Writing Prompt: Call me, Maybe

I use my phone mainly to make calls, to various companies I deal with. I always have trouble with Roger’s,they provide the internet,the T.V. sometimes the power company. I had to call the power company a few days ago. My bill was more than three times compared to other months. They were not short of excuses, like it was too cold and it was five days more than the last month. I could argue in five days I more than tripled my bill. I know it would be a futile attempt on my part. So I let it go.

Then there is a call every week from people collecting  used clothes. I am told they sell them,they do not give them free. Besides if I donate every week like they want me to. I won’t have much left for me to wear. So my answer is , “Sorry not this time.”

Then there are personal calls,some I love getting but there are others which I don’t answer. Paying for call display,is worth the money I pay every month.

It is a nuisance when the phone buzzes at 3 A.M. I am very unhappy.

My phone is necessary in times of emergency,such as when I need the plumber to fix problems I have with the plumbing.

I don’t have too many problems with my phone.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this. Phones are useful tools of modern life. And yet, I often think of how our ancestors lived quality lives without them.

    All good wishes,

    robert
