    I Got It Because I'm Often Away From Home

    And now everyone assumes it's my method of communication of choice.  I keep hitting the speaker phone button.  I can't carry it & do the work I do.  I loathe listening to other people's conversations on the street & don't want mine to be overheard as well...
