I was eating dinner with a lady friend of mine (a rarity if you know what I mean), when my mobile phone started singing. I pulled it out, hit silent, and stuffed the phone back into my pocket. The girl was impressed. “I can’t believe you didn’t answer that! Thank you so much”. I figured that I can talk on the phone almost anywhere and any time. Why then, would I talk on the phone while in the presence of an attractive girl that knew my name? –easy answer!
The ability to talk on phones anywhere and at anytime is very new to our society. The person who usually sits in wait for you to finish your jabber most often does so in your presence. The tables have now turned. The people in my presence are not the ones I talk to anymore. The people on my buddy list, address book, and mobile phone contact list are the ones I communicate on a daily basis. Not answering the phone is an easy, not so easy, thing to do.
