We don't have to imagine, They have an "OFF" switch, which we will activate this evening before our Christmas Eve Dinner. We will turn everything back "ON" Thursday......
Yes, it is great, because that is what we do here at the house. When we are eating, have guest over, etc.., there are no phones allowed, unless people are showing photos. Even if there is nothing going on, nobody is allowed to just sit on their phone all day and waste away, there is set times for this.Wouldn't it be great if people left their treasured phones turned off during family gatherings ? Those things have replaced family. I recall a time when the family got together and actually conversed - kids could carry on a conversation, and everyone caught up with all the goings on of other family members. Now, within seconds of arriving, their nose is stuck in a phone for their entire visit, without any awareness of others in the room. Thank goodness my wife and I aren't addicted to the thing.
Well that's stupid. Turn the damn thing off when you're not using it. My cell phone is for my convenience only. If I have an emergency I have a way to call out. If I don't want anyone calling me I turn it off.I can imagine Christmas without a cellphone. I can imagine every single day without a cell phone because I just might be the only person on Earth that doesn't have one and refuse to get one.
The landline rings just fine and I can take the call or not.
The last thing I want is someone (wife or anyone) pestering me with that thing ringing or to BS while I'm getting ready to hit a shot on the golf course or on the pool table...which is every day for one or the other or both.
It's always turned off because I don't need or want it so it doesn't exist. If there's an emergency, always someone within spittin' distance for me to use their phone. Trust me, I'm extremely happy and content NOT having one and never been caught in a situation where I wish I did. Who knows, the next shoulder I tap on to use their phone might be yours. I do live in GA.Well that's stupid. Turn the damn thing off when you're not using it. My cell phone is for my convenience only. If I have an emergency I have a way to call out.
