Days without mobile phone.
Mobile phones are working once again.
I should have written this post just after the next day of my last post, though I was busy with my crazy life. Now everything is back to normal. I got some time, let me continue from where I left.
I was saying they just suspend it on some specific days, like on religious holidays for security measures. It all started from this Eid. However, people here are quite understandable and managed somehow. Or one can do nothing else except grinding his teeth in such situation. We are getting used to it.
You know what, in reality, it just seems like sky will fall off or our world will collapse if there will be no mobile phone.
Believe me, nothing happens. And nothing will happen as you think. You can easily survive a day or two without it. You were born without it. There were no where ten years ago. So what's a big deal !!
Overly attached mobile user ! Huh!
Hahaha ...sorry......I was pulling your legs. Ding dong. :D
You may not believe it, I got mine just two months ago on public demand. Mean to say, everyone around me used to give me weird look, like I am some kinda Amish or Dervish in their world. "How come you don't have a cellphone?" was almost everyone's question. "Call me at my land line"..... I used to answer. "No, cell phones are more better."
My point was when I have land line then what's the need of another kharcha. They are not free stuff, right? OK.........just another extra karhcha.
"No one will remember you." Can you believe people have even told that to me. Well, those who want to remember me will remember me. They know very well how to contact me.
You can''t win with these people !
Finally, I have got one. Though funny thing is that it serves more the purpose of an alarm clock, a calender, a calculator, and FM radio rather than a phone. I hardly put money/ credit in it.LOL.
I am just telling you my story. No wonder, it has totally changed the outlet of our way of communication. In this fast paced world no one has time to call on me. And there is another trend texting, which is quite cheap then regular calls. You can run, you can hide but you can't escape my SMS !
Well, again there is nothing wrong in using it either. This really brings people closer. I reckon people are more closed than before. Especially in my culture it is not just helping so many romeo and Juliette in staying connected, people who were not able to make calls, now talk easily via texting in cheap rates. Even so many overseas calling plans. Unlimited minutes are also here.
So what is wrong in it ? Stay connected.
Just make sure you hang it up while you are driving or talking to me. Talking to me is more importabt one.
Oh yes, babe ! It pisses me off.
When I am talking with you face to face, what on this earth you are texting ?
Look at me ! A hot chick is in front of you and saying somethin'
Turn this thing off !!!!!!!!!!
No I can't !
Give it to me !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Needless to say, ignoring me like this can be pretty dangerous than talking and driving.
Question : Can you turn your mobile phone off for one day ?
