LOL I feel bad for the people that really can't survive without one. My god what would the world do if we somehow were hit by a massive EMP burst from space that set us by to the tech level of the late 1800's? Okay I watch "Doomsday Preppers" to much.

I forget my phone in my Camelbak for weeks... a friend will call me and say "why didn't you respond to my text?" Uh because I never look at my phone and so don't text me anymore!

I sat at a meeting yesterday, all the people had a laptop, a tablet and one of two smart phones... me nothing. I actually paid attention to the discussion...

I usually take pencil and paper to meetings... and can usually sum the darn things up in about two sentences. Meanwhile I think some of my co-workers are busy playing tetris or something.

What's a cell phone? Actually, I end up leaving mine at home about half the time when I go out.

Was the meeting worth taking notes in, or should you have been playing Tetris?
