Cell phones have made our lives worse, not better. 2Remember

Resolved Question:

Cell phones have made our lives worse, not better. 2Remember when you
could eat in a restaurant without hearing the obnoxious ring of someone's cell
phone? 3From restaurants to movie theaters, cell phones violate peace
and quiet. 4And not only do they disturb others, but they also
distract the people using them. 5Have you ever driven behind someone
talking on a cell phone? 6You can tell that the driver is on the
phone because of the changing speed and swerving. 7The crazy thing is
that people think cell phones have made their lives easier. 8The
truth is, they have not. 9My sister, for example, uses her cell phone
to call her office for messages. 10She works twenty-four hours a day
now, thanks to her cell phone. 11Then there are all the mental
burdens of figuring out how to carry the phone (belt clip or phone bag?),
remembering to take it along, keeping it charged, and finding a place with good
reception. 12How do I know these things? 13I was once a
cell phone user, but I saw the light and broke free from cell phone bondage.
14You know, it's not called a cell phone without good reason.
