Ever consider other people are doing the same as you? Lots of people use their phones as a crutch in social situations to avoid feeling awkward or whatever.Not at all. I rarely get texts or calls from anybody. My iPhone's pretty much just a $600 portable entertainment center for me. Whenever I'm bored, I just pull it out and browse the internet. I sometimes PRETEND to text in public to make it look like I'm normal. I see people all the time, and every one of them always texting someone. When I say everyone, I mean EVERYONE. It seems like I'm the only one that isn't texting someone. I go MONTHS before someone texts me for whatever reason.
Same here. I find that whenever one of my friends texts me saying one of those phrases, they usually want me to do something for them. Every time I respond it's always, "Hey, I need 20 bucks." or "Hey, I'm at a party and I'm too drunk to drive. Can you drive me home?" or "I want you to come to my business meeting." There's always ulterior motives.I prefer quality conversations and refuse to answer texts from friends that merely say "hey, what's up?" or "hi". If they wish to ask a question specifically or speak of something mildly interesting, sure, but otherwise I just ignore them.
your location haunts meI had a basic cell phone a few years back that I brought for like £10. The only contacts I had on there were my mother and father. The phone has long since been forgotton about and is likely collecting dust bunnies in an uninhabited area of my bedroom,
I have a basic phone tooNo, I have a basic phone, not a smart phone; and it's really just a tool.
It's the only phone I have so I do use it to call my parents and make a few other social-type calls every once in a long while.
