One Of My Least Favorite Things

“Here, let me put you on speaker phone!”

It’s well-known that I don’t like cell phones (see my article for VICE Magazine), but the truth is I don’t like any kind of phone, not a rotary phone, not a cordless phone, not a payphone, in fact, no phone at all. I’m partial to the phrase “A phone is an appliance, not an obligation,” and I treat all phones like appliances, annoying appliances, appliances that I want to silence or rip out of people’s hands.
