Many friends have asked me this question before, ‘Eh, how come you downgrade your phone ah? Everyone is upgrading their mobile phones here and there….you downgrade your phone. Why?’
You see, whilst there is absolutely, irrefutably nothing wrong with a Blackberry per se, it’s a nuisance to me.
Oh yeah, the features are lovely.
Oh yeah, you can tweet and update your Facebook account right there and then?
Oh yeah, people can ‘chat’ with you no matter where you are.
Oh yeah, your clients can find you and clarify important matters with you regardless of time and location.
Hang on. That doesn’t REALLY sound like good news to me.
If I were to be completely honest with you, I think Blackberry will kill me. I will have no life to speak off if I had a Blackberry. I will not be able to turn off because I will be consistently online – and Lord knows I shouldn’t because I am a blasted alcoh….sorry….workaholic. I would be in bed trying to relax, meditating or reading my book and when the phone beeps, I check and it’s bye-bye ME TIME.
The problem is…I can’t NOT answer. It’s just not ME. If a client beeped me on my Blackberry at , I would answer because….well, you know….I am a retard.
So, no thank you. No Blackberry for me because the only kind of berry I like are the ones that either goes into the mouth or is mashed up, fermented and comes in a bottle, thank you very much.
