Now get the hell off my metaphorical lawn.

Yeah I get the benefits. I think there are extremes though and I really think as a society we have become cell phone heads. We are to consumed and reliant on cell phone technology to our own detriment. Just exactly what are we going to do when the day comes and service is interrupted for an extended period of time or period?

They have basically said you don't need your land line lifeline anymore when in fact the day comes, there will be many people very sorry for not having another way to communicate.

I have one of those cell phone devices.


It plays the videos, and I can even change the ring tones on it.

I'm technical though so many of you probably won't know how to do that. (it even has a "calculator application" on it.)

True.

I have to keep it in Holy Water most of the time.

(when someone calls, it gives me tiny electrical jolts. So whenever I spasm and soil myself, I know I have a call coming in)

Mobile/cell phones are a toy that turned into a necessity for some.

I grew up without one. It wasn't till the late 90s that I got my first one. They make life easier for a lot of people, me included.

I couldn't imagine not being able to pick up the phone to check on my wife or daughter on a whim.

Whenever you see Dumbass walking/sitting outside busy with his cellphone he probably saw you first and didn't want to talk to you and to prevent that he is playing with his cellphone.

I have a regular land line phone and a cheap cell phone. I buy a card for the amount of minutes I want and don't need all the bells and whistles of the fancy expensive ones.

I can't stand seeing people in restaurants where they have their heads down and are texting or talking instead of paying attention to whoever they are with, even on a Holiday when some family members are there that you don't get to see much throughout the year. Texting while driving is highly irresponsible and could put people's lives in danger. I hate when someone texts me when they could have just as easily talked to me on the phone. Is that so friggin hard? Just talk to me!

I just remembered...the times I see kids coming home from school, heads down texting on their phones and keep walking while they are headed toward the edge of the sidewalk and almost fall into traffic. Idiots!

Wow. never seen you so riled up before, not sure how to deal, I know it used to be how ridiculous it was to email everyone, nobody ever sends a letter in written form anymore. If my kid was young, he would not have a smart anything that is for sure, he would get one of those prepaid jobs with only call ability for emergency only.

When I see people doing stupid things it just makes me want to walk up to them and shake the living daylights out of them or follow them to their next stop and steal their phone.

I constantly lament the fact that we no longer use parchment as a means of data storage.

I kind of miss having pen pals and writing and receiving letters in the mail. I love parchment paper!
