It amazes me how cell phones have become the norm.
To me they’re nothing more than the perfect storm.
Nope, cell phones and me, we find it hard to get along.
Everything I attempt to do on them comes out wrong.
It seems more difficult than before just to keep up.
Every time I think I’ve got it, my files go corrupt.
All this new technology comes to me at too fast a rate.
There was a time I was savvy and was always up to date.
I’d be first with the newest rage, the latest state of the art.
Nowadays I’m totally lost even before I start.
When my phone rings, I’m never sure exactly what to do.
Last time I pushed this, touched that and squeezed it too.
I hear the tone when I get a message so I know it’s there,
But I never get to read it despite looking for it everywhere.
There’s no consistency and nothing’s intuitive that I can dig.
Which reminds me, whatever happened to WYSIWYG?
Another day with my old phone would’ve driven me to booze.
So I got a new one they said would be so much easier to use.
Well they were wrong. It’s even worse than the one before.
Somehow I see myself eventually chucking it out the door.
You can have all these techy new phones; they’re just not my thing.
If you ask me I’d rather go back to using two cans and a string!
