Can you imagine life without a cell phone?
- For some, this might be your worst nightmare. Your personal hell.
- For others, life without a cell phone would be paradise.
I had another one of many conversations with an out of state client whose REO purchase closes in a couple of days. She does not have a cell phone, and after our talk I found myself pondering...
So what WOULD life look like without a cell phone??
No entertaining, and not so entertaining, ring tones to listen to
No text messages
No telemarketing calls (well at least not to your hip or purse)
No surfing the 'Net wherever you are (OK, most places)
No bothersome emails unless you sit down at your computer
No reminders in every meeting, in restaurants, and in church to turn off your phones
No frantic stepping out of a meeting room and running outside to get cell service
No dropping calls
No sprained thumbs
Bars would take on a whole new meaning. Or an old meaning
No bumping into trees, lamp posts, people or falling off the curb while texting and emailing (Seriously, injuries are increasing)
Social gatherings would all be live, and folks would look you in the eye when you are talking
No one talking at the top of their lungs walking down the street (alright, there may still be some of that)
Less pressure to respond instantly, no matter what you are doing (come one, admit you take calls and text in the bathroom)
Folks would drive their cars with both hands on the wheel.
People would dine out without chatting on their cells, or annoying others
No beaming or bumping
I could go on, but you get the picture.
There ARE folks who manage to get through life without cell phones. We ALL did for years. But I don't know that I could now.
The thought of putting it away for a while or not taking it everywhere I go has some appeal. Until I really think about it and panic. I AM hooked. I admit it. You?
