Have you ever answered or made a call on a cellphone while you were in a toilet? (Or even wanted to and thought better of it)
If you want to join in here's what David would like you to do:
Please answer today's question on your own blog, any time until next weekend. Just link to this blog (or to this post) so I can follow the progress of the discussion.And the question is:
I have never made a call from a toilet, but you can guarantee if I go to the bathroom my phone will ring or I’ll get a text message! MWM got fed up of running upstairs with my mobile, so I always take it with me now – I know it’s terrible! It’s not just my mobile though, our landline phone is a cordless one so I can’t even escape calls on that, MWM brings that to me too!
I know I should really just ignore it but I can’t, it might be important. When you have children, grandchildren and elderly parents a phone call could mean you have to get there fast, so I feel I have to answer the call wherever I am.
I have a friend who regularly goes for a piddle whilst she’s talking to me on the phone – luckily I can’t hear what she’s doing because she doesn’t stop talking!
Until I was 14 we didn’t have a phone – I don’t know how we managed but we did- I think we used pigeons! It’s like any technology I think, you just get into the habit of using it once you’ve got it, and then you can’t do without it!
Are mobile phones a curse or a blessing? The jury’s out on this one I think, I know I’d miss mine if I didn’t have it. They can be very intrusive and I do switch mine off if I am in a restaurant, theatre or the like, but they can be a lifesaver too – Imagine getting locked in a public lavatory with no-one about, you’d be glad to make a call then wouldn’t you?
Dad's going great guns. He's on crutches now with permission to go where and when he wants! He informed us yesterday that he's been thinking how soon he can dig his garden over!
