I really wanted to talk about the telephone today and the use of them. Now days telephones are mobile devices which appear to be attach to peoples ears like "hairs on soap."Quote from the book , The Help. People just cannot let those little phones leave their hands and most are seen walking, standing , driving and sitting talking of these phones. WHEN DID EVERYONE NEED TO STAY IN TOUCH THAT MUCH. I guess they never heard the phrase "Absence makes the heart grow fonder." Oh and I really see RED when those commercial about a program where poor people can get phones paid by John Q Public. I was poor growing up and I survived not having someone else pay for a phone for my use. That money could be used in a much better way. Again, Vote for Kitty Justice for President to each such frivolous spending of our money.
I really HATE being subjected to someone else telephone conversation. I have this disturbing urge to grab the phone and fling it as far as I can while praying it falls apart when it lands. Also, I hate to go out to lunch with friends and have one of them, put their phone by their plate. Unless it is an emergency they are waiting to hear about, please put your phone out of sight. As I reached for one friends phone the other day, she grabbed it and placed it in her pocket. Maybe she saw the Urge come over me.
Voice mail was created to take a message to be heard when a better time and place presents itself. Or at least that what I thought. Foolish me.
Now everyone knows someone whom is on your call list that takes a full hour or two to talk too. It all begins with the comment "one more thing" and two hours later your ear has turned into cauliflower. Your back hurts and your arm is numb from holding the phone. I never call these folks who are on my list unless I have a good two hours to spend on the telephone. If I get off the phone before the two hours are over, I consider myself one lucky lady. I love these folks but know if I get on the phone, I am stuck. I have accepted their bad habit as part of loving them. I would surely call them more often if I knew I would be off the phone at a decent amount of time. I do not have to name names, as they know who they are.
That is why I prefer E-mail or as I call it Easy Mail. I get to write whenever I have time and the recipitant gets to read it when they have time. I really dislike the statement "I do not do e mail, I would rather call." NOT ME.
I do love to call and hear people voices but do not like to be CAPTURED.
The Kitty Justice is I would much rather call you twenty times a week than be Captured and have my body turn to stone from inactivity.
BTW Don't forget to give me your email address. LOL
Glad to get that off my chest, I do feel sooooo much better. LOL
