I have three days a year where nobody around me is allowed to use any technology, well beyond TV or radio but no phones or computers, no Twits or Tweets, no Faceblech or any of that crap and NO TR!! My B-Day, Father's Day and Christmas Day, NO computing allowed! I also go camping where there is no signals, if there is, I keep going until signals are lost. I have one friend who wanted to come last year and he was stopped on the side of a logging road, waving me over to say 'let's jump camp here". Knowing the area, I am not about to stay in a little pull off for a weekend so I coxed him to keep going. The next morning before 6AM he was driving off down the road so he could get a signal and test friends, it's sad, pathetic and most hideous, last time he gets an invite!
Absolutely the most pathetic thing I've seen, he couldn't even sleep properly knowing he didn't have a signal to text people. When friends and I go to Whistler for a weekend, he'll stay in the condo all weekend, near the hockey/football/soccer game and text all weekend, non stop. Same if we go to Victoria or anywhere else, shuts in the room and watches sports while texting...nice holiday, way to join in the fun! Saddest part is he's two years older than me but just has to have constant attention, very insecure despite his loud, crass, outspoken personality.
