Cell Hell

Ah. Finally the crowd is forming, and I'm not so all alone. I have gone through cell phone hell over the past few months, and I'm not the only one. This article tells me that a lot of us are shunning idiotic cell phones that come laden with more technology than my car.

When a recent contract came up, the company I'm with sent these gadgety stupid phones. I was terrified of it, and couldn't answer it when it rang. The little book was an inch thick, and made no sense. Somehow I lost it (though a part of me thinks the thing just ran away rather than face any more indignities), and when I called to replace it, I ordered Just A Phone. It makes and received calls. Takes a message. That's it. No internet, no photos, no movies, no fancy games.

The only calls I get are when I leave the boys alone together at home. Within ten minutes, it'll ring, and one of them will say 'Mo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-m, he won't let me use the computer/phone/ something'.

See? The only feature I really need isn't offered. I need a phone that will let me smuck my kids from afar.

When I got my last cell phone the clerk proceeded to go on and on about the features it had. It can download this and play this and has a camera and bluetooth (not that I care what colour it's teeth are) and this and that, then I stopped her in her tracks by asking a question the scared her. "Can I make a phone call on it?". She looked confused then unimpressed, but it turns out I can.
