All the yuppies here in New York City have them. Typical conversation while sitting in a bus: "Hello. I'm here on the bus. How are my gold fish doing while I'm away? I'll meet you for brunch at high noon. You mean you never heard the term high noon before? Why it's an expression us (or is it we) Westerners use to mean 12pm - YOU DUMMY" Click off the cell phoney. End of typical conversation.

I finally got one, & I take it with me when I go to the woods or the ponds. Being alone on a dead end road makes you think about the possibilities for problems. I haven't given the number to anyone except my husband and don't use it for regular calls but it's nice to know I'd have it if I got in trouble. I held off getting one until they came out with plans that included long distance & no roaming charges, since everywhere is long distance from my place.
Just my opinion; I could live without it but it's a good piece of safety equiptment just like a gun- you hope you won't need to use it but it's nice to have it if/when you ever needed it.
Blessings, Kathy

I don't own one yet but will supply my kids with one each when they start driving in about three years. Darn things have saved lives.

Don't have one, don't need one, don't answer the phone at home unless I feel like it, let it ring!!!
Later Bob

Got one,use it out of have to,can't git reception where you need it,hate when an idiot can't drive and talk,(they ain't good with chew'n gum and walking either)and the worst thing is in a eat'n place and some dimwit has got to parade around like a peacock and let everybody know they are so important that they need to be stayed in touch with all the time and they talk loud enough to wake up the neighbors.While I'm griping,what about the people that drive slow in the left lane,don't know you can turn left on red, don't know how to yield,or pull out in front of you and go 50 yards and stop to turn.

I say give those folks tickets for driving around with those cell phoneys.

Why don't we give cops a ticket for talking on their motorolas,they probaly just ordering donuts.Those of us that can talk(to the point)on one and drive too ort not be compared to the others.It's like the teacher catching little Johnny talking and punishing the whole class.

Let me get this straight, you say it is OK to drive and talk on a cell phone at the same time??? So your the guy that passed me doing 95, only to slow down to 35, using both lanes of a two lane road before running a stop sign!!

Redneck    Posted 04-24-2002 at 17:16:49       [Reply]  [No Email]
Naw hoss,let me set you straight!I said if you can't drive and talk on a phone ,you ain't got no da#n bussiness driving at all!I drive the speed limit,conditions permitting,and if you are the morun that is doing 35 in the fast lane you need run over.I don't run stop signs,only have to sit through a whole light because you are the idiot that ain't got sence enough to stop and turn right on red.And while I'm at it, I have probably backed up more miles than you have drove,so get off this hoss and git off NOW!

I spend most of my time on the cell phone saying "Can you hear me? Are you still there? Hello?hello?hello?.
We use it sparingly and not in front of wimmen and chillin.

Dennis - You've got the right idea.

When we were on the train between DC and NY, a woman got on in Philly and sat in the seat right behind us. She proceeded to call everybody she could think of and tell them she was on the train and it was going to be a few minutes late getting in to Penn Station. I bet she spent 90% of her time on the train talking on that cell phone.

I hope she got a zinger of a cell phoney bill - YAP YAP YAP!

A cowboy in NEW YORK CITY??? And riding a BUS, too!! Around here the cowboys drive 4X4 one ton flatbeds with a cake box on it. If they're working a distance from the headquarters they pull a two horse trailer with a couple of good ranch horses in it. They use cell phones, too, but for someting important like ordering up a chicken fried steak for dinner. That's a pretty good one--a cowboy in NY, riding a bus! Must be a drug store type "cowboy."

You've got me wrong. I ain't no cowboy - just the radio kind. I don't own a cell phoney - and never will.

I bet with half the folks who own them, they're some kind of status symbol. Why I hear you can buy fake ones, with flashing lights and fake rings. Talk about low class status seekers.
