Time Out for Labels!

Saved By A Label! from TimeOutDad on Vimeo.

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to put my name and my cell phone number on my flash keys? WHY? I had a few students leave their flash drives in the computer, and I had no way of knowing who left them in the lab. That’s when I decided to use my label machine and put small sticker labels with my name and cell number on them. So, yesterday, I was saved by one of my labels? I must have reached for my apartment keys, and in the process, one of my flash keys fell on the floor, right by the entrance. Luckily, someone picked it up, and gave it to the security desk. As I was on my way to my in-laws for dinner, I received a phone call. I didn’t recognize the number on caller ID, but thank goodness I answered. So much of my semester’s work was on it. I had it saved in other places, but this had some of the final drafts. Another lesson? NEVER use your flash key for primary storage. Too many things can go wrong with them! 😉
