I'm one in a million!

Really, don't you believe me? I could be one in a trillion or maybe a ka-zillion! I'm the person (my husband and I so that's two people) who do not, I'll repeat that DO NOT use a cell phone.We have a landline and it serves the purpose. Here are some facts: * We don't get a lot of calls, thankfully * We both hate talking on the phone, it was a big part of all my jobs * I'd much rather send an e-mail, which serve as proof of conversations if necssary * I'm not important enough to have a phone permanently attached to my ear and hope I never will be But.....I do own one - for one reason only - emergency only. When bad weather hits and the nice man on the TV says, "Go to your safe place" I'm taking the cell phone with me so that when power goes out I'll be able to know if the threat of tornado still exists. Oh, I have used it for something else - We got a new Panasonic phone with all kinds of cool stuff and I wanted to test out the features so I had to call the house phone with the cell phone. Other than that, I'm one in a million and I know my place in the world...thank goodness.

You're not alone. My husband and I both have cell phones but use them only to call home when one of us is away. We can't be reached via our cell phones. We don't send or receive text messages, either. We're content with the situation and are not to be pitied.

@AbbyGreenhill If they do, I don't care. Once I was in Berlin with a group of students who all had cell phones, of course. The teacher who had organised the tour also had one and they all exchanged numbers in case someone got lost. This is sensible, of course. I had only a minor function in the tour organisation and so it was no problem that I wasn't included. Some pupils asked me what I would do if I were alone somewhere and something happened to me. I said that there would always be a young one nearby with a cell phone and for 1 Euro they'd certainly allow me to use it for a local call or even call for me.

I love your post because it could be me. I do have young children at home so I have one so that when I am away at a dr apt or the store, I can be reached by them. My husband and kids have the number and nobody else. I refuse to have my meal out interrupted by somebody that thinks what they have to say is more important than my steak.
