Man in black: It was actually easy to give up the phone when I realized I don't ever want to hear from anyone about anything.
You said it.
…or at least from anyone who’s likely to call me by telephone. Seems like that’s mainly telemarketers, scammers, political pollsters, and people who think I owe them money.
Gave my phone up years ago and I do not miss it
My wife has a smartphone and we have a land line due to some bundle thing, more than enough
Got stuck in traffic because of an accident a few weeks ago and it would have been nice to be able to call my wife and tell her why I was going to be late, first time in a long time I had any need for my own phone
We have one cell phone and a land line. Whoever is going out or going farther takes the cell phone with him or her. Works for us.Remember the days when if you weren’t home or at your desk, no one could reach you?
this is less than a year away – because of my ‘job’ i have always needed communication technology – but soon!
That’s why I dumped Facebook! I don’t care about pictures of your baby eating spaghetti for the first time!
Most the people I know use their phones to ONLY CALL OUT, they don’t answer calls or they have all inbound auto rejected, etc…I think wow if the whole world went that way then phones would be useless…cause nobody could call anybody back…a worldwide game of never ending phone tag.
Usually its cause they say I’m busy right now, I’ll call them back when its convient for me. Seems kind of selfish to me, especially when they do it to their own family members. Ironically these same people complain about how when a doctors office calls with results or something and they auto reject that its stupid how long they have to wait on hold when they call back or how the person at the office says the nurse is busy to take a message and call them back…
all I can do is laugh
Even when a teenager and phone was on our kitchen wall, I never talked on it. I prefer eye contact.
