CIC Mobile Phone Report Teaser

  • I was a big holdout before I finally broke down and got myself a cellular phone. I didn't honestly think it was that more convenient than using a land line and I certainly didn't want people to get a hold of me whenever they wanted to. I liked the little bit of anonymity I had and usually despised it when friends would get up from a nice dinner to answer their cell phones. It didn't benefit the matter that most of my friends were spending between twenty and forty pounds every month to cover their cell phone bills; the only way I could afford to pay that much for a phone was if I decided to stop eating for a month or two.
