Default "Thumbmonkeys"-cell addicts

I need friends without cell phones.

All my friends do is sit around staring at phones and talking about aps.

Have plans with a cell phone owner and they are always late. Turns out it's my fault I had to wait on them because I did not have a cell phone for them to call and tell me they were running late. They never have an answer for, "Why can't you just be on time?"

Oh and don't expect any kind of problem solving from these folks either. If there is no ap for it they are SOL.

I tossed mine out 2 yrs ago.
I'd be in the middle of a job like holding a tree up in the air , guys waiting for me and get a useless call
I seem to be getting along fine without one , go figure

My son has a couple of friends that fish with us occasionally. Last time out I had to tell them to turn the phones off or I am throwing them overboard ( start with phones then work up to the friends)

They are addicted to the damn things, checking them every 15 seconds to see if they missed a text or whatever. I guess I don't get it.

I got my first digital Nokia right before a trip to Florida with an outdoor photographer friend of mine, and almost ALL the arrangements were FUBAR. He was on MY phone continuously(didn't take his ) even while we were fishing the first couple of days. IF I hadn't brought along the cig lighter charger things would have quieted down after a bit.

So the bigger the jugs the more charge you get - makes sense to me....

I have fallen into this trap myself. I don't have enough friends to warrant being connected 24/7. Some of the navigation/fishing apps are cool, but shit, that's why I have over 10k in freakin electronics on my boat. As soon as my contract is up I'm ditching this smartphone and going back to the stone age of cell phones.
