Lifeline And Boredom Box

Describe your relationship with your phone. Is it your lifeline, a buzzing nuisance, or something in between?

I have an odd relationship with cell phones. I have been using them less and less for phone calls and more for social media and messaging for the past few years. Texting using Whatsapp which is a free service is the best and you reach out to a whole lot more people using groups. That’s how I mostly communicate and keep in touch.

I rarely make phone calls unless it’s for work or something related to customer care for my services – my internet, my phone or my USB internet service. Otherwise it is for contacting a friend or a cousin for a lunch or dinner event. That is like once or twice a month. Phone calls to home is a few and usually short as well. I am not a big fan of talking on the phone.

Otherwise I use my smartphone for Facebook, Twitter, other apps that I use. Sometimes I even pay bills or transact using HDFC’s app. I book tickets for movies (a recent thing) and other stuff. I answer emails and things of that sort if I am not near my laptop at the time. Calls? Very few! But it is a necessity ofcourse.
