I hate mobile phones. I especially dislike all the attached functions that go along with them. I want a phone that is just that, a phone.
I'm doing a construction job and ALL the workers were continually stopping work to answer phones. Gives me the pips. They get upset when I ask them to turn them off and concentrate on the job they are getting paid to do.
Then there was the young female (typed "lady" but decided to change it) in a supermarket today that I saw shopping with one hand while telling everyone around her all her current activities. She ended up in front of me at the checkout still talking and using one hand to slowly put her goods up for scanning. She never stopped talking as she retrieved her purchases, paid by credit card ( which was presented after all her goods were in the trolley) using the one free hand. The last I saw of her was in the car park, still chatting away while loading the goods into a Pitt St tractor. I didnt wait to see if she put the phone away when she drove off. I doubt that she did.
Then there is texts. I dont use them nor do I want that facility on my phone.If someone leaves one on my phone then it will not be read. I get annoyed when someone breaks off a discussion with me to answer their phone. I let it show too.
All that then you get the bill. The biggest part of my phone bill is "calls to mobiles".
WAR on mobile phones.... please.
Give me the good old days when a phone was a phone, not a camera or a media centre.
