In our world today the majority of America is glued to their phones. They text, call and surf the web on their phones nonstop.
I don't. I have a simple Motorola Flip Phone. I only make phone calls with it.
Most of the time when MyHubby is not home I try to have the phone in my pocket or when I leave the house. I do this because I was given advice long time ago to carry a phone with me at all times to ease MyDaughter's worries of me falling and unable to get up. I balked at the idea but grudgingly did so. Now in my old age (HA!) I think it was a good suggestion.
However, when Hubby is home I tend to forget about it. Of course, people call me and the phone is in the other room and I don't hear it if we have the TV on.
Or you know those times when your phone never rings all day but once you go to the bathroom, it rings!
Many times when Hubby and I leave to go somewhere I seldom bring my phone because he has his. I figure if a family member or friend who has both of our numbers and it is very important, they'll call his if I don't answer.
When I return calls a lot of people ask me why I don't have my phone. Many ask me why I don't have texting, it would be so much easier. Not for me. It would be a nuisance. To keep pressing those little keys is not for me. I do it a little on my I-touch but to have a whole conversation ? Heck no!
MAYBE, one day Hubby and I will get a plan for texting. I doubt it though. It's hard to give up a $30 phone bill for a $100 bill.
If you should call me and I don't answer, its not that I don't wanna talk to you. I am either doing something or more likely I don't have the phone near or with me. Leave me a message.
Until next time...
