All these reasons reinforce my determination to NEVER get a cell phone. NOTHING is so important that it can't wait until I get home and check my answering machine.
THere was a time not too many centuries ago when if someone wanted to reach you, they sent a LETTER and that letter was delivered by HORSE. Civilization seemed to go on.
"Honey, I just got off the train and I'll be home in 6 minutes."
"Honey, I am waiting for the elevatior and I'll be upstairs in 1 minute."
"Honey, I'm just going to the Men's room and I'll call when I get settled in a stall!"
<I WISH I were making up some of these overheard snippets.>
If it's true that "Absence makes the heart grow fonder," is it possible that "Cell phones make a relationship grow NAUSEOUS?"
