Survey shatters technology assumptions - P.S.
In Response To: Survey shatters technology assumptions ()
I have a cell phone. I don't like cell phones. Result: it remains on at all times [something my daughter demands], but I don't answer calls made to it.
I recognized the need when I was employed and burned rubber on the New York Thruway between Albany [the state capital], and New York City. My daughter nagged me into getting one.
I had to use it only ONCE under the circumstances where it was deemed a necessity [I am not going to discuss how I was on my way from New York City to Albany and missed a key turnoff. This led me through Connecticut and other unfriendly environs. I had to call my daughter from my cell phone because I had no money to pay for a room in the parking lot of the hotel where I ended up. She drove to my rescue, and my sister ended up paying for the room where me and my daughter spent the night].
Remember, however, this occurred only once. Hmmmm. On telling this story, it has occurred to me that once was enough. Moving right along. I do not respond to calls made to my cell number, regardless of whom makes them.
Thanks to 'upgrades', I now have a camera phone. WOW! I am still not using it. If anyone thinks I am backward, stubborn, uninformed, or whatever, join my daughter who fits into all the categories the article mentions.
