ARE YOU IN JAIL YET??? A while back a friend of mine made a comment about his cell phone. I said, "I didn't know you were in jail." he said, with a puzzled expression, "What do you mean?" Me "Well, you just mentioned a CELL phone, so guessed you were in jail." He didn't appreciate the humor.
Have you noticed how many of them things there are around? Yep, I have one also, as does MLWFAE. Mine is mostly on the dresser, turned off. Hers is mostly in a pocket on her purse, built for a cell phone, also turned off. Still, as we drive the highways and byways of this country, you can see them glued to peoples ears, or people are distracted sending a text message. While driving, or shopping, or even in a restaurant eating. Do you suppose, if all those people HAD to put their phones on the dresser, or even in a purse pocket, turned off, and leave them off for at least 30 days, the amount of car wrecks would go down? They would realize there are actually other people on the highway, or in the stores shopping also, or in the restaurant eating. Or in the family? Would the pollution in the air clear up, if all those messages weren't being sent? Would the cramp in their hands go away? Maybe the population of the insane wards would increase as people went into withdrawals, or the use of real CELL phones would increase as people were sent to jail for committing a crime to curb their frustration. In order to get out of the Ward or the Jail, would they have to sign up for CPA meetings? And, no, that does not stand for Certified Public Accountant. But with them in Jail or in the Ward, there would be less people on the road for me to have to watch out for. Maybe then I could pay more attention to eating my Ice Cream Sundae.
