I simply can not believe what I did today. I was driving down the road when a lady standing on the curb reached into her purse to grab her cell phone. I don't know how but somehow the phone flew out of her hand and landed in the road right in front of me. I am so ashamed of what I did next. Out of instinct I swerved and avoided running over her phone. I just can not believe I had the opportunity to rid the world of a cell phone and failed to do so.. I truly now regret taking that defensive driving course years ago.

Cell phones in the street should be listed as an endangered species………………

However instinct told you that the lady might step into the street to get the phone…………..

Mutt-I'm rather disappointed in you. I do hope you mend your ways.

It probably wouldn't have hurt it anyway. It's amazing how indestructible they can make a device that produces such astronomical profits only when it works.

It's obvious that the problem has to do with your brain matter being clogged by all that stinky cheese and not enough leafy green vegetables. You know it's true. Don't make me come over there.

Hilarious but it's in our subconscious nature. If I could take and break all the cell phones from people texting and driving or texting and walking I would. Honestly I don't know if this technology has help or harmed us. I long for the days when the only contact was in person or by house telephone. Sigh and so it is.
