Queen's Meme #86 - The Cell Phone Meme

Ring Ring! Viiiibbbbbbbrrrrraaattte. Buzzzzzz Buzzzzz
It's Mimi on the line. Electronic gadgets have taken over our lives it seems. I can't go anywhere without seeing someone talking on a cellular phone or fixated on one of the newest toys. Doesn't it annoy you? On the other hand, how did we ever get along without them?
Call or text 1-800-Bloggingham. We'll chat!

Her majesty, Queen Mimi of Bloggingham, hath issued her weekly royal decree. To participate, simply sign in at The Queen's Meme and try to answer and share the questions every Tuesday.

1. How important is a cell phone in UR life? – I like the convenience of anyone getting to me in an emergency. Other than that it’s of no importance at all.

2. R U addicted to UR cell phone? – You have got to be kidding. Stemming from my years as a telephone operator. I HATE TELEPHONES. They are to be used for necessary communications or not used at all.

3. R U a texter, an emailer, or a photo sender? – Oh please, see above. In self defense I have learned to text one granddaughter because she apparently can’t talk so I have to text answers for her to see the answers at all.

4. In the normal course of a day, about how many times do U touch UR cell phone? – Once and on rare occasions twice.

5. R U guilty of distracted driving? – I’m guilty of distracted living.

6. What is the 1 app never invented that needs to be made for UR cell phone? – How to eliminate people I don’t want to talk to before the darn phone rings.

7. What annoys U the most about cell phones these days? - Loud talkers who don’t seem to realize that we really don’t need to know about your last visit to the gynecologist or a chew by chew description of their last meal.

The absolutely worst things about cell phones is that they have almost eliminated that wonderful invention:  The Answering Service.  You could hire people to answer your phone for you and you only had to to talk to one person to find out all the people you were going to ignore.  It also means that one of the best musicals ever is now passe, but let's hear it one more time for Sue's Answerphone where the Bells Are Ringing and where you can find a lovely love song that should never be interrupted by a ringing phone
