  1. I miss the good old days, when phones were attached to a wall.

    I have a phone but i barely use it.I only use it to take pictures mostly because it is hard to do that with a pc. My obsession is books. They must be molded to fit my hands i sometimes don’t hear people when they talk to me. because i get wraped up in my books.

    My phone is for–wait for it–making phone calls. OK, I do send texts, but that’s just a phone call with writing instead of speaking.

    • I understand that many people like them, and many people need them for one reason or another. I happen not to need one, and since I’m scatterbrained and always misplacing things, I don’t see the point in having one more small, easy-to-lose object to keep track of. It would be more a source of anxiety to me than a convenience. 🙂

  4. Cellphones are a godsend for deaf or hard-of-hearing people: texting (and email) is a revelation that you can now, finally, effectively communicate with other people.

    It’s a little better now that my hearing aids connect to my phone, so I can hear people, but in the bad old days I just dind’t communicate with people unless I was face-to-face, because those old landline phones had no volume control. (and due to a variety of factors, no one actually realized I was very hard of hearing until I was 16…)

    Phone calls are just people murmuring things continuously that I vae to guess the meaning of.

    Then again, I don’t do facebook or twitter on my phone either…

    • I’m also hard of hearing, and I hate talking on the phone. Not being able to see someone’s face when I’m talking to him/her means that I miss about half of what he/she is saying, more if the person is a mumbler who never learned to enunciate. I much prefer writing, text messaging, or email.
