Cell Phones

So when we left FL we decided to get me a cell phone, because it would be all handy dandy and people could call me… pssshh, yeah right. So I got this little dodabber and we put a $15 time card on it, and set it all up and when you call other people with the same service it’s ‘free’ except for the dollar for the first call of the day thing, and then when people that aren’t on the same network call, it’s that dollar a day charge, and then 10 cents a minute.

Well guess what?  I think I’ve used up about a dollar forty of the whole $15, and then all these weird calls from collection agencies for two other different people, and odd ball people at weird hours has sucked up just about all the rest of my money. So no, I don’t think I’ll be staying in the cell phone loop for very long.

I don’t want it, I don’t use it. I keep hitting the buttons on the side of it, and it does weird things.  I’ve taken many pictures by mistake.  It is just an odd and wonky device, that sucks up space. Even yesterday when the neighbors were helping us kitty rescue, the lady got a couple of jingles on her phone in her pocket, and she takes it out, and looks at pictures, and laughs, and shoots off texts left and right…. and I just don’t even know where people find the time for these little devices.  Her husband came up after work, and his went off with a loud ol song, and apparently you can set it to have different sayings, or songs, or rings, for different people that call you, and he knew just who was on the other end before he even had it out of his pocket!  I would like to think everyone I call now and again has their ringtones for me set to the Twilight Zone theme. Just sayin. 😛

    If I thought you’d ever call me, I’d set mine up for The Twilight Zone for you. 😉

      LOL I would maybe, but I am the worst phone person ever. Just about five minutes ago I tried answering another wrong number on my cell phone, and somehow I turned on speaker phone, and took a picture just trying to answering it! Some days I believe I was dropped off in the wrong century!!! :-/

    We have pay-by-the-minute cellphones, but they’re never turned on, so… mostly they’re not even charged. LoL! I don’t even know my cellphone number. That’s weird about the sales calls, though – we’ve never had that. :/

      Yeah, it’s like I’ve got a recycled number or something and I’m getting creditors calling for a Sharron, and a Lavana. So I don’t know if they are two different people that have had this number, or just one person had the number, and two people using it. Half of the creditors are automated systems so I can’t even tell the machines this isn’t their number anymore, so they just keep dialing back pretty much every Monday and Thursday. Sooo frustrating! And Lavana seems to have been very popular with the men, because I’ve gotten like six different calls from out of state from lots of random guys looking for her. It’s a running joke now that I’ve got ‘some hookers phone’. Meh!

    we also have unlimited talk and text. no internet. no smartphone. but as we don’t have a landline, our phones are very important. i do think that people use them too much and i feel sorry for people who are “connected” all the time. i’ve never gotten calls for someone else, an occassional wrong number, but no consistant calls. and i just have some random ringtone that came with the phone. at one time i had “hotel california” as my ringtone, but thats just because my kids set it that way and i didn’t know how to change it. lol. –karen
