You may remember this previous blog post in which I asked if a landline could save your life during a natural disaster?
Today I want you to raise your hand if you still have a landline.
We did have a landline for 26 years up until the day we moved, I also had a seperate business landline as well. However, since the move, I have only used my mobile phone which gave me pause recently when I powered it off before going to bed.
You see, I don’t keep my mobile device in the bedroom and usually only turn it off when hubby is home. Last Saturday he was away overnight to visit family in Maryland and for some strange reason I powered off the phone before going to bed.
It wasn’t until the following morning that it dawned on me that it could have been a major mistake. Had hubby or either of our sons tried to reach me, they wouldn’t have been able to do so nor would I have been able to immediately make an emergency call.
While standing in line at the grocery store, I was engaged in conversation with a woman who mentioned she had left her phone at home and that she too had recently given up her landline because it was only used to call her mobile phone when she couldn’t find it!
I laughed and shared my story as well, but now I am thinking that I should get another landline when we move.
Raise your hand if you still have a landline!
