I might charge my cell phone 1-2 times a year. It is not for constant use.
I only have one due to my dear old sick mother, from 1999 to 2009 or so i dident have a phone other then the fixed line in my house and to be honest it was only there to get internet.
When my mother are gone, so are my phone i think, its not like them becoming smart since i last had one have made me addicted to them.
On average i think i get and make 2-3 calls every week, the numbers for texts are the same i think,,,, pretty nice the people respect me telling how much i dislike talking on the phone.
When a call cross the 3 - 5 minute length i start to pull out hair not least since the important part of the call only took 20 seconds and now the other part just offload BS i can wait to hear when i actually see the person.
Most of my calls are like this.
Me. whats up its Peiter ( my IRL nickname since i was 10 or so ), are you home ?
Other person: yes
Me: cool see you soon then.
I think I will dig out my old Nokia 7110. I was always quite fond of it, I think it would be a great backup phone with a new battery.
I was looking up jokes about Nokia 3310 battery life earlier and saw they've brought out a 2017 version of it. I was tempted to get one, but it seems to be an overpriced nostalgia toy. My old 7110 is more authentic, I'll stick with that.
I even have a couple of analogue mobiles somewhere. You know... Just in case they decide to switch back.

Some people are so old-fashion that they still use art of conversation. Saves your phone batteries too.
If one person was eliminated, all the rest put together would ring my phone 2-3 times a week. But I have to work so.... Lacking that one person I can run my phone about 10 days on one charge, but with them I have to charge it every 2-3 days.
I wouldn't mind that so much but that one feckwit, who holds multiple college degrees but still cannot compile his thoughts into one phone call instead of five, rings me multiple times every day to essentially say nothing which I am not already aware of. Even after seeing my phone and being told multiple times that it's tiny screen doesn't do pics well, the same idiot still sends them Just another dumba$$ who could not figure out how to accomplish anything without his phone, which literally rings every minute or less The same as there being huge numbers of people who cannot manage themselves well enough to drive safely, there are at least as many who cannot manage themselves well enough to have a cellphone without being a menace with it too
Oh, my phone? A tiny LG CF360 It will fit entirely into a cigarette pack: 10cmX5cmX2cm. It has been sat on, laid on, been covered with sweat, and dropped from roofs so many times that I can't count them, but any one instance of which would have killed the average smartphone. I broke the screen of my first one by throwing it across the yard and the one I use now wore through the rubber down to the switch inside about 4 months ago. I have a 3rd one ready for use when this one quits- it was a hassle finding one as they haven't made these in ages. Just swap the SIM card and go. That one cost me all of $12 used in VF+ condition It has a web browser, camera, and GPS functions but I never use them. It replaced an equally small Nokia flip-phone which wasn't nearly as durable. It does everything a basic phone needs to do most excellently. It does not pretend to be a tablet or laptop PC or any such other silliness which 90% of the smartphone owners could do without. It's the "Mobius" of cellphones
I have a LR flip phone for emergencies, I have made 2 calls on it in the last year, I don't like phones! I just can't understand people who will stay on their cell phone literally for a hour are more! If I need to talk to anyone longer then 3 minutes, I go see them.
Another BIG peeve is people who call and don't leave a message on my land line phone. Then email me and want to know why I don't return their calls
I absolutely love Blond jokes:
Henlo hooman I am comfort cloud do not be worried
Really glad I didn't have mine done there.
my 8 year old daughter has dark blonde hair, and sometimes she acts like that. it's like really? she's reading at a level higher than anyone else in her class, picking up multiplication and division as if she already knows it, but then sometimes she says or does something that just makes you stop dead in your tracks...
seems fishy to me. i would think that shanghai's airport was big enough and modern enough that they'd have jetways to let people board, so they don't have to walk on the tarmac/pad/whatever. protection from noise, smells, weather, etc.
sorry, i had to.
You have use all you spoiler you got, here in this forum in one post.
That reminds me of a long time ago, I was outside a large disco/bar, and a lady was fishing through her purse, looking for 'something'.
She finally walks up to me and says 'give me a quarter, I need to make a phone call'. (remember pay phones?)
I replied 'why should I give you a quarter'?
He answer was 'because I'm pretty!'
I grabbed a penny out of my pocket, handed it to her, and said 'you're not that pretty!' (she wasn't)
She was furious. Threw the penny across the parking lot, then went over to the doorman/bouncer, talked to him a a minute, still agitated, and pointed at me.
He ended up giving her a quarter.
Here's a Thai pile driver, that works better after a big lunch.
In west 6 unemployed guys watch one guy use huge machine doing same job.
One fat American can easily do 5 Thai men's job in this case.
^^^ He'd never get up on that plank....
