    Actually, I Resent It Being Smarter Than I

    It can do so many things that I dimly understand but I paid for something that's smarter than I.  How dumb can that be?  Well, on the other hand, who would want a phone dumber than them?  After all, it's supposed to save me time, isn't it?

    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...

    I Don't Even Have A Cell Phone!

    You heard me right, I don't have a cell phone. I dislike being so easy to get a hold of just by simply dialing a few numbers.

    Avoidance

    I always have my mobile phone with me.  I changed my ringtone once and have never had any need to again, as it never has been off silent.  Everyone contacts me via it- past and present, as if I don't answer home phone, evidently I want to be contacted via my mobile...
