COOP & CASEY: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON A MOM WHO REFUSES TO USE A CELL PHONE?

February 28, 2019

We read about a mom who's 34, she works for her family's machine shop and she doesn't have a cell phone. She had a smartphone for a few years but found out she just wasted more time on it than she should. The breaking point was a few years ago when her daughter was swimming and saying "Lookit, mommy, lookit!" and she was playing Angry Birds, ignoring her kid.

If she wants to make a call, she uses a landline, borrows a friend's or just waits. She tells us it's amazing and freeing and as it turns out, she really doesn't miss it. Yes, there have been times when she wishes she had had one, but she doesn't and has no plans to get one.

BUT her friends think it's annoying they can't text her last minute changes of plans or just text to say hi and check in. She's knows she's not CRAZY crazy, but she feels good about not having one while everyone tells her she's wrong and she's nuts.
