Bluetooth is a right pain in the a** but it has its fun uses.  A few months ago my better half purchased a Bose Bluetooth speaker for the kitchen. 

I had to go out on a job; you can’t see the driveway from the house so she thought I had gone and was alone in the house.  So I sat in the car within range and booted a voice dictation app on my phone… that of course would play back through the speaker… through the Bluetooth speaker.

Hehe… anyway, suffice to say by the time I had finished firstly whispering… ‘help meeee’, then moaning… ‘We are in the cellar (basement)’ and finally screaming ‘we are coming for you’ into the app and re-playing through the speaker she wasn't happy… try it… it’s fun.

Divorce number three is now pending…
