Cell Phone - Intro
I love my phone. My friends are on speed dial which means I can get in touch with anyone at anytime. Even when phones are technically against the rules, I can still text a few messages to stay on top of things. To dress up my phone, I've found a few different covers I like, and I alternate them depending on mood. The red cover is for spicy days, the yellow is for cheerful days and the black is for the more basic day.

The phone goes everywhere with me, including school, work and the car. I really would feel lost without it, and I notice that others must feel the same way. As much as I love my phone, however, I have noticed recently that some people might be taking cell phone ownership to an entirely new level.

Cell Phone - Advanced Phone

Cell Phone Wars

Now, I'm not going to lie. I have a pretty decent phone. I change ring tones occasionally and can access the internet if I wanted to, although I don't. (I'd rather spend my minutes elsewhere.) My phone isn't top of the line, but it gets the job done. For other people, including some of my friends, cell phones are more like jewelry. The must have the latest and the greatest, and then they find a way to show it off.

I don't know how many times I've watched someone make a very grand gesture of checking messages and just "happen to mention" that their new phone cost $350 and how their parents will just DIE if they lose it. Frankly, if I were a parent on the verge of death, I don't think I'd trust a $350 phone to the particular girl I'm thinking of, but I digress.

Unfortunately this trend is much like any other. My car is better than yours. You're still wearing THOSE? I can't believe your parents won't buy you one of THESE phones; they are so much better! Girls will be catty at times, and cell phone wars aren't any different.

Cell Phone - Rude Hillary Duff

Cell Phone Rudeness

Show-offs aside, I have noticed a few other things that drive me nuts about people and phones. I should point out that I try very hard not to do these things since I complain about others doing them.

    The Screamer – Why does she think we all need to hear the entire conversation? This girl doesn't just talk on the phone, she practically screams on it. These people also seem to be in places where you just don't want to be forced to listen to their conversation anyway – like in a very long line.

    Stall Talkers – Okay, I've gotten one or two of these calls before. Yes, perhaps you have a chance to sit down for a few minutes in a bathroom stall, but can't you just read graffiti like a normal person instead of calling your nearest and dearest friends while…um…in the act? A toilet flushing in the middle of your tribute to your newest crush just seems to take away the meaning somehow.

    Cell Phone - Screaming
    The Stopper – You're walking through the mall or at school and it happens. The person in front of you is having some sort of deep conversation on the phone, or the phone rings, and they stop. Instantly. And half the time you practically run into them or bump into someone else avoiding running into them. The best part? The stopper just keeps standing there in the middle of traffic, oblivious to all the people that now have to go around her.

    The Princess – When you're on the phone, the world does not wait for you. So why do some people think it should? How often have you heard, "Hold on, I have to take this," in the middle of a moving sob story or maybe while you're just hanging out together. Then, because you apparently have nothing better to do than sit around and wait on her highness to finish giggling on the phone with someone else, your "friend" talks forever and says, "No wait! I'll be off in a second," every time you try to leave.

Cell Phone - Summary
I would hope that nobody out there is guilty of these cell phone crimes, and if you are, perhaps now you realize just how rude they are. We've all done silly or rude things from time to time, but that should just motivate us to avoid making the same mistake in the future. Cell phones are great, don't get me wrong, but they should never come before a real person or a real friendship. They are supposed to help build friendships, not put them on hold.

yeah, i have a cell phone. i love my phone, and i take it everywhere. but its not a $350 phone. its not even a good phone. i HATE those ppl who show off their phones, and who get a new phone every month. They show everyone. NOBODY CARES!!

i also think its ridiculous that kids are getting cell phones at such young ages. i did get mine when i was in 5th grade, but i know 4th graders with chocolates and razors.

yes, i would like to have an expensive phone, but not to show it off. i want it because the phone i have now cant do anything.
