Who’s with me?
I left Illinois for my home in central Missouri at around 1pm.
While listening to podcasts on my phone, I kept hearing the little ‘bing,’ ‘bing,’ ‘bing’ that notified me of new emails while I was driving.
I’m not going to read them. I’m driving, right?
So what good does it do me to keep hearing that little #*$)@# bing??
None. None good, that’s what.
Ever forgot your smartphone?
After the first few minutes of terror, doesn’t it actually feel kinda good?
I don’t know if you remember, but it wasn’t that long ago we used our phones for, umm, phone calls.
I think I might go back to that.
No email. No facebook. No tweets.
My phone will make calls.
And maybe texts.
And maybe Angry Birds.
But that’s it!
What’s the downside? What’s the worst thing that could happen? What’s the best?
Seriously, spend two minutes thinking about how different your life would be if your phone only made calls.
Two minutes. Don’t touch your #*$)@# phone. Just think.
Well? Not bad, eh?
Who’s with me?
Oh, and PS: Those new iPhone commercials? “If you don’t have an iPhone … then … you don’t have an iPhone.” It pains me to say this, but Apple? That’s pretentious and stupid and please stop it. Thank you. Please don’t have me killed.
