According to a recent report, 80 per cent of the UK’s population now has a mobile phone.
Some of the people interviewed admitted that they wouldn’t be able to function properly without their mobile, it would be like losing ‘a third limb’.
How ridiculous darling.
Of course, mobiles are brilliant in emergencies or urgent contact, but how many of those do we have in a day dear?
Where I object to their use is in company. You’re having a conversation with someone and some daft ring tone goes off, and, conditioned like a laboratory rat, they have to answer – immediately.
You’re left sitting there, sipping your Pina Colada, while they prattle puerile drivel down their beloved mobile.
We are becoming such an ill-mannered society.
