Just to get a cell phone...

Ol' BillyJoeJimBob, he ain't the brightest bulb in the room...or the house...heck, the whole town, for that matter. Seems he got busy here last month drinkin' and plumb fergot t' pay the bill for his mobile phone. Since he doned spent up this month's welfare check in advance (bouncin' all them other checks drinkin' like he does) he was just gonna have to do without one. Anyway, I read in the paper this mornin' he was in jail (yet again). So I moseyed on downtown and paid him a visit to see what the heck he done this time. Turns out he threw a brick through the sheriff's living room window. I asked him, I said "Boy...why the heck did you do that? Was ya drunked up again?" He allowed as how no, he weren't drunk, it was all part of a plan to get a phone. So I asked him how gettin' throwed in the slammer was gonna get him a phone. And he told me. He said each and every cell there has a phone on the wall, and he figured since he couldn't afford to pay for his mobile, he'd just use a cell phone this month. I told ya he weren't very bright...

I tried to get one of those cell phones once. Turns out cells are rather insular communities... and they've got that darn selectively permeable membrane to keep pesky intruders like yours truly out. I wasn't desperate enough to go that route, though... I just picked up one o' them TracFones instead.

@JolietJake No kidding. I got in the habit of leaving my old flip phone home because some moron keeps giving my number out as hers, and now my boss is giving me grief because I left my new phone at home when I went to pick my daughter up at the zoo...
