    How Aggravating!

    Sure cell phones are great when you're in the middle of nowhere and your car tire explodes, but jeebus christ! even when I talk to someone face to face I only have about a third of their attention because they're on their phone! people don't even notice the world around them... I...

    Here Goes My Popularity

    Well, by writing this I may lose some of my popularity from those of you who are pro-cell-phone.  No matter, it's who I am, and that's the idea here, right, to be who I am and not to worry about being popular. It's not like I really hate cell phones.  they are an...

    Paying For Toll Free Calls.

    this one makes me absolutely LIVID. Since most of the nation has switched to cell phones, why hasn't the cell phone industry kept up with that??? Why should we pay for a toll free call?  It is toll free. I will not be keeping my cell phone much longer as I do not have...

    Why?

    Why people like cellphones I don't know. I was given a cellphone by my boss, a week later my 3yo "broke it" . I have no desire what so ever to be connected to the world 24-7.  With three kids I barely have a minute to myself as it is, do I really want a...

    not hate but....

    It's strange for me that some people can spend half an hour or even more doing something with their phone like there is so much they can do with it. I don't bother to recharge it very often and forget it somewhere, or at home. Everybody sees this as a part of my absent-minded...

    Ramblings

    I actually hate all phones but I couldn't find an: I hate phones group and didn't want to start one. The thing about phones is you can’t gauge people’s facial expressions. This makes it hard for me to communicate. Also the person can’t see me making it necessary to make...

    All Phones

    Though I will admit they are useful from time to time. Where do I begin? I hate them. I only have one because places like the bank and real estate agency require a phone number (i don't use phones enough to bother with a land line). Also so work can call me when i'm out at lunch...

    Some People Are Dangerous

    I was almost run over in a parking lot the other day by some idiot talking on a cell phone.  Police really need to enforce the "no cell phones while driving" laws.

    I Despise Cell Phones.

    Password

    I can not get into my voice mail with out a password. And to get the password I was told I need a password. What does that mean? The phone was a gift so I have no thoughts what went on in the store when it was bought. Sounds like Catch 22 to me.

    Words Cannot Describe How Much I Hate Them
