Haha this made my day!
Liltaco-Just shut up. Please for the love of all that is good and holy, shut the hell up! You're wrong. Get over it. Dragging on an argument because you're butthurt over your mistake is pointless. Every comment you post only makes you look dumber. Stupider is, despite what you're in denial about, a word. It is only correct, however, depending on the context in which you use it. Start reading the dictionary bud, instead of striking up invalids arguments with your superiors. And I suggest you do it now.
Liltaco, what exactly do you think a dictionary is? Do you understand the purpose of a dictionary? I have to assume you don't based on your sheer lack of comprehension here. Do yourself another favour and look up "dictionary" in the dictionary. I'll give you a hint: it's a compilation of words and their definitions. They are WORDS, not "stuff people put in some stupid book just because they feel like it". For fuck's sake get a fucking clue.
This is why you should always check your phone at least a few times a day.
This is precisely the reason why I simply turn off my phone in such situations; it is much easier to notice a turned-off phone than one in airplane mode. I assume this person turned the phone onto airplane mode so they could use it during the flight (for games or something), and if this is the case, the OP deserved it for not switching the device back to normal mode immediately upon landing.
151- Basic technology? I shouldn't have to say more than that to make my position on what you said clear. Phones are not basic. Their interface may be somewhat "user-friendly," but the programming on all that's is very complex, and all the electronic components inside certainly aren't simple pieces of technology. Also, you can't just act as if all phones have a clear indicator of airplane mode. And if OP did get the job, I'd think they would give him a business phone, most likely one where he can easily tell if airplane mode is activated.
Turns out you had lost "contact" with the person who was supposed to call you.
I'm sorry, but how did you not notice your phone wasn't working? Also, IF you knew the number that was going to call you, why not try calling it? You'd notice that the call isn't going through and find out about the airplane mode earlier and could have switched it out. Anyways, I hope you get your once in a lifetime interview dilemma resolved! If you worked hard to get this opportunity, it would suck not to get it. (Trust me everyone, if you missed out on a once in a lifetime opportunity, even if it was a stupid mistake, you'd be upset too!)
I'm sure it will be OK if you explain what happened to your perspective employer. Companies are clamoring to staff up with incompetent assholes who can't use technology.
