I have a lot of pet peeves when it comes to cell phones. People simply don’t know the proper times to use and NOT to use them. For example – public restrooms… Does the person you called really want to listen to the sounds emanating from a public restroom?? I know I’d rather not hear those sounds when I’m actually IN the bathroom let alone when someone has called me. Can’t they just wait till they are done and then make their call?
Or – how about when everyone gets together for an event and they all bring out their phones and bury their faces in them. What ever happened to talking to the people around you?
Yet another example is at a concert when all you can see are a sea of cell phones in the air recording the event. How about living in the moment and actually WATCHING the event live!!!
One last piece would be for those people that have cell phones but don’t bring them with. They leave them at home when they leave the house… WHY??? Why even have one if you aren’t going to use it properly?
I’d love to go back to the time when we didn’t run our lives by our cell phones. They sure have made things easier but they also add unwanted complications to our lives! Think about it – you used to leave the house and no one could reach you until you go to your destination. Sometimes I wonder how we ever survived. Sometimes I want to go back to that time.
I personally would love to unplug for a few weeks, maybe more. Could you do it? If you think you could – how long do you think you could go? A week, two, more? How about a year? Hhhmmm – sounds nice!
