Yes, buy me a GoPro. Make it the waterproof one because it’s pi$$ing rain here. Actually, just send me your credit card number and I’ll take care of it. I’ll buy it from the Fluke store.

In both circumstances it will start ringing my device and show me where it is on a map.

I forget things a lot too. Joe's point is have several work arounds or one or two backup plans. I mean really... what would you do if you got to a job to device out all day, but, you forgot your strippers? Does the job stop for a whole hour and a half?

What about a watch like a Fitbit. I just get the cheap versions. Maybe $30. It’s connected to the phone with Bluetooth. If you walk away from the phone far enough it vibrates on your wrist.

The only reason I get the watches is because it vibrates on my wrist when the phone rings or you receive a text. If it wasn’t for that I would never hear the phone. For $30 I can usually get a year and a half of of it, if I don’t loose it.....

Unless you've left your phone at a location, OTHER THAN HOME, it's unnecessary.

Forgetting it at home is vastly different than forgetting it at a jobsite, restaurant, or supplier.

Personally, mine goes in my left front pocket. I know I have it just about any time I sit, squat, or bend over. I have forgotten it at home, but I realize it as soon as I sit in the van.

I never forget my phone because I keep it in my prison wallet.

I use an OtterBox with a belt clip. The odd time that I do miss place my phone, I use my SmartWatch to set off a ringer to locate it. Also works the other way to find my watch if I take it off and forget where I put it.

What type of phone do you use? Doesn't Android have a function like Apple's Find My iPhone? You can use any computer or device to login to your iCloud account and see where your devices are.

What the fvck does a phone tether have to do with someone's sexual proclivities? God you guys are so one-note.

It’s very gay. It’s like wearing pantyhose or eyeliner.

They have tiny proclivities and are overcompensating.

Could always have it surgically implanted. (?)

I meant gay as in "ghey" not gay. i think that's what Hack meant too.

But it's interesting you didn't pick up on that......

Attach it to your keys, you can't leave without those.

I should probably get one of those pink or neon green cases so I can see it when I set it down. The damn thing disappears in the tool bag or most anywhere because my eyesight sucks these days.
