Mini SD Adaptor

For my birthday last year I got this really cool new phone! This phone is really cool because it's basically a camera that just happens to do all the things a phone can do. It takes better pictures then my actual camera and is way smaller and goes with me everywhere! So, as I'm sure you have already assumed, I take most of my pictures with my phone. The problem with that is that my phone has the tiniest memory card- you have to use an adapter to load your pictures off your phone and onto a computer. So I asked my Pa, "Pa, do we have an adapter that will fit with my memory card?" "Sure." He says. So we look through the huge drawer full of adapters and connecting cords, and chargers and other miscellaneous camera/phone/computer stuff and find one that looks like it fits with my card. "Here ya go!" he says. I try to put my card in the adapter and it won't fit! "Umm, Pa? ...It doesn't fit." I said. "Let me try." He replies. Sure enough neither of us could get it to fit. "Why?" you ask. Well because my SD card is the only card in existence that requires a MINI adapter and not a MICRO adapter. "How do you know this?" you ask? Well, I know this because I have been to Fry's, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Target and could not find a MINI adapter. Found lots of micro adapters though! So, being the girl that I am, I put on my best "I'm a girl and don't know what I'm doing" face and headed to the help desk at each of these places where I asked "Do you carry any Mini adapters for this SD card?" (Showing my phone's memory card.) "No, you have to order it straight from Sony. I think they're pretty expensive too. You should probably try to use a micro card instead of a mini we carry those and they're pretty cheap in comparison." Is the basic answer that I got.

We-he-ell! Guess what geeky camera/phone/computer/help desk guys?! Amazon carries them and I just bought one for $4! SO THERE!

Moral of this story? Never accept the first, second, third, or fourth answer you get. Keep trying until you're happy with your response!

Oh, and the point? - Picture will be coming in 3 to 5 business days!
