OK, I'm being facetious. Maybe.
I suffered a serious illness. I was in the hospital for along time and then unable to work for several months. One of the things I did to save money while I was unable to work was get rid of my cellphone. During my recovery I rarely left the house, and when I did my wife was with me and she has a phone.
That was 4 years ago. Today I'm fully recovered and back to normal. And I still don't have a cellphone. Not only am I saving hundreds of dollars a year, but even better is the freedom. Want to get in touch with me? Send me an email. Or call my home and leave a message on my answering machine. I'll get back to you when I feel like it.
Best thing I ever did.
