Okay, I did it, I broke down today and bought my first cell phone. I hope I do not regret it. As I have gotten older, I have become increasing worried about what might happen if the car breaks down or if there is an emergency. Really, I hate phones, and have put it off for as long as I could.
One place I will not take the cell phone is the church. Every weekend, the cell phones go off at Mass. I warn people, even threaten $50 fines, but to no avail. People are texting and talking on phones at movies,too… a terrible distraction.
There is a law in DC now that anyone holding a phone to his or her ear while driving with face a hefty fine and ticket. People are dying because they area addicted to their phones.
The kids are nuts. Recently two girls I know were both texting messages to each other, even though they were in the same room! Could they not have just as easily talked to each other? Sure!
Goodness, look at me rant!
