I’ll tell you right now, I do not answer Face Time calls.
I don’t know what happens to the camera on the iPhone during a face time call (or maybe it is how I really look but I’m refusing to admit it) but I swear the Aging Booth app is built into that thing and I can’t even look at myself.
I am 45 years old, so I have the normal wrinkles and creases people my age do (although I am a fanatic about skin care and staying out of the sun — but that’s for another post), but my facial lines don’t look THAT BAD in my bathroom mirror. I can stomach looking at them. On the iPhone though, I look like the crypt keeper. The iPhone takes beautiful pictures, but when you turn on Face Time, something goes horribly wrong. I thought it would be so cool to see the person you are talking to — NOT!
For safety reasons, I have my kids texts show up on my iPad and for some reason the girls’ Face Time calls come through as well. I feel bad but I decline the call right away. I’ll tell the girls to that their friend is trying to reach them but I am not answering it.
Have you ever accidentally Face Timed someone? That always puts me in a panic because I start hitting buttons to shut it off before the call can go through. I look like a spaz banging away at the phone.
Maybe Apple is in cahoots with all of the doctors that handle facial injections. I’m sure Face Time is a huge money maker for those guys 🙂
If I had any guts I’d post a picture of myself on Face Time to let you see what I’m talking about. Maybe in a future post . . . I’m just getting started here.
