could go on…

It was recently suggested to me that someone thinks I could be a spy, and that when I have my phone out I’m texting my wife to tell her about bad stuff that’s happening. I find that thought humorous. But (for what it’s worth) below you’ll find a transcript of every text my wife and I have sent to each other since the teacher work year started. I don’t delete them. You’re welcome to look at my phone whenever you like (just ask and I’ll hand it to you). If you suspect that some texts are missing, say so and I’ll produce a bill you can take home and reconcile (text by text) with the list below.
