commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Beepers, Cellphones and texting…….

I’m getting a little old these days…I don’t use my phone to do texting…….I don’t know how…and don’t want to know how, to tell you the truth.

First it was carrying a beeper……that was cool…everybody knew you where important enough to have one for work……Then people carried TWO beepers!…….One for work, and one for home…….Then came Cellphones…….Same thing……for work……and almost all the early users were males…like the beeper carriers.   Then someone woke up and realized that EVERYBODY could have a phone and it was on!

Now everyone has a phone, even grandma’s and little kids……..So what came next?……Texting!…….What I don’t understand is how my son and everyone else can text ……AND DRIVE?…..I mean, how can they watch the road, and text?…….Can someone please explain?

    I thought cellphones came first

    I can remember the old briefcase ones you would carry in your trunk

    I never noticed a significant increased use in male usage over female usage when it came to cell phones circa 1990s
