No-Phone Nights

By December 10, 2012

Follow me on:

I was recently at a holiday party with other married couples. We wives got to talking about our biggest pet peeve: our husband's addiction to his cell phone. Now, that he can surf the Internet, e-mail or text his buddies, and make and take calls on his little friend, he seems to do so at all hours of the day and night. It's enough already. I have a cell phone, too. And I actually use mine for work, which is something my husband rarely does. But I rarely, if ever, use it when we're together or when we're spending time with our son. His, on the other hand, seems attached to his hand. I heard this complaint loud and clear from so many of the other women I know. So, I have decided that our husbands should give us the gift of no-phone nights this holiday season. Shut off the electronic devices and make like you're on an airplane. Look into each other's eyes, make out, or simply have a conversation. How does that sound, ladies?

Since I am from an other generation my husband can barley operate his simple cell phone so can not relate to this but i do see my son and his friends always on these things and i would find it very distracting
