Sponsored Post: Day Without Cell Phones

Written by Kitty Bradshaw and posted in Tags: , , , Sponsored Post

 

The kind folks over at U.S. Cellular have asked me to imagine getting through the day without my cell phone and writing about it.  Below I talk about a nightmare of the day without my phone:

I come from the generation that remembers when cell phones and computers didn’t exist. It took me a long time to embrace the whole concept of carrying around a cell phone. At one point I looked upon cell phones the same way I looked upon ankle monitoring bracelets… something made easy for others to keep tabs on you. When cell phones started out, they did two things which was making and receiving calls. They didn’t come with all the extra’s that now as made people dependant. Cell phones are now seen as a life’s necessity along side Food, Water, and Justin Beiber.

Fast forward to now, my business relies on my accessibility. I can’t imagine a day going by without me having access to my phone. Every email, every text, every call, and every tweet is an opportunity for me to make money. My cell phone even sleeps next to me at night. Now that I think about it, I may need therapy for this, loll.

If a day went by without me having access to my phone, several things would happen. First, I would spend an hour kicking myself for being absent-minded and leaving it at home. Second, my hands would become restless. I think my hands naturally gravitate towards my phone every 5 minutes. The last thing that I know for sure would happen is me stopping whatever it is I am doing to go back home and retrieve my phone.

    Cell phones have become our primary phones here at my house. We stopped using a “land line” years ago.
