I've threatened to put a box by our front door and demand that anyone entering must put their phone in that box and not look at it again until they leave.

I don't usually carry one.

It's bad enough I have to answer
the phone when I'm at home.

There are times I just don't get the whole texting thing. Back and forth, back and forth. All that needs to be said can be said in a 1 minute phone call but nooooo.... just send me 20 texts instead.

I hate phones. I often tell people please don't think I'm being rude but... my phone is for MY convenience so if I don't answer your call or text right away (or at all) please understand.

In the event of emergencies, no need to worry, all you sheep have phones and will make the call. We have now bred a society that cannot interact in face to face conversation, cannot sit and eat a meal without texting, cannot function without tweeting to the world they are having a great bowel movement. I think it's sad.
I couldn't do that stuff anyhow. Having a cell phone actually helps me communicate better.

Unless of course you're 1800 miles away and the reactor has gone into standbye. Or your mother starts having chest pains in the middle of the night. Or your grandson wants to tell you about the B he got on his Science test today. Or the GF just wants to text an ILU in the middle of a busy day.

What is sad is not having anybody to share your life with, regardless of the technology you use.
