Cell Phones: A Godsend or the Devil's Handiwork?

What's your take on the cell phone craze? Just like my car alarm, I used to think I could do without a cell phone, but the first time my car broke down, I was thankful to have had one. Now I carry one with me wherever I go; however, it's only used for emergencies. I don't sit there and talk on the phone while driving or waiting in line at the post office, like way too many people do. I never had one when I was in high school or younger, like a lot of kids do these days. What do young kids need cell phones for anyway? And why do people have to talk on the phone while driving? If it's that important, they should pull over before attempting to talk. I've seen and heard about too many accidents involved with people talking on cell phones while driving. It's ridiculous.

Let me tell you a story. When you go to any business, such as the post office or the cable company, they have signs posted informing people not to use their cell phones at the desk. Well, I went to talk to someone one time about our cable bill. There was quite a long line on that day. About three people in front of me was a lady talking really loud on her phone. She got up to the desk and never stopped talking on her cell phone. She ignored the lady behind the counter and kept on talking, while the rest of us had to wait to do our business. When the lady behind her, the next one in line, told her to hang up and do her business, the cell phone user told her to shut up and mind her own business. The lady in line informed her that other people were waiting and that there were signs up on not using a cell phone at the desk. It got so bad that the two women almost got into a fist fight over it. Now how stupid is that?

Are cell phones becoming an extension of people's anatomy? It sure seems like it.

So, I ask you again, what's your take on this subject?
