Do you know that there are more cell phones in The United States than people? The one that I have drives me up the wall, not the phone, but the ignorant ninnies that continuously attempt to reach me to offer the mostly junk they have for sale. There are laws against most of these calls, but no one making them has ever been prosecuted, so meh!
That cell phones are a grand tool to use appropriately is undeniable. Keeping tabs on the young’ uns, being but one. For auto, breakdowns is another. Back up charts and approach plates in bugsmashers, as well as Airliners, are an enormous safety benefit.
Law enforcement has apprehended and convicted many due to the GPS feature of a persons cell phone placing them at the crime scene of robberies, hit and runs and even murder. WOW. A noted author of an earlier time expressed my feeling concerning the use of phones. He is his take from George Whitten:
Mark Twain was once asked to record a Christmas message on an early gramophone. This is what he said:
"It is my heart-warm and world-embracing Christmas hope and aspiration that all of us, the high, the low, the rich, the poor, and admired, the despised, the loved, the hated, the civilized, the savage--every man and woman of us all throughout the whole earth--may eventually be gathered in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace and bliss, except the inventor of the telephone."
Pardon the interruption, but I just received a call on my cell from an exuberantly ignorant caller offering me a significantly reduced rate on my credit cards. Allegedly the caller had checked my credit and was using the results to reward me grandly. Having received some version of this call over one trillion times, I immediately hung up. One reason is that I pay my cards in full before the due date, thus paying zero interest.
If you would like to know my opinion of such calls and callers, re-read Mr. Twain’s beautiful hope for the hurting masses of our world.
The learned possessors of Doctor of Theology Degrees assure me that even inventors of the telephone are candidates for the Grace of God offered in Jesus Christ, I find it hard to believe the abusers of my privacy via bugging me on my cell phone may somehow be in heaven.
