More Shit SB Says to Her Friend, Sweden

I HATE cell phones. I would like to shove cell phones up people's asses. I especially despise personalized ring tones. Whenever one goes off in the office, I fantasize about beating the phone owner over the head with their phone until blood runs. Seriously.

I don't carry a cell phone. In fact, although we pay for me to have one, I don't have one that works and haven't for months (hubby took mine when his quit) so I don't even know where my sd card is.

I hate them with a passion. I don't want to be at everyone's beck and call. Texting would be ok and maybe I'll do that when I get a new phone. It's more pleasant. Look at it when you have a moment and feel like answering. I've had numerous people complain that we don't have voice mail on our house line. Maybe it's because we have a business line in the house that has it and everyone knows that. They can leave a message there if it's so important. Otherwise, get off my ass.
I don't always answer the phone when it rings. It's better that way sometimes. If I see it's not for me, why bother?

Jeannie,
I don't want to be at everyone's beck and call. Exactly what I always say. Yep.

Love you TONS!

I think cell phones are going to somehow be the downfall of mankind.

If it's any consolation, a lot of these people are so obsessed with using them that they continue using them while driving, even after hearing the dire warnings. Many of these people will die painful deaths when they "lose control of their vehicle" as it so often states in the newspaper. The problem is, they sometimes take good people with them.

Kathleen got me a smart phone, but I keep it in a closet and turned off 99% of the time. I've only used it twice so far, to get basketball scores in a restaurant. But nobody has my number. I get no calls, which is exactly the way I like it.

Watch a football game or a movie on a tiny 3-inch screen? Yes, it's amazing that you can do it, but to actually do it you have to be out of your mind. That's why I have my 5-foot wide TV in my man-cave.

On the other hand, the next time I try to check Duke basketball scores out in public, I hope no one tries to shove it up my ass or beat my brains out with it :)

You would crack up if you saw my current phone. Fee (Mrs J) dropped my iPhone in December. It has sat on a shelf since then (even though I'm insured and can get another - I keep forgetting to take it to the shop). For the last four months I have had the crappiest, cheapest Nokia, so outdated that I hide it under my hair when I'm on it. I dropped it in the road last week and now the back won't stay on. It has sellotape all around it like some old grandad's pair of glasses. I'm so classy! xx

Ms. Moon,
ME TOO!

Denny,
Clearly, you have GOOD SENSE. I already knew that about you.

My ex-husband bought me a cheapo cell to keep in my car, in case of road emergencies, and I never gave the number out and even refused to answer it when he called me.

Christina,
I love you. I just do.

I don't mind my cell phone but it is how others use theirs that bothers me.

agreed!

my boss is always on the goddamn phone. he was really REALLY excited a few years back when airlines were talking about letting passengers yack on their cellphones throughout all flights. um, horror factor eleven. he asked me what i would do if someone like him (meaning: a constant cell phone talker) sat next to me on a plane. i said i would INSIST on being moved, or i would beat the shit out of that person. seriously. who fucking wants to hear your STUPID CONVERSATION?! WHY SHOULD I BE PRISONER TO YOUR DUMB CHATTER? GET OUT. FUCK OFF! DIE DIE DIE! WE DO NOT WANT TO HEAR YOUR YAMMERING.

yes i am angry and on fire today. thanks for letting me rant. delete this comment if ya feel like it.

Drollgirl,
No way I would delete that shit. The way you rant, I think we were separated at birth. You know I love you!

I'd have to kill a motherfucker, sitting on a damn plane next to me, yaking the whole flight. I really would!
