This May Shock You!

I'm pretty much convinced that I could survive without a cell phone. *GASP* I know right? Why do I think this? Well because I didn't even realize my cell phone was missing for 4 days until my friend tried to call me and then called the home phone and asked why I didn't pick up my cell phone.
I finally remembered where I had it last and it was dead in my purse. After 4 days I wasn't surprised. I actually felt bad for it because it wouldn't even come on. It wouldn't even let me use it after I plugged it in. It kept telling me that it was charging it's battery, so I left it alone to sulk.

Half the time I forget to take it with me. Just ask my husband who will try to call me only to have my cell phone ring right next to him! LOL!
I only know how to use the phone part and almost always manually put the number in because it's too much trouble trying to figure out how to get to my address book.

So tell me, could you live without your cell phone or are you attached at the hip? LOL!
(Don't bother trying to wipe your screen of finger prints, they're on my phone! LOL)
Love you my friends!

  1. The only reason I have a cell phone is so my teen girl can contact me wherever I am and vice versa. Other than that, I could live without it. I would love to do away with my land line, but have to have it to have internet. Actually it is cheaper to have internet, phone and cable than to have internet only.

  2. hahaha that's too funny! I tried to wipe the smudges off my laptop screen as I was just about to read what you wrote about them being on your phone! LOL

  3. TOTALLY a woman after my own heart! I have a net 10 phone and rarely use it. I run out of service days before minutes on a regular basis! I can't text, can't take pictures with it and only use it when I remember to take it with me! My hubby got a work phone recently so we gave his old throw away net10 phone to my DD to play with. SHE, at age 10 was showing me how she could text message! YIKES! Glad they have it to play with and not for real! Enjoy it for as long as possible! I know I am! Being accessible 24/7 is WAY over-rated!

  5. Lol...I was so trying to wipe my screen. KIdding. I probably could go a few days without it too. Not forever, because as soon as I got rid of it my car would break down. murphy's law...or something like that. LOL

  6. Ok, so I am ashamed to admit that my cell phone and I are attached at the hip! I take it everywhere with me, it sits beside my bed at night. I check my email on it, my blog, facebook and even play games with it. Yes, I know I have a problem. No, I don't intend to do anything about it ;)

  10. I pretty much always take it with me wherever I go. I rarely use it, but it's there in case my mom or my family need to talk to me.

    However, do I remember to turn it on? Not always, so it does no good. Do I remember to turn it off? Not always and it dies and then it's no good.

    But hey, it's there with me!!!

  11. I can live without my cell phone, but don't tell my husband. Right now, he is not happy that I got texting and internet without his approval. However, he'll eventually get over it.

  12. I have an iPhone and love it very much!! As it is cheaper to use my mobile phone rather than the home land-line phone, I use my mobile all the time. My phone is full of "apps" which include the weather, my email, face-book and games (I am a little old for this, but it keeps my occupied when I am waiting in queues) - so I am very attached to it - sadly!!

  13. We got rid of our landline and went to cell phones only. So, yes, I can't live without it for long!

    BTW, so glad I'm not the only gal who would resort to using feminine wiles on her hubby to get a dress!

    Have a great day!

  14. I COULD live without my cell phone. My husband is always trying to call me and I never have it on. The only people that have my cell number is my husband and kids. I don't go out much and I never think to turn it on. My husband says, "I got it for you in case of an emergency, but I guess you're the only one who can have an emergency, because we can't ever get ahold of you." I just smile! He is the one who wanted to get me one.

  15. I am so just like you. I hardly use it unless my kids are out somewhere and so am I and then inevitable it usually goes dead so they still can not get a hold of me. Phones are not my favorite thing anyway. So, my cell phone is very lonely too. :)

  16. Since we don't have a regular home phone, we use cell phones. I sometimes don't take mine but try to.

  17. I forget and leave mine on all the time! LOL, I hope your little phone recovers!

  18. By the way, you are caught up to me again my friend - knew it wouldn't last - LOL!

    I MUST have my phone at all times! We got rid of our landline a few years ago, so only use cell phones (we saved so much money). My phone is our home number. So I always keep the phone with me, turned on and charged up. Hubs and I talk to each other all the time on our phones when one of us is out and about - we always have a question!

    And I have had car troubles before where I needed a cell phone to use. Also, I want to be accessible in case school has to call me about son (emergency or illness).

    I do think it's nice if you can do without it though! But I guess at this point I would be worried about emergencies. Even my Dad has a cell and has had to use it several times.

    Hope you are having a great week my friend and feeling all Christmasy again! Big you're-a-corded-phone-girl-livin'-in-a-cell-phone-world hugs!! :)

    Oh and I finally have my post up!

  19. Too funny! We don't have a house phone so I kind of have to use the cell, but I'm not a phone person. Sometimes I'll dig it out of my purse and there will be 5 missed calls on it. I never remember to take it out of my purse. But when I need it I need it so I always try to keep it charged. Try being the key word here.

  21. LOVE my phone!!! It's attached to me most of the time. We don't have a home phone and since May my cell is a BlackBerry with all 4 email addresses and Facebook and internet and my work calendar! Keep it in my pocket if I have one. Love my laptop too!! But it doesn't go EVERYWHERE.

  22. Actually I could live without mine. I only use it so my kids and hubby can get in touch in case of emergency or something important they want to tell me. Sometimes I go days without turning it on. I still don't know how to send a text. Geeze I am old!
