“When I was a kid, we didn’t HAVE cell phones…and we LIKED it that way!!”
I SO do not want a Blackberry or an iPhone. I have a cell phone, but only my family has that number and they’re under STRICT orders to call me only when it’s an emergency ( “kid is bleeding” “pick up some eggs” etc) and to NEVER give out the number to anyone else.
I can’t stand the thought of everyone I know – or worse, people I don’t know – being able to contact me when I’m shopping or at the movies or … where ever. Call me at home and leave a message, like in the good old days! I promise I’ll call you back.
SO many people come up to the counter, talking on their cellphone, and expect me to wait on them at the same time. I HATE THAT! I ignore them until they’re done with their call. Yes I do.
And don’t even talk to me about APPS. Argh!!!! If I wanna read an ebook or update my Twitter page or harvest some veggies on my Facebook Farm Town, I’ll do it when I get home like a civilized person. And so should you.
Seriously. Put down the damned phone. Do it now.
