Yes, I know you would say it is sensible to carry one in case I fell and couldn't get up - or what if a bear appeared? Ha! I'd much rather feel free - of all the extra stuff of today. I've done my job, and brought up my kids to the best of my ability without any of us carrying a phone. I have friends. Once in a while we talk on our phones. I'd much rather communicate in person or through the e-mail system and internet.
Told you I am rebellious and will be until my end. In the meantime, no phone in my pocket when I go for a stroll. NO! Thank goodness there is no law that I have to carry one. I would be a criminal for sure.
Yes, I have one - for when I travel so I can easily call AAA in case of a breakdown or flat tire. My phone cost $12.99 and I got 400 minutes to use within 14 months all for $99.99. I will NEVER use even half of those minutes, but I will be safe on the road. I don't care one click about having a status symbol in my pocket. My phone isn't sparkly, or pink or silver. It's black. Plain black and no case. So, I'm up-to-date and not out of touch with the real world, am I? I even know my number so I can call me. And sometimes I don't answer the house landline. Why? Just because I don't feel like talking.
