As a kid, I dreamed about having my own phone line in my room, but now? I don’t even have a phone line in my home! I have thousands of roll-over minutes on my AT&T plan. I rarely ever make phone calls. The minutes are never used up.
I thought I was crazy but according to a New York Times article, I’m not. The act of picking up the phone to call someone is becoming quickly extinct. The only people that really call me anymore are family and even then, it’s a quick call. We default to text. I call when I am lost…, but text/tweet/Facebook is the preferred way people talk to each other when they’re not in person. My dilemma? I hate texting. I find it rather annoying…so this is kind of depressing…this narrows down my media options.
At work, using the phone is the method of last resort to reach someone. It’s always IM, email or even walking by his/her desk first. I guess that people just think no one answers the phone anymore (and they don’t exactly love leaving voice mail). But let’s be honest, talking to people on bluetooth and being placed on hold is insanely annoying and I don’t want to be that girl so if an email will get me my answer, I’d rather do that.
BTW, visit this take out ordering service called Grubhub where you can order and pay for your food online without talking on the phone, you only have to meet the deliveryman to get it.
Yes, it’s amazing.
Just like the sky was tonight. Pure indulgence. God sure knows how to paint!
