My Love Hate Relationship with the Cell Phone

phone 300x258 My Love Hate Relationship with the Cell PhoneI’m a nosy person. I pretend like I don’t give a crap what’s going on around me, but dammit. I do.

That’s why, when someone takes a phone call in the coffee shop, I am pretty much screwed. Here’s the thing– I don’t answer my phone in the coffee shop. It’s all loud in here, and it just doesn’t really seem like the right place to talk to anyone–business or no.

I actually hate talking on the phone to pretty much everyone except my mom. I am all about the texting, though– don’t get me wrong. If you saw the ridiculousness that is my texting every month, you’d probably make fun of me.

What I want to know though, is– why does the guy next to me insist on making a sale via his cell in the middle of Starbucks? I am just trying to write a damn book, and he’s got me all interested in lighting fixtures.

WHY DO I CARE?

I don’t know– but dammit… I do.

    I loathe talking on the phone. In fact, I avoid it at all costs. I order pizza online. That’s how much I hate the phone.

    Yet, like you, the people around me are always on one. Coworkers will have personal conversations at their desks. “Hi, I can HEAR you. Sorry about that rash.”

    I don’t understand it.

  2. I am with you! I usually don’t like talking on the phone. I’m too easily distracted. Texting is wonderful, unless you need to have a lengthy conversation.

    We were at Buffalo Wild Wings Friday to watch the World Series. Of course it was crowded. One of my many trips to the restroom found me waiting in line. One woman was talking on the phone in her stall. 3 of us came and went and she was still on the phone! So maddening. If I am talking to someone and I know they are in the bathroom, I’m hanging up.
