This question just came up on facebook so I figured I'll ask you on here and let everyone yell at me for making a thread about it.

1.) Do you know what a smart phone is??

2.) Do you have one??

if yes to question #2 move on to question #3

3) Do you know how to use it?

I haven't had a land line in 5 years (?) maybe. I do have a cell. I don't have a smart phone. On my cell, I use about 25 minutes a MONTH. I don't answer my phone, I only listen to messages. For myself, I don't want to be like a Pavlov's dog and every time the phone rings, I just have to answer it. I don't live and work under other people's expectations. I live my own life. I guess that answers your question albeit it an odd question.............

Do you jump and answer your phone when it rings? If so, why?...........




discriminating hippie

Edit: I don't answer my door at home either. People I want to see know they can walk into my house at anytime and it won't bother me and for the rest of the people: leave a message

That was not a term I applied to myself ..........

Erm, yes (well, not jump - my phone is not up on a 7 ft tall table) - because it...

1) Stops it ringing.
2) Might be important.
3) Is probably someone who wants to speak to me.
4) Seems like the kind of thing any sane individual would do.

Also, I had to fire my PA.

I don't know if you are JK or not. For me, I don't owe any bills (outstanding), I am not in trouble with the law, and I don't know my neighbors really well. All of my electronic stuff is downstairs in the basement so when I go down there, the outside world can just be at my whim cuz I don't care.

PA? Personal assistant??

1) my phone is always on mute so it doesn't ring.
2) Nothing is so important that it can't wait till I get around to it.
3) A lot of people want to talk with me. Does that mean I want to talk with them? sometimes yes, sometimes no......
4) Back to Pavlov. Hear the bell and jump like a good little doggie and maybe we will give you a treat.

I bet you are also the type of person that if you are on one call with someone, and you get another call, you ask the current caller to ...hold on...

It stems from my days as a radical I think. Donít tell me what to do is my mantra. Sometimes there are consequences but even you York, it is up to you and no one else what you do and donít do. Donít be the establishments little pet. Be a man and stand up for whatever it is you believe in and fuck the people that give you a hard time about it. Like this question: Why in the world would anyone, especially people that donít know me, give a flying fuck if I answer my phone or not or even have some sort of opinion on it? Yes the cr****** is in my sig and thatís why I donít do it any more in my posts. Ö..

Phones are serious business.

Kidding aside, if you're so concerned about being a "little pet," why do you even have a phone? I don't get why having a phone but not answering is it standing up for what you believe in. Do you believe in pointless, non-fulfilling expenses?

Are you serious? You've been hanging out here long enough to have picked up this useless bit of trivia.

It goes back to something or other in 2007 when certain words were blocked out with ****. Ron started using it at the end of his posts. I belive the cr stands for Colorado Ron, though I am likely mistaken. The end.

I'm guessing the phone is for emergencies. If there is an emergency and he wants to get by on his own and give the finger to the establishment, he needs a phone with which to not dial 911 and play into their hands.

That's partially why I text as much as I can. I don't wanna type on the tiny keypad too much and usually others don't either. Which in my experience, tends to get people to the point much faster.

I am on call 24/7 at work so I have to have a cell. If I see there is a message I will see who it is from and then respond accordingly. It's a love hate thing. I was just cleaning out a back room and I have 5 receivers, 4 sets of speakers, etc. I need to clean house.

Speaking of: You know those cell phones that have the mini projector in them and you can project your jpegs on a wall or whatever, now they are working on one that the projection goes towards you. You in turn make it project on say a table and tata, it is a full size keyboard. As you hit the "key" it breaks the light connection and in turn acts just like a keyboard. That's pretty cool.

I keep it out of reach, usually in another room so it doesn't matter if it displays the incoming call or not. It also doesn't always display. It depends on the tower because we have that issue at my work.

i have an iphone. unlimited texts and data are necessary for me. the least minutes i can get is also what i opt for. i never answer phone calls- you have to leave me a voicemail and i might listen to it in the next few days. i really dislike talking on the phone, it makes me uncomfortable. i text like a fiend. one finger, without even looking at the phone. if you want to talk on the phone with me that badly, text me first to tell me we should talk on the phone, ill text back with whether or not im comfortable with that. otherwise short phone calls for things like "hey where are you? why arent you here yet?" or "hey i just got here" or an emergency perhaps. but i really dislike talking on the phone.

When I get calls from "private" callers it's usually an actual person with a reason to call me.

The robocalls usually say "unknown", "out of area", or are what appears to be a toll-free number.

Ron's phone is smarter than he is.

I haven't had a land line in 5 years (?) maybe. I do have a cell. I don't have a smart phone. On my cell, I use about 25 minutes a MONTH. I don't answer my phone, I only listen to messages. For myself, I don't want to be like a Pavlov's dog and every time the phone rings, I just have to answer it. I don't live and work under other people's expectations. I live my own life. I guess that answers your question albeit it an odd question.............

Hit me up in a day or so, Ron! I should have the can of black olives that are in my refrig finished by then, and we can chat.






....oh and i went on a date with a deaf guy tonight, it was really interested how much we texted each other while sitting at the same table

Not in a bad way,mind you... I could actually picture Ron and a deaf guy casually communicating back and forth. It was the 2nd date that concerned me. LOL

I am going to have a unique ringtone for each contact. That way I will know who is calling even if I can't see the name/phone number/picture.

i did this with my last phone. it wasn't very expensive for me because no one called me. :'[

yeah, I get plenty of Mormons too.. they're always super nice, so they don't irritate me as much I guess

I love the Mormons. I invite them into my house and try to make them feel as uncomfortable as possible. I ask them if God would approve of my sexual life, then I go into detail on my sex life. Its a good way to start my morning.



Ron, I don't care if you don't answer your phone. They're just nitpicking for things to make fun of because they don't like you.
Sorry for being captain obvious.

Amy stfu before we turn on you!!!



Yes I am an idiot. Go fuck yourself, Tom.

YES!!!!!


Well you posted so I must be right, only boring people post in this thread. Good morning Monk (ey)...............

This thread makes me hate you more and more


Are you gonna tell us any yester year stories of radical Ron or not?

He wasn't really a radical...Ron the radical consists of him sleeping with his slaves I guess those days you were a radical if you loved the dark meat.

The radical is a slave to time and enjoys rock band in his basement when he isn't answering his calls.
