    Last Sunday I was at Efteling solo with no phone (stopped working a few days earlier) and I didn't miss it at all! Most of the queues were fast moving though unlike Megafobia

    I don't have a phone, I often don't have a newspaper.
    Never have a problem amusing myself in a queue though.
    I can recommend the "I" newspaper.
    Only 65p and it easily folds into an inside jacket pocket.
    If I had a phone, my weekly coaster count would reduce by about 50%.

    Didn't the "I" Newspaper cost 20p or something a few years back?

    Correct, added a shilling every couple of years.
    1.20 At the weekend as of next weekend, but with no supplements, and 2 free staples, it is very good value for actual newsprint.

    You don't own a phone at all? Bravo sir.

    I personally hate how the whole world has become besotted by them and can't be without one for 5 mins. One thing I love to do, other than go to theme parks of course, is go to loads of gigs and music festivals. Smart phones have ruined the experience a bit sadly.

    I have a nice landline with a cable on the end.
    Never owned a mobile.
    Never felt the need to get one.
    Stops work getting in the way of leisure.
    Work started to insist...I laughed in their faces...dug my own hole.
    Bet with three mates over who would crack.
    I won...
    Still don't know my wife's mobile number.
    It is written in the phone book.
    Probably.

    I love it. Hahahaha

    Wish they didn't exist. They obviously have their merits and are more convenient but my word they've made the whole world rude and annoying.
