How Important Is My Cell Phone?

I am not the biggest phone user. But if any part of it is a nuisance, then one thing would not be my ringtone. I downloaded Kid Rock’s ‘Bawitdaba’ at a fair cost of 30 minutes. Yes it is prepaid, and to be honest tends to cost as much as a real smart-phone.

The connection is great and the customer service is pretty acceptably. A memorable call back in 2000 when I first started using a prepaid cell phone was calling a my cousin Bubba at work in a supermarket in Texas from Fort Benning, Georgia. I was attending my brother’s boot camp/infantry graduation.

But, good customer service does not mean anything in present day America. I feel safe in saying if you do not practice courtesy and friendly relationships with your customers then your company does not exist or will soon be liquidated. This is a prerequisite if you want to compete in a Capitalistic market.

I do not use my cell phone much beyond very close relatives and job contacts. With all undue respect, I have learned the block tool is very handy in ignoring pushy phishing operations looking for your social security number and more. I do not mind hearing a sales pitch, but make it quick and don’t approach the call in any way that sounds like a scam. If we just got introduced, don’t act like we grew up together. Just saying!

Friendly is good! Peachy and over-the top is not.

Oddly enough, after saying all of this about not being attached at the hip to my cell-phone, I would probably suffer from withdraw symptoms if I was without it. You ‘don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone’ might have been the smartest thing that came out of classic rock.
