Resisting the Inevitable

You might surprised to know that I do not have a "smart"phone.

Reasons to continue without one:

*Cheaper cell phone bills
*Not being at everyone's beck and call every moment of every day.  I can't read my email on my current phone; it's nice to be unplugged part of the day.
*I don't feel like learning something new. First, there's the choosing of the phone-- I'll be choosing from what seems like a bajillion options for android phones or the iPhone. After that pain-in-the-butt decision, there will be the learning how to set it all up and such--

Things I would rather do than learn how to set up and use a new phone:

*Go on a date with this guy:

[Bachelorette contestant, Bentley. Trust me, he's a slimeball.]

*Spend a month looking for a nickel in poopy diapers (Yes, I've done this, and it's gross, even with the gloves. And no, I didn't find it.)
*Rinse our septic filter. (No, I've never done it.)
*Pay bills, including write the check for our annual taxes.
*Have a colonoscopy
*Pour lemon juice in freshly-chewed fingernails

The appealing aspect of getting a smartphone:
*Being able to keep up with my email on-the-go
*Being able to use the Internet anywhere
*Having better ringtone choices (Seriously--the ones I have are just awful.)

All things considered, I am feeling the call. I know a smartphone is in my future. I know that once I've got it all set up, I'll be like all the other smartphone owners who say, "I don't know how I ever lived without it."

How about you? Do you have a smartphone? If so, could you live without it? :)

  1. That's what I don't like about Disqus either. Hope you get to teach that Google class! We never had fun classes like that when I went to school back in the olden days of the 60s and 70s.
