Okay this is random but Duolingo saved my phone :D
So I stupidly lost my phone and so this random person picks up my phone and Duolingo sends a reminder to my email, and my phone has my email and my laptop does too. So it sends a reminder for me to do my daily lesson, and it addresses me by my full email, so this person gets my email because its at the beginning of the message and they get a preview of it on my locked phone screen, so they email me from their phone, and I'm on my laptop and get the email and we find a place to meet up so I can get my phone back. Thanks Duolingo :D
When I went to look at the forums today, I didn't expect to see this! Amazing! :-)
me to, although if it was an expensie phone, they are just lucky that a nice person picked their phone up:P
I do understand why the other person was in such a hurry to bring the phone back though
No, I feel like they are still pretty evil. I just throw them in my spam.
Incredibile. V. Happy for you! (Incidentally do you intend vingear or vinegar, just wondering).
Thanks for sharing! I was feeling down but your comment has made me feel better, reading about some good deeds for a change.
So what happened next? Did you hook up with the person, we want details. (gets popcorn)
Nice story; with the 4 lingots you have 30 lingots now (you can use them, or save them)
Nope. The reminder was literally Duolingo being annoying and reminding me that I hadn't done my damn Spanish lesson laughs
That's awesome! I'm always gently reminded of the good in humanity when its so easy to feel threatened by the external world. I've had something like this happen, not as cool as what happened to you but anyways I am glad you got it back ^_^
That was the point laughing His name is Jean Luc Picard he's got a new series coming out this year not so old now XD
I LOVE STAR TREK NEXT GEN! I have watched all da episodes. I didn't notice your profile till now
That bird will do anything to get you to practice your 5 minutes of Spanish
Hi Salty vinegar. Now you have got many lingots! I wish people would give me some lingots, but I don t know what to say to make people give me some lingots
Lol same. That's me too...even though I already have 311 of them...so i don't really need any (I've like never even used them anyway) but it's still nice to collect them. :)
You can earn more on your phone than on your computer. I spend more time on my computer than on the app on my phone, but I have about ten times as many lingots on my phone!
That's cool! A good reason to leave on the notifications from Duolingo :)
What a bonus! And the person who helped to return it: "muy sympatica, verdad?"!
I can just imagine that e-mail. "Hey random person, I have your phone =)!"LOL.
The green owl might kidnap your family if you miss a day, but it saves your phone if you don't. Win-win situation
That's good to know. I have heard that this owl is an all-powerful god being of the digiverse. It seems the rumours were true...
Duolingo helped you but these reminders killed too many people already. The evil Duolingo bird kills everybody who skips the lesson. You shouldn't be happy about it helping you, because it will come back one day, it will come back and then you will remember my words!
Sorry guys it's getting late but I had to say that
