Nasty creatures. The interrupt my conversation with you; their ringing distracts me during meetings and movies.
They are as bad as desk-top telephones, when a ring brings out the gambling instinct in everyone – the bet that the incoming call is more important than the current conversation.
I am in the habit of turning my phone ringers off during a meeting, on the grounds that nothing is as important to me as your presence right now in my office. Call me old-fashioned …
I bought a cell phone two years ago when I felt it would have been valuable in helping a contact who was lost find me at the restaurant.
I rarely carry it, and turn it off as soon as I have reached the client site or the coffee-shop.
Cell phones do have their uses, I don’t deny that, but all too often we allow them to control our life.
Like the time you spent struggling for one hour over the layout of a fax asking to meet for lunch. Pick Up The Phone!
I have just had a most unpleasant run-in with my cell-phone service. I shan’t name the supplier because I don’t want to embarrass Telus.
But I do want to mention Andrew Cook of Compare Cellular.
