That farmer...

Hah! I'm suspect that said farmer is in fact my father in law. He's got fingers the size of sausages, and often has to type on the computer using a pen as a stylus to poke the keys, in order to only press one key at a time.

He needed some pics (for an insurance claim) and used his feature phone, but couldn't locate the data cable. After being unable to get one at the local* phone mart, he purchased another cheap feature phone, got the chap in the shop to swap the SIMs and posted the phone to the insurer.

He also found it very amusing. He's also got a "for the elderly" feature phone now which has buttons he can hit one at a time with a finger. His thumb tends to hit two or more at the same time still :)

* about an hours drive each way from the farm
