Ode to flip phnes
Flip phones fit into my pockets.
Flip phones can be answered singlehandedly, and without being looked at.
One can talk on a flip phone while hands free - no blue tooth or ear piece required.
Flip phones do not require a data plan.
Flip phones are not attention grabbers - they sit quietly in a pocket where they belong, and do not scream at you when xyz desides to share with the world that he or she just sneezed.
For everything else I have a PC.
And in case you are wondering - I am a middle-aged female software developer with two kids - and I love gardening.
Interestingly, my husband, who is - insidently - a middle-aged software developer with two kids as well, also has a flip phone, but he is does not care for gardeneing at all.
