    Oh Well to Technology

    i never had a cell phone(unlike everyone else i know). But then again, i hate talking on phones and answering calls. i'd rather talk to people personally, not by electronical means. so what if i'm not too good with "today's modern technology?"

    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...

    Totally unnecessary! I have one

    because I need it for my job, maybe twice a year. Other then that it's almost always shut off and I get truly annoyed when people call me on it, or text me. I DONT TEXT! EVER!

    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.

    I Despise Cell Phones.

    I have deep dislike for cell phones. They turn people into children with ADD. I hate it when someone starts texting right in front of me while I'm speaking to them. Unless it's some dire emergency whereby the other person can't wait ten minutes (and when does that happen...

    Smart Phones Are Pretty Darn Stupid

    Glitch, after glitch, after glitch, and another glitch before the next glitch. Yeah, they really frustrate me.  I know I need them though but they are so cheaply made it's almost intolerable.  I know iphones are worse though.  It seems like any technology that has the "smart...

    Calls At Inconvenient Times and Places

    I really hate having a cell phone. (shh, don't tell my family). I don't like being interrupted when I'm driving and that thing starts ringing. I try to ignore it. After a few minutes of silence it starts ringing again. I'm trying to concentrate on the road while digging in my...

    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...

    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...

    Words Cannot Describe How Much I Hate Them

    I abhor cell phones. Not the devices themselves, as I am always impressed by the technology that goes behind creating cell phones, but because of what it has turned everyone into: dim-witted, dependent, and self-important drones. I hate having a cell phone. I actually had to...
