Cell addiction in today's practice


I am in a love-hate relationship with the pocket-sized technological marvel called the cell phone.


Recently, I was somewhat amused by several incidents involving cell phones. An older gentleman was grocery shopping in the aisle ahead of me, and I listened as he slowly pushed his cart, consulting with his wife via cell phone regarding each purchase: "You wanted Heinz 57, but is the store brand okay? It's a dollar less. They are sold out of the chicken leg quarters at 29 cents a pound; do you still want chicken, or just forget it?"

Modern technology has removed many of life's little mysteries and created many more that aren't so sweet. I heard a statistic recently that over 60% of divorces can now be directly linked to information gleaned from the spouse's cell phone records, call log, and voicemails.
