I am not renowned for my skills with a mobile phone. Infact, I can honestly say I don't really know how to use one, apart from making and receiving calls. You notice I said "calls" and not texts. I still don't know how to do without help.
Now you might find this strange, and it is, unless you know why I have an aversion to mobile phones. Basically, they make me feel strange and I only ever use them in an emergency. I don't even know my number.
I had mercury poisoning you see caused by my dental amalgam fillings and often people who suffer mercury poisoning become very sensitive to chemicals and electromagnetic fields. I can't spend too much time on the computer either without feeling weird, although I am considerably better now we've got rid of our WiFi internet connection.
If you are interested in learning more you might want to visit my site or watch my video on YouTube, but in the meantime, here is a joke, which I thought, was appropriate for me as I am so technologically challenged!
I have no idea who wrote it, but "thankyou" - it made my day.
Three women, two younger and one senior citizen were sitting naked in a sauna. Suddenly there was a beeping sound.
The young woman pressed her forearm and the beep stopped. The others looked at her questioningly.
"That was my pager", she said. "I have a microchip under the skin of my arm".
A few minutes later, a phone rang.
The second young woman lifted her palm to her ear and when she'd finished, explained –
"That was my mobile phone. I have a microchip in my hand".
The older woman felt very low tech. Not to be out done she decided she had to do something just as impressive. She stepped out of the sauna, went to the bathroom and returned with a piece of toilet paper hanging from her rear end.
The others raised their eyebrows and smiled at her.
The older woman finally said –
"Well, will you look at that. I'm getting a fax!"
