What would we do without cellular phones

We,  Mr Doodles and I are RV'rs.  We are traveling all the time.  To be able to keep in touch with family and friends by way of my Verizon phone well there is nothing  better. 

When we are in one of the big box stores and Mr wanders off I can call him almost like a GPS and get his location.   I am able to call my sister from the market and ask her to read me that recipe  cause I forgot to put the app on my phone.  See we added another word to our vocabulary   APP

But folks let me remind you that I am sick and tired of almost being  run over by some jerk while they were on their phone.  If in fact you think your conversation is more important that very minute than you paying attention while driving well you just might want to check with your insurance company to see if you are covered for an accident while you were chatting or texting.

Let me list a few incidences that happened just in the last few days. 

  • lady ran a red lite at a very busy intersection, I in a truck and another car were very lucky to have missed her.
  • a fellow was on the phone  when a fire truck with full sirens blasting swerved to get out of his way.
  • an older gentleman in a work truck was texting while turning left I happened to be turning left also and he ventured over in my lane.  He had the nerve to mouth  "sorry".
  • and last but not least a woman ran her cart into the back of me because she was checking her coupons. Knowing she ran into me she said  "trying to save some money here".
Those are but a few I even was aware of.  Sit in your car and count the number of folks around you in their car  on the phone.  You can bet the conversation doesn't end when the lite changes.

All I can say is ya better have a lot and I mean a gob lot of insurance if you hit me cause I'm coming after you if you were on your phone. 

Cell phones play an important part in all our lives just don't let your usage before a nightmare.
