Are you old enough to remember having one phone per household and sharing that phone with neighbors who didn’t have a phone? Do you remember pay telephone booths? What about when you called a person the phone was busy and/or they weren’t at home, no answering machine, call waiting, caller id, call forwarding, no bundles or hidden fees. Long distance was an additional cost and telephone operators were there to assist and monitor phone calls?
Over time, the idea of multiple phones lines came about to help handle higher call volume, there was always another human being on the other side and just one language, English.
Today, just about every person has a phone and is always on it, like they are addicted. When you call them you get a very sophisticated automated answering system, in multiple languages and personal phones are tightly screened due to the overwhelming aggravation of unsolicited sale calls, collection agencies and this calls are machine generated.
Smart phones were created and have so many functions, one of which global satellite positioning (GPS).
With all this aggravation going on with phones, why are people so addicted to their phones?
