    What would you do if you left your cell phone at home?

    If you weren't far from your house would you return home to get the cell phone, or suffer from cell phone anxiety all day long?

    i wouldn't care in the least. i leave my cell at home all the time and it doesn't bother me. why people are so obsessed over cells blows my mind and shows how messed up some folks priorities are.

    This has occured and it never bothered me.  My life is not tied to my cell phone., neither is my day.  There are many other opportunities to reach me or my reaching someone without it needing to be my cell phone.

    I'd be realistic and go back to get the phone.

    I did this just yesterday.  I went to reach for my phone and discovered I left it at home.  I felt like a lost puppy the whole day.  I don't know what we did before we had all our schedules, photos,etc. on our iphones!

    I am one of the lucky ones..I had a life before cell phones..we called them land lines ( public phones)..maybe it was a more organized world we lived in..we made a grocery list and never forgot anything, and if we did, oh well...the stress level was lowered because no one could call you to complain,ask questions,work,,kids and family time was on hold, until you got back..and there were probably fewer auto accidents...and now if I forget my phone big deal..I enjoy the radio or silence whichever I choose.....until I return home and my family chews me out..because they couldn't reach me !

    I would turn right around, and go back home to get it.
