I will wait for the phone to ring
       No dial tone!
Did I not pay my phone?
I forgot I myself don't like using the

 A very unusual way to leave the world.
       Let's all thank,
For one of the worlds best inventions
The most valuable means of communication.
      UN-great-full we are,
Abandoning the telephone in every nation
We now consider the cell phone a better creation.
What happens to talking to our friends from home.
Now you are talking while pumping gas at the gas station.
Driving around while talking on the phone.
You don't care about your situation.
Just as long your antenna is not on roaming.
What happen to s.o.s. Communication.
Now we TEX with addiction.
Do not forget about phoning internet.
Do not forget about the year1876.

    a great one why do we seem to have to stay in touch so much,,,yes I agree they are great for an emergency,,the best one that ever happened to me,,was,,,when someone was talking on a cellphone in the middle of a hallway and i was walking down the hallway,,and they said to me excuse me this is a private call,,,I said not anymore since you decided to take ii in public,,and I said excuse ME,,and Thank you for visiting my words and leaving your comment as well...Blessings..Cecil

    I'm sitting in Barnes and Noble trying to enjoy my coffee and cookie when this idiot at the table next to me starts using his cell phone. I'm sure everyone within 50 feet of his table could hear every word. Did you ever want to poke a cell phone down the user's throat? Good write! Love, daver

    Great your comments on the phone, Irma! By the way did you know that the telephone was originally a German invention by a certaim Mr. Philipp Reis, A teacher from Gelnhausen, Hesse, Germany? But his problem was that nobody there paid attention to his invention and only Graham Bell was later capable to bring it togeneral use. Thank you for commenting "Nights"..Rgds. Gert
