What is this thing you call text ?

No smart phone, no texting, no voicemail, no FB, no tats or piercings and no email for a couple of years.  Do have to get a working email soon though.  The wife is tired of me using her's for purchase info.  My cell is never on.  I just use it to make calls when I'm on the road and very rarely at that.  Never had a portable mp3 player for that matter either.  Road music is on a flash drive shoved into the car CD player.

Low tech, low maintenance, low money and low interest in new stuff (mostly because of low money).

Oh lord, don't even get me started about people who refuse to dial and talk anymore. If someone is telling me something that goes on and on and takes up 2-3 texts—why the hell don't they just call? Are they afraid I'm going to gab for an hour and not let them go? What?

 

One friend said (in a terse tone) "Well, I can't wait until you have a smart phone so I can send you pictures that you can actually see." (I tell them they can send 'em to my computer!) Or when they send texts with some unknown jumble of code (I guess it's a sticker-emoticon that a dumb phone won't read) instead of any response in words, and I tell them I can't read it, they kind of chastise THAT too.


Jeebus. 

 

When I'm good and ready to commit to a smart phone, I'll look for some nice family or group of friends to go in with, so I can afford the data plan.



 

Yep, I have one friend who complains constantly about not being able to get in touch with me.  Little does he know that is the whole point. {#Mrgreen}

What happens when you give out your Facebook password to the whole internet?
 
Well, for starters, you become a Taco Bell representative:
 
 

 
For years, I've wondered what would happen if I created a "Public" RP user. Someone would probably change the PW and that'd be that. I'm guessing Max was a "page" and not a person? so the guy could log back in and change the PW back to what it was advertised as...

Facebook cares. Facebook is your friend. Facebook provides all. Facebook is God.

And kids, if you see Mommy and Daddy smoking pot , be sure to tell FB.
