I was raised in the fifties and lived through the sixties and seventies – and there were no cell phones. If you were at work and needed to call home, you went to a phone and made your call. If you were traveling you waited until you got to your destination to make your call. No one felt the need to have a telephone with them at all times; and people were able to do things without obsessing that they might miss a call, or a text from a friend shopping at a grocery store and posting about the price of peas.
If you are a professional on call I can understand you need; but the average person does not need to be tied to a telephone. You are not that important. And the idiot walking around Walmart with the cyborg phone blinking in his ear…; and anyone who has their cell phone ring during a movie or a play should have the phone shoved up their ass.
Ok, I am antiquated, archaic, unfashionable, out-of-date, outmoded, , behind the times; but this obsession with a cell phone is really ridiculous.
