Default Re: Cell phones.....how do you cope with them?

I, too, like having a cell phone for emergencies or to tell somebody I'll be late, but that's about it. We bought new phones in February and I've had 5 calls! Three were from DH and two were wrong numbers. I had to make a little label and tape it to the phone to remember my number. I have 4209 "rollover" minutes accumulated! If you're in Little Rock, come on by and use up some of my minutes!

What I don't like is going out to eat with someone and having them answering their phone every few minutes. There's no way to have a nice lunch and conversation when they're always talking to someone else.

I still can't get used to people "talking to themselves" in stores with those earpieces.

Today was the ultimate in "cellphone buffoonery" - yakking away on her cell in the LIBRARY - of all places. Now I can die because I have seen it all tee-hee.
