    Default The "I forgot my dongle" thread.

    'I forgot my dongle'

    and couldn't listen to music or podcasts on the way to work this morning.

    This thread is intended to be a slice of life, commiserating, amusing thing.
    Not a rant or bash Apple thing.

    I put mine in the car the other day and almost forgot to take it in the building with me this morning. I had to go back and get it. I will be buying a couple more when I can get to the Apple Store this week! #forgotmydongle

    My dongle is always on me. Although my wife sometimes suggests that it could be bigger.

    My actual fm/am radio usage is significantly lower due to pandora integration in vehicles but I do feel the need to listen to some fm channels once in a while to "feel one with reality"

    Frankly I think Apple is forcing us to be highly inappropriate here. I foresee scores of people waving their dongle about in public, comparing dongle size, playing with their dongle in full view of children.
    Now I don't know about you, but I think we're going to need to pass some measures, enact some bills to protect the public's morality, this is verrrrry serious business.
    So I nominate HB3:
    From now on, anyone who needs to listen to music in public MUST have the appropriate dongle!!!

    We cannot let Apple threaten the moral fiber of the population, omg, think of the children!
    There's nothing wrong with a dongle per se but can you imagine the trauma suffered by innocent eyes if they were subjected to the horrors of seeing the wrong dongle in action?!

    Tsk tsk tsk...

    If you absolutely must use your dongle in public, you must be able to prove that you are the rightful owner of this dongle.
    There will be no sharing dongles, we are not animals.

    If your dongle flops, the Genius Bar says it's because it's been attacked by the McCrory virus, the only way to fix that is to crumple it tight and shove it up ... um... what's the name of that body cavity, again?
    If your dongle gets too hard, send it to Congress, they turn everything flaccid with great success, there.
    If your dongle gets lost, this is fatal unless you can go to Apple, hop on the first display table within your reach, hop on and start the complicated hula dongle chacha to the sound of the Macarena.

    IT'S THE ONLY WAY, STEVE JOBS TOLD ME SO IN A DREAM AND I WOULD NEVER LIE, OK?

    But rejoice, everyone: After the mandatory donglenoscopy which may leave you a bit sore, and pending the permission of your spouse or parents if you're not married, you will be outfitted with a replacement dongle.

    Now on your knees, heathens, and give thanks to the Mighty Dongle Diddler or we might be forced to send you to dongle conversion therapy, and that program is run by Mike Pence, you might want to right your last will and testament before proceeding.

    Radio, radio, uhhh oh, yeah.
    That's that thing where stations seem to air commercials at the same time, right? lol

    I prefer being my own radio station, no crap, only what I like.

    Does your car have an Auxillary input? Get a Bluetooth receiver that plugs into that... There are multiple 3rd party means of adding Bluetooth to vehicles audio systems if one bothers to look...

    I looked into that a long time ago, at that time they didn't exist.
    Now that they do, I'll look again.

    Your cheerful suggestion & condescension is appreciated. Have a nice day.

    In the time you've spent creating and replying in this thread, you probably could have found a solution and had nothing to whine about... Sounds condescending... Plain truth often does.

    I'd actually changed my reply before you posted this, because: "This thread is intended to be a slice of life, commiserating, amusing thing".
