I spent hours trying to dig myself out of a technology hole yesterday. The “check engine” light is on in my car; a year ago, I bought this code reader you stick into your car’s port and it tells you what’s wrong. I decided it was finally time to set it up. Of course, first you have to install an app on your phone and get it to pair up via Bluetooth.
Well, that didn’t work. I thought maybe my phone was out of memory, so I deleted some apps. Still didn’t work. So I decided it was time to set up the new old phone I got from my friend.
Hahahahaha! I kill myself. It took the entire afternoon, and it’s still not set up, because OF COURSE I DON’T REMEMBER MY PASSWORDS. Every time I would try to sign in, I’d get a “you have used that password recently” message.
“You must update your Google account to sign in.” Google account? Is that my gmail, or is it something else? Arghh. Maybe today I’ll have better luck.
