I couldn't have said it better myself...that's why I refuse to get a cell phone no matter how "cheap" they offer them for. I had one and it cost me a fortune as my only phone and I'm not about to pay for 2 either. I got people mad at me when I was really sick and didn't want to talk to anyone so I turned off phone for a week, if someone freaked out at me for doing that for a day I'd tell them where they can stuff their stupid phones and texts. I don't know if it's only about being alone with their thoughts as much as being desperate attention whores who need the world to know when and how they brushed their teeth. Other people reading it=Fame for them I think.To this day, I hate my cell phone. I keep it on vibrate and everyone knows not to call me unless it's an emergency. I refuse to text because people come up with useless crap to tell you about that they could have waited till they saw you to tell you or that you didn't need to know anyway. And then they get mad if you don't answer them. There are just too many people now that freak out if they are alone with their thoughts.
And don't get me started on how stupid Twitter is.
