“Mr. James, you’ve made a great choice in your new phone,” the cheerful girl said as she recorded the sale. “As a free service to you, I can also transfer all of your saved phone numbers and text messages.”
“Would you, please?” Mr. James said as he handed over his older phone.
She accepted the phone and quickly reviewed the stored data. “Are there any of these texts you’d like to keep?” she asked.
Mr. James glanced at the phone and said, “Just the one from Ronnie.”
“Wow, It’s over eight years old,” she said.
“Yes, it is,” he answered.
