    They did nothing to irritate me.
    Cell phones, on the other hand, I have hated for about 15 years now when I begrudgingly got my first one because it was cheaper than splitting a landline bill with my roommates then.
    They can be my clay pigeons, with those googles and alexas and siris working to interpret exactly what "pull" means.

    Nono, don't shoot the carrier pigeon, use the pigeon to take your messages so you don't have to use the phone!

    I was the same way. I refused a cell phone until I couldn't afford a landline. Now I refuse a smartphone. And when they stop making flips... I'm going carrier pigeon myself.

    How I got my first smart phone was I needed a new phone. The flip phone style I wanted was $99, especially as it's a Samsung and my first phone was a Samsung flip phone, and it took all kinds of abuse, punishment, and torture and still works (or, at least probably would if I could still get a charger and wasn't of an earlier generation that is falling out of service). And there was an HTC smartphone on sale for $1. I was never able to make much money in Indiana, so the cheap phone it was.

    Those flips do take some abuse. The screen on mine is crooked, yet it still functions as it should...

    Took the kids for a walk. Lured them back in the house with cake(its very very difficult to get Ares back in the house).

    Why, you think it will make the food taste funny?

    I don't know what it would taste like.
    But I suspect that the painful blisters would be distracting.

    Been on the phone for two and a half hours almost. This call has been 1 hour and 29 minutes,with the first two minutes being automated stuff (much of it repeated multiple times) to make three selections, a brief hold, a few minutes talking, and on hold ever since.

    I've been catching guppy babies!

    Seems the fish have left a new batch. Been gathering them up and putting them in a 'side basket'. (Ares calls it the 'guppy pack and play'.)

    I found out, after 3 hours of being on the phone, I'll be another 2-3 weeks without a payment.
    And I still have more phone calls to make.:mad:

    Today I tried out a couple of screenwriting apps.

    Fortunately, I haven't found one I like yet.
    (Once I do I won't have any excuse for not getting any work done)

    Certainly sounds more interesting than mine.

    I hate weekends.
