I almost had to walk the 6 miles back but I was able to use the hose adapter, or what was left of it, to make another one by shaving off the stop risers on the side that cracked and broke which allowed the hose to slide on far enough for a clamp. And of course the gas station was nearby. If not for these two lucks then I would've walked and probably enjoyed it since it beats working.

you guys without phones must all be married, or very good at sending smoke signals, otherwise getting laid in this day and age pretty much begins with the capability to send a text message

The YJ is no longer my DD. I have sacrificed all future retirement plans for jeep parts. I'm depending on social security!

Unless you can find someone just as big of a luddite, yeah, you're pretty much screwed.

I am married, but since sing in a lot of Honky Tonk bars with my band, I have never really had a problem with this.

Making a thread on the internet (modern technology which we don't necessarily NEED) about not having or wanting a cell/smart phone ( more modern technology) is kinda like throwing rocks from inside a glass house.

You have a phone at home and you have the internet. It is anchored at home. With a cell/smart phone you have a phone and the internet that is not anchored, you can increase your freedom. It's no different than any other tech of the past ( the auto, gun powder, electric coffee machine, matches verses carrying hot coals, etc, etc.).......it's about making life more convenient, embracing change and looking forward. Without looking forward there is stagnation.....stagnation = death and looking forward = progress and life.

As mentioned previously with a cell you can be reached (you can also choose to ignore it), it can make things easier, save you gasoline ( mobile check deposit), etc.



Hope that helps.

I agree with all of this except "you can be reached and choose to ignore it." I know my wife's phone is charged and turned on. And when she's out till 3am and doesn't answer I'm all like "*****, where you be at?!?" Then I get all jealous and start breaking things like antique china her mom gave her.

Sometimes, cellular telephones can cause more grief than good.

I have one because the job I'm in essentially requires one (I'm a real estate agent) but my kids will not get one until they are in high school and even then I refuse to buy them smart phones. All they need to be able to do is call/text us in case of emergencies.

There's no replacement for displacement

I play LOTS of phone games while the concentrated evil exits me.

I was driving to work last night and saw a young dude driving a SUV on the left lane while texting. He had his phone on the steering wheel and was drifting to the left. I beeped and he freaked out then put down the damn phone. I probably saved his life plus others.

Idiots!!!!!
