I Can’t Live Without My Phone

I Can’t Live Without My Phone

hello internet so some of you guys may
know the other week I had a few stressful days and I realized in
hindsight that actually they were all caused by the same thing not having my phone one day I made plans
to go out and buy a new shirt and then later meet up with a friend for a movie
so in typically 43 minutes late fashion I ran out of my house jumped onto the
underground whacked out my phone to do some flappy birding and realized that i
only had seventeen percent battery I forgot to charge my phone overnight
you know that sinking feeling that you get when you realize something really
terrible like did I just text a nude to the wrong friend or I forgot to give grandad his heart medicine this is like that but worse i’m talking standing
on the edge of a black hole levels of sinking feelings okay I didn’t enjoy my shirt shopping experience
because the back of my mind was just going oh my god what if all my friends are sharing a hilarious joke and I’m missing out because i’m not on Twitter and they’ll still be laughing about it in 20 years and i’ll have missed out forever what if i get lost and I don’t have maps
I have no orienteering skills I could walk to Iraq what is a friend
of mine gets kidnapped and the kidnappers tried to call me and I need
to be Liam Neeson I can’t be Liam Nieeson i survived
just but it made me realize how quite worryingly dependent I am on my phone yeah being able to call someone an
emergency is helpful but I realized that without all of my handy apps I’m basically just a potato with a weird haircut there is an app for everything and I have most of them but i have no
actual skills as a human then the next day after that traumatising experience i
left the house and traveled for about half an hour when i suddenly realized
that the lump in my right front pocket was actually a deck of cards I have no idea why I had forgotten my
phone completely and it’s like this sixth sense awakened where I was hugely
aware of the gaping hole in my reality where my phone wasn’t pressing against
my leg in my pocket it’s not like it’s just the convenience that i missed
though I had this feeling like something was missing as if my phone was this magical object that
contains all of my power like I’ve been separated from my demon or got sucked
by a dementor which I think just came out wrong but I think you know what I
mean I felt like I left my baby on a bus or something I was really questioning my
emotions like was I really feeling guilty over abandoning an inanimate
object I mean I know I talk to Siri in bed
sometimes when I feeling kinda lonely but that doesn’t make much sense does it
and at that time I was with one of those annoying friends that’s like
oh i choose to leave my phone at home sometimes I think it’s healthy to unplug yourself from the
internet and just enjoy the world you know one of those weirdos with their
backwards priorities i was just like go away who are you my grandma at the
dinner table I’ll put your phone down in my day we
actually have to talk to each other and use our brain yeah okay but could you message your
friends and listen to music while pooping at the same time I think not
grandma this is the face of me taking an astral projected step back and looking
at myself I mean I know it’s handy but we’re
ruining our own immersion in the real world by having access to the internet with
us all times are we undoing millions of years of
evolutionary instincts as we inevitably turn into the fat floating people from
Wall-E i’m sure i could say something like hey try turning off your phone and
the next social event you’ll go to or why not go on an adventure using only your
wits and the contents of your trusty backpack but to be honest you’d probably
get eaten by a bear and even then you would be able to share
the pics of him eating your flesh as he does so yeah remember to charge your phone what about you guys how dependent know you
on your phone or what do you generally think about the importance that they
have on our life these days let me know down in the comments and if you haven’t
