Living With Phones

August 14th, 2011

Currently cell phones are so much a part of our lives that it is almost impossible to imagine life without them. If we forget our phone at home we panic. If your child doesn’t answer her phone, we panic. What if someone needs to talk to me? Why isn’t my daughter answering? Of course the answers are, “If someone wants to talk to you badly enough, they will call later.” Or, “I guess my daughter’s battery finished or she is too busy right now to pick up.” This panic is just a function of how much we have come to depend on these little, powerful devices.

Phones have truly infiltrated our lives and lifestyles. We no longer need to plan ahead a time and place to meet. We can always find each other with our phones. We no longer need to wait at home for that “important” phone call. Whoever it is (maybe Mr. Right?) will contact us even when we are out and about. Need some information while traveling? No need to pull over and find a pay phone with a phonebook and have the exact change. Now all information is at your fingertips at the press of a few buttons.

And our phones are not just phones, either. Almost every phone today comes with a camera, a GPS, a calendar; alarm; phone book; you name it; only your imagination is the limit.  All these devices help us have more productive, interesting, creative, convenient and fun lives. The addition of a camera/video can help your children purchase clothing that you approve of from the comfort of your home or office. Moms no longer need to chaperone their daughters during shopping trips to make sure their purchases earn the “mom stamp of approval.” Phones with all these extra attachments are amazing devices that have made and will continue to make our lives easier in so many ways.
