Can you live with out a cell phone ?
Went to one of my daughters friends party's . Walked in and saw all these teens . They were not talking to each other but just sitting there text-ing . I thought what a sad world it is !

Last year someone hit me who was text-ing . Took out my rear back light . I went on a high-speed chase to catch up with them and when I finally got them to pull over . The person told me they had to text on their cell phone to tell their boss they were going to be late for work and didn't have time to stop and give me information !

Then the other night went out to eat I saw this family sitting there they all were on their cell phones and didn't say a word to each other !

Its not the same world anymore.


Think I am the only one of my friends and family with a cell phone . I won't get one . I can live with out it .

Easily! I have an old pre-paid thingy that I hardly ever use.

Everywhere one goes there's scads of people with their eyeballs fixed on a tiny screen not paying attention to anything around them.

It irks me to no end if I am sitting with someone and they keep checking their phone.

I don't want to be available 24/7 to yack on the phone.

I can see having a phone for emergency's.
If i go on a trip somewhere I will get a prepaid just in case i break down . What gets me is when it takes over this is what I am seeing more and more of . I recently told my kids no cell phone at the dinner table and has to be off during homework . ( their Dad got them smart phones for their birthdays and I have seen big changes , for example find that they have a harder time focusing on homework and normal family interaction when they have the phone on them ) .

I dont want to be tied to a cell phone either . It takes away my freedom I feel .

Yeah i agree . I think It would be hard for me to give up a computer . I like to know whats going on in the world . Just this morning my internet was down and left me wondering what it would be like to live without it .
IF the grid goes down it would be a BIG adjustment that's for sure .
but I can walk away from the computer or TV .
Where as these smart phones are on people 24/7 and it seems like they can take over = just an observation .

I wonder at times how most of us would do if the grid really went down ? We are so used to the toys ... sometimes I wish I could take my kids back in time to say the 1800's and let them learn really how to live without modern conveniences . Have noticed that some kids get bored now on camping trips ( what do we do ?- I say go on a hike look for animals or find a pretty rock ! ) . They are so used to being stimulated by TV's video games , electronics ect . It is how they have been conditioned in this day in age . Its sad really .

Re: Can you live with out a cell phone ?
I have the cell phone curse.

Every 4 months I have to get a new one because It either breaks or is stolen.

I hate talking on the cell, when I'm ordering a pizza I can feel the side of my head warm up.
