I agree that folks just get crazy with cell phone usage then expecting the rest of the world to be just as obsessed.

I have one that I use as a work line. At some point, I realized it was dumb to have two phones and I really am not a chatty person on the phone. Ditched the land time years ago.

But once folks know its a CELL phone, they think its ok to call whenever and heaven forbid you don't call back immediately. I had to tell people that YES I turn it off or silence it when needed.

Texting is useful but also over used. I am sorry but I can't explain my life issue via text. And text slang.... I just reply HUH? They do it again, I say HUH?

Answering the phone, any phone is a necessary evil IMO, interrupting my fun. Mostly i let it go to message and try to return with another message vs talking to the human.

Right now i'm getting ready to go out with some friends to the beach, listening to my new killer stereo full blast, and playing on the forums till they show up. I'm having fun fun fun and can barely hear myself think the music is so loud. No phone call is going to disturb my little reverie or any other fun i am having.

I honestly don' know what posesses any rational human to carry a cell phone. You would need to pay me a large amount of money to do that.

Priceless moment brought you by youtube..


It's bad enough when you're reminded before the movie starts to silence your cellphone in a theater. Fine in my state for cellphone violation while driving is $124. If you have CDL (Commercial Driver's License), the fine is $2750. Have also seen reminder stickers on cellphones not to text and drive. Wow...serious case of social Darwinism.


" *puts Mortal Kombat theme song on a CASETTE player*

Alright, cool dog, that's IT! Your probably bigger than me, but I'm more pig-headed.... FIGHT!!! But hey, your just saying that cos you never saw me naked, you'd probably switch

teams. They all do when they take a look at me!!! (humble arent I?)"

Puts real meaning into the phrase "Wait'll they get a load of me..."

Capn you and me in a steel cage at Wrestlemania. Middle finger salute to you my friend.

Yes, but where is the sponteneity? I find that many men can't handle phone conversations. Personally, as I think I've said before, texting is for 20 yr. olds. After that age, grow some balls and call the woman!

I will talk on a cell phone but texting drives me nuts. I prefer taking the time to talk and say what you have to say. I'll only text if I don't have time to talk on the phone. But I will not be texting when I'm on dates or when I'm with someone I care about. I was on a date last week the lady just text, text, text. Jeez what ever happened to put away your phones when you're on a date or out to dinner together? comes to show that being ill mannered is still in trend * smh

I happen to love to text. I think my most recent bill noted that i sent over 30,000 during the month. But that's because i have friends from all over the place that i never get to see. If i'm on a date though or with a girl that i'm seeing than i don't text unless we're just sitting around watching tv or something. And if i'm with a group of friends and i'm texting it's because i'm bored as ****. I don't care for stupid small talk...and i don't care to listen to people who decide it's time to **** about how much they hate work,their bf/gf or any other drama that's going on. It innnnnnstantly bores me. So i find better conversation with other people....But i also dislike text speek. LOLcat speek is pretty hilarious in the right circumstances but "ppl hu txt lyk ths" piss me off.

I'm a 47 yo man & don't mind it. I understand that most do it more so to acknowledge my email, so as not to be thought of as ignoring it, especially those I meet on here. I do it too & for the same reason, but let them know I'm mobile as to why it's so short.

Nah, the steel cage is very "passée". In the spirit of Cactus Jack, let's go with HELL-IN-A-CELL! With barb wire and flaming baseball bats, it'll be so hardcore 90's the crowds will love it. Better than Cena vs The Rock

See, that's EXACTLY the type of thing that bothers me. Why? Suddenly, your father, your mother, your friends, a girl your interested, becomes LESS important, less of something to deal with then "that guy you know you text once in a while"? My sister, for the rare times she is at home, usually ends up falling asleep on the couch next to me, when we're watching a movie (after the 5th time, it gets old, trust me, no matter how close I am with my sister since we were kids). I put the movie on, watch it, and talk to her. We used to talk and fool around a lot more than watch the actual movie, it was great. Now, though, I realise 15 mins in that shes not watching, and not talking; she's texting.
"Is it dull, want me to turn it off?""No, its fine"
"AM I dull, does my face suddenly repulse you and remind you of Jean Charest?" "Huhuh, yeah, let's do that..."
W...T...F...?
Like I said; drug. I think it eventually leads to broken bonds, in the sense that people who act that way, end up getting on the nerves, or pissing off, or just end up LESS close to someone they hold dear. I know my sis loves me, but that type of behavior is beyond me. Akin to letting go a huge burg in the middle of a wedding ceremony at church; fine if your 12, but kind of idiotic if your 33.....

So you're saying that i should instead just be bored with pointless small talk ? why ? I'm not going to talk to someone no matter who they are just for the sake of talking. I never said anyone is less important or anything like that. I barely talk to my family as it is *not for any negative reason. i just happen to be able to go months without talking to them and don't care* And when i'm with friends the last thing i care about hearing is how much they hate their work or wife/gf/bf....why should i care since they never take any advice given anyway and when i hang out with friends i want to be having fun or at least have a positive time not spend 5 hours all negative and mopey. Most of the texting i do is just when i'm doing my own thing and not hanging out with anyone anyways...

Why do you care if your sister texts if you're watching a movie ? just seems like you need a lot of attention if that bothers you so much. Maybe you pick lame movies that she's not interested in ? IDK ? I've never ended up having "broken bonds" with anyone because of my texting and i think anyone who "breaks bonds" with someone for texting is farrrrr too sensitive.

I like all the modern conveniences.
I'm not interested in going back to the stone age.
I have a cellphone because I don't have a landline.
The trick to all these modern conveniences (tvs,
computers, ipads, phones, cars, etc.) is to use them
in moderation.

I'm not addicted to anything. I can live without a
phone or a computer, I just choose not to.

I'm also not a fan of texting. I have a small phone
sans keyboard and it takes forever for me to send
simple messages. I can't be bothered.

One of the best things I like about my phone is I
don't have to answer it. It doesn't zap me or anything
if I choose to let it ring or go to voice mail.

Well...YES lol. Dont get me wrong, about complete strangers who give a flying crap, but friends? The whole point to friends is to care, or at least pretend to, even if you don't no? Unless I missed something? So texting in their faces, when you might be offending them, without knowing....
I kind of equate texting to burping at a table when 12 people are eating. Or like, pulling out your schlong when everyone is watching and going "Hey, I have this red button on it, you think its a bad sign?". It's not mean, its just...not appropriate, you know? Like certain things for certain situation. I think texting was invented when alone and you need to talk to someone, or for some important or emergency reasons. If your among a bunch of friends and not talking to them, texting other friends instead....maybe someone's in the wrong place? That's my point. I think people's views have shifted enough by the whole "addiction" factor. It's kind of like "Anytime, anyplace" now. It's become a NEED, for people, and most wont recognize it and admit its a problem. Like when I see my sister sleeping WITH her cell (I use her as an example, because she's the only person I know who would die before getting rid of her cell...) and wonder...what the hell?


Why do you care if your sister texts if you're watching a movie ? just seems like you need a lot of attention if that bothers you so much.

OH NO. Do NOT start with the "BASH the OP" stuff. I'll obliterate your logic to tiny iddy bitty pieces and be the most insolent son of a gun you'll ever have seen in your life. I don't care what you do, or anyone else does, I want to know the WHY. I didnt say you were a bad guy, and I didnt insinuate it, because you text. I just dont understand why you DO. And other people qho couldnt leave their cells at home on a sunny day. I dont care what she does or WHERE she puts her cellphone. But when I talk to someone, I expect to be answered to. Not ignored, not answered by someone who didnt listen to half what I said; My 4 year old does that, and its okay, BECAUSE she's 4. At 30, my sis should know better. People holding cellphones when I talk to them should too...

Aren't you doing the same thing if you're constantly texting? Do you do earth shattering things every minute in your life that can only be told by text? I don't need to pay for a pricey monthly plan to talk. And most people appreciate being told something in person rather than by a plastic box. But if talking to a human being is too scary for you, stay in your dungeon and avoid the human race.

I consider cell phones a "stupid meter".....no other device will expose your lack of rationality any better. I have watched two idiots text eachother back and forth non-stop for an hour, somehow it never occured to either of them to just call and end the conversation in two minutes. Since cell phones became popular, I get five times the phone calls from people than before, because they can call me from anywhere for any silly reason. Some people are so dumb, they will call you from their cell with bad reception and call dropping, when they will be home to use a land line within five minutes.....couldn't they just wait, or does the novel of talking while they drive just amuse them? Phone manners don't exist anymore, dumb asses will call me while they are enganged in other conversations, and think I don't mind them envolving me in a five way chit chat with strangers at a garage.... I don't even know who they are talking to at any given moment, because they are too stupid to mute the phone while talking to a second or third party.

Damn, this rant feels good!.....I need to bring it to a full orgasm, by grabbing the next person I see on a cell phone and kicking their ass.

I think I'll write a book on the subject.....I didn't even get started on "ringtones" or how these teenagers sound like a walking concert.......adults as well! No matter what you give a human, they wind find a way to abuse it.

I thought I was bad lol!! I don't sleep with my phone, although I do use it as an alarm. When I'm on a date the cell goes on vibrate and stays in my pocket! It is rude! I think the world can live without me for a few hours lol

I DO care about my friends. What i DON'T give a shit about is getting together in a situation that is supposed to be fun only to hear them go on for 45 minutes about their problems which are usually always the same and they never take any advice on it or make any changes to the situation. I really don't care about someone who has to go on a long ass rant about how their boss is an ***hole or their girlfriend/wife/bf/husband is such a ****/***hole. I also have really great conversations with people through text. If you can't do that then it sucks to be you i guess. And really ? i should come out of my "dungeon" ? what a ridiculous comment. I happen to be a very social and outgoing person. I just don't care for bullshit or people who are always whining about things that they never bother to change. It annoys me and it's boring. I'd much rather talk over text with someone who's positive and funny etc...than spend 2 minutes with someone who's idea of a social gathering is to **** about their life the whole time. Either fix it or STFU.

And Capn. Maybe what i said was a little out of line about you being needy....but how could i know ? you made it sound like you're like one of my friends...where if all the attention isn't on him and his not included in all the conversations he get's all pissed off. If you're not like that then my apologies. It's just what it brought to my mind.

And to whoever else said that they love language and so texting is a dealbreaker. You realize that not everyone who texts types like "how r u ?" right ? because i certainly don't so your assumption just makes you sound ignorant. You can be as literate as you want over text...or you can type stupid too if you want it's all up to the individual.

Crap, I had to restart my entire post. Goes to show me to write on this thing when at work.
Anyways, condensed version

Apology accepted, taken. Nah, I'm not one of those drama-****y attention whores. I'm more like the typical *miss the 90's hard-rockn-roller almost biker ex-wrestling computer science guy* who doesnt get how someone can cuddle up more with their cells than an actual human being lol. I got nothing against cell phones per say, I always thought communicators like in Star Trek would be great, and its almost what a cellphone is, right? But the abuse, MAN, the abuse...I do really think that's its turning someone people, a lot of the younger generation, into a-social drones. When instead of laughing, one of my cousins looks at me and goes "lol" out loud, with a straight face, then turns back to talking on her cell....I dunno, its disqueting. That, or blue tooths is another beef. You go to a counter, talk to a secretary, or a delivery guy (I get a lot of those at work), he's looking at you straight in the eye, your telling him where to dump his cargo and he goes "Your an idiot if you think I didn't heat". Right before you answer something very much like *go cluck yourself*, he looks to the side and goes like "I told you Michael, I heard what you said to your mom! Oh, hi sir, where do I dump my cargo?"........
More an more, situations like that are appearing. You know multi-tasking, right? Cellphones allow us to do that, but I think people suck at it a LOT more than they think they do. In a relationship, well, I'm pretty allergic to cellphones and texting. Which, I see now, is apparently NOT a good thing for online dating lol. The number of messages from ladies I received asking my cell number, and me answering "I'm like Machete; Machete dont text" and never receiving a reply back makes me think I should get with 2012. BUT I HATE THE THING! lol.
