Remember When… Phone Booths Were the Norm?

Organized?  What is that?! I am so not organized – I have some writing on this computer, some more on my other computer. I forgot my cell phone at home today (awwwa).  Now how can I do any business without my cell phone; it feels like I am unable to communicate, to keep in touch with everyone.   I am stressed out.

How ridiculous is that?

I remember a time when we had no cell phones – how did we survive? There were pay phones – and they were few and far between, but all in all, we did survive our parents didn’t flip out if they could not make contact with us every minute of every second of every-day…

I think that gave us a lot more freedom, in fact, thinking back we had to make decisions  by ourselves things  like should we go to our friends house after school, or having the cool kid with the car take us to A & W…  I usually did make those decisions on the fly, but of course I would call from rotarty-phonemy friends home phone or a pay phone if I thought I would be to late. To make a call from a pay phone back then cost a dime – it later went to a quarter – the outrage of it all!

We didn’t have the convenience of calling everyone, hard to believe. In school, we passed notes – I guess that makes me as old as dirt? Anyone who would have told me, in the future we would have mobile phones, that would actually send text message, pictures and video. No way… Of course that would have been my teenage reply.

Another thing – do you ever find that when you put something in a safe place, you can never find it again? Am I the only one who has this problem – I hope somebody out, there can relate to this LOL.
