My goodness, where to begin.

For the longest time, I have been anti-cell phone, at least for my personal use. I really appreciate when other people have them and can bail my sorry ass out of otherwise shitty situations. Like that one time in Hanoi... but that's a different story.

My biggest reasoning against getting a cell phone is that i don't want to become "that guy". We all know "that guy", he's the guy that gets a phone call during a movie, at the really intense dramatic part when the main characters are listening to see if they might just survive the impending disaster and since he's the ruler of the universe he has decided to share the results of his syphilis test with a now angry theatre full of rabid flesh eating monsters that want to show him where he can shove his syphilis infested, blistered and bleeding cock and oh yeah, just because it came back clean this time doesn't mean you won't get it from a guy named "Bruco" who makes you his bitch on a weekend layover in cleveland.

so i don't want to be "that guy". maybe my realization of "that guy"dom will allow me to not fall into that trappings that lead to such behavior. maybe not. maybe next time you're on a bus and over hear someone talking about how he's the illegitimate father of half of the nation's childern, that might be me.

anyway, please share your cell phone nonsense to help me feel a little better about me having one of my own.

My mother bought me one, and I hate it. I broke off the cover, but it still works.

I guess it's a handy thing to have, but I don't like it because it a) makes me feel like a yuppie, and b) allows said mother to contact me no matter where I am.

I hate it when people block their numbers, then don't leave a message so I don't know if I want to pick up the call or not.

The first week I got my cell phone, I had a flat tire---two miles from the nearest exit.

It's funny. In my family, I'm the most tech-savvy, and therefore I seem to be the most likely person to get a cellphone. But instead, my eldest brother gets a cell-phone first, then my other brother. I have yet to get one, and probably won't for a good while. We have plenty of payphones in this city anyways.

i've already decided that my parents aren't responsible enough to have my cell phone number. if THEY have it, then the rest of my extended family would have access to it.

i gave my number to my sister, on the faith that she wasn't going to tell paul and rae-ellen. hell, i don't want them to know i have a cell for a while.

right now, it's for personal friends and emergencies.

let's suppose my drug dealer roommate calls... needs me to so something to ensure a happy and productive drug deal household. and he kinda needs me to do it now. see, i want to be available to the people that will use my time responsibly, which is why i'm going out of my way to not pass my number around like it was your mother.

When you go to a movie or play or something, turn the ringer to vibrate. That way only you will know it's ringing; you can check the id to see if it's important or not.

I have a cell phone, and I'm quite against overusing it (even though my sister's life revolves around wireless communication-- it's her trade). To avoid being "that guy," I obtained the plan with the lowest amount of minutes so that I'm guaranteed to use the phone only in short conversations or in emergency situations. You might try that.

this is my plan as well. i really like the phone i got... it's a nokia 3585i, and nokia makes their shit super easy to use. i can hit the power button, and make it go to "silent" profile where it does just as you recommend.

I had a mobile phone for about five months. Then one night I was playing basketball on some gravel and I slipped over on some gravel and landed dead on it. It didn't survive. And, I got a corky.

I have one and find it to be really fucking useful.

It works great for coordinating rendezvous with friends.
It was the summer of love and I thank the lord above
Because the women took the lovin' over me
And just to gain her trust I bought a microbus
Because I sold off my personal property
A tye-dyed dress, she was a psychadelic mess
We toured to the north, south, east and west
We sold some mushroom tea, we sold some ectascy,
we sold nitrous, opium, acid, herion, and PCP
Now I hear the police coming after me
