Cell Phones, Good, Bad? Quote of the day!

Cell phones.

A great invention?

 A great tool!

A way of keeping in touch with others?!

The quote of the day is one I believe very strongly in.

Our household has gone to the rule of NO Cells phones at the dinner table.

One exception is My business phone.  I will answer it ONLY if it is a call that I am waiting on that I know needs attention right away.

Cell Phones...Good? Bad? Ugly?


You tell me!

This is so true. Last night my husband and I, daughter and boyfriend sat around to watch a DVD...upon looking up I realized that we were on our cell phones.

So very true.  I have noticed my son and granddaughters focus on their phone or computers form the entire Daddy weekend....so I intervened and to.d the, we wou.d not have electronics and phones on for their weekend visits.  Other than work line which I will be answering.

True William Feela . It's good for our business. Bad and ugly for kids.

Hello William ...

I totally agree and cell phones have certain places to used and I have also banned the cell phones from the dinner table!

Good rule, I hate to see them being used everywhere, I think it's rude.

Good morning William.  I agree with very few exceptions.  Of course, mine is the exception.

Good morning William. When cells first arrived they were a novelty and then...I liked it better before.

To me it seams that the cell phone has made it easier to be more lazy

Hi William.  They have become an intrusive device in our daily lives.

The cell phone is good . . .  . it's bad . . . . and something that we're attached at the hip with.

Good luck and success.

I resisted getting one of these for years, but my clients insisted on keeping me on one of these leashes, now I too am hooked.

Cell phones are a tool.  They aren't good or bad.  It's how we use them that can make it bad.

No cell phones at the dinner table. That's the rule at my house. I believe they are a necessary tool (evil) these days, and they do make staying in touch a lot easier.
