Get A Cell Phone Or We Are All Gonna Die

Get A Cell Phone Or We Are All Gonna Die

by Gina Valley

Did you know that people somehow managed to live for thousands of years without cell phones?  Crazy, huh?

I don’t know how they did it.

What’s more is that there are even people today who don’t have cell phones.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

If we didn’t have cell phones, how would our teens text from the bathroom that they need more toilet paper?

If we didn’t have cell phones, how would I call from our driveway to have someone bring out my purse, because I forgot it and I need my ID, because I’m on my way to workout?

If we didn’t have cell phones how would we call our kids to come downstairs to eat dinner?

If we didn’t have cell phones how would my son, while sitting 2 seats down from me at his sister’s graduation ceremony, text me during the keynote speech with emergency requests, like “Can I get Tetris?”?

If we didn’t have cell phones how would we find new things to get mad at people for, like not charging their cell phone or for not being reachable every second of everyday no matter where they are?

If we didn’t have cell phones, what would our kids beg to play with while waiting forever at the doctor’s office?

If we didn’t have cell phones, how would we ever find each other again when we get separated at Costco?

If we didn’t have cell phones how would we take pictures of people doing goofy things and instantly send it to them, just in case they forgot that they did that?

If we didn’t have cell phones when would we ever use the phrase “Can you hear me now?” or “Will you call my phone?  I can’t find it.”?

If we didn’t have cell phones, how would we text lies about when we left and how soon we’ll be there?

If we didn’t have cell phones, what would we wave at concerts?

If we didn’t have cell phones, how would we deal with the angry birds?

If we didn’t have cell phones, how would we ignore each other while we’re waiting for the server to bring us our food in restaurants?

If we didn’t have cell phones, how would I be able to instantly Google what year The Black Eyed Peas came out with I Got A Feeling, and prove that my friend, Tom, is so wrong?

If we didn’t have cell phones how would we get consistent commentary, complete with photos, on what everyone we know is eating?

Clearly, cell phones are the only thing keeping us from extinction.

Plus, I hear that some of them can be used to make phone calls now.

Laugh Out Loud!

What would you add to this list?  I’m sure there are countless vital roles cell phones play in our lives that I’m forgetting. Shoot me a comment.  I’m looking forward to hearing your ideas.

Thank you to  @amberrisme and to @Bipolar2happy for inspiration for this post.  Nothing like a toilet paper discussion to get the creative juices flowing.  No pun intended.

  • This made me laugh. I have to admit that I do some of those things, particularly the Costco one… LOL. My husband has the uncanny ability to get lost in that store. It’s the ONLY way to locate him. 🙂

      Without cell phones we would never be able to make it out of Costco together! Even my older kids bring theirs. We’d still be wandering around in there otherwise!
      So glad to share a giggle with you!

    Gina, I WAS one of the fortunate few who survives without a cell phone, I have a land-line and an answering machine. But now that you have pointed out all the many uses, I see that a cell phone could solve all my life’s problems. 😉

    Although, I have to admit… I probably couldn’t survive without my lap-top. I think I would just turn into a pile of goo… AAAHHhhaaa, I’mmMelltinng… (Know what I mean?) See ya’ next time…
