I’m Free!

I just cancelled my cell phone subscription — that string is cut; I’m not even wireless anymore. It feels great. Yet, ridding myself of this technology was more emotionally difficult than I thought it would be. Once the client rep at Bell Mobility got past the initial shock (“You want to what?” Cancel?”), she implied that I was taking unnecessary risk by cancelling. And didn’t I care about my family’s security? If risk and recklessness are defined in Canada by refusing expensive and unnecessary technology, then I will wear the title “rebel” with pride. If we all got rid of our cell phones, and spent the same amount of money on education, or health care, or clean water, Canada would be a better place and we wouldn’t be interrupted in the middle of movies.
