I recently heard an adult say they did not know their spouses cell phone number because it was saved on their cell phone. They had never bothered to memorize it and had no clue where or how to find it without their cell phone. I found that very interesting.
In many cases, children can no longer tell you their home phone number (if
they have one) or their parent's cell phone number. I find that
I remember a time when I could rattle off my home phone number, my closest friends phone numbers, family member's phone numbers, work phone numbers, and even the local theater's phone number. I can't do that now, but I do have my husband's cell phone number memorized, as well as our children's number. Frankly, the rest are saved on my cell phone. However, I am still a firm believer in keeping my physical address book up to date.
In the past, when I carried a purse, my address/telephone book was always
part of my handbag contents and I carried it with me everywhere. Since
I no longer carry a purse, I do rely on my cell phone for friend's numbers
if I am away from home, but my physical address book is still safe and
available at home.
Times have certainly changed. The phone company no longer prints phone
books for us. Therefore,
keeping a personal telephone & address book should not be outdated.
Let's face it! If you lose your cell phone, or if the phone simply dies, you literally lose the ability to call anyone even if you can borrow a phone.
Telephone & Address Books
Having a specific place for phone numbers & addresses is extremely helpful. Just the other day, I watched my own husband frantically search scraps of paper and notes for a friends phone number. He did find it, but it would have been so much easier for him if he had it written in an address & phone book.
For me, having a telephone & address book is a necessity. Most likely, I would be bald if I frequently had to search for a specific slip of paper.
If you don't already have a telephone & address book, perhaps you
should consider purchasing one and writing important numbers in it. After
all, you don't want to lose contact information along with a cell phone.
