WHY would a person need a

phone at school?
Because they exist, so they're a supposed necessity. How we ever
managed to get through high school without them is beyond me.
I laugh when people are incredulous that we don't have cell phones. "How
will you know if someone wants to talk to you?" Um...they'll call me on the
regular phone! "But what if you are out and someone calls?" They'll leave
a message, or call back later. "But what if you are out and someone needs
to get in touch with you?" There are so few instances where that would be
necessary. My husband and I have no problems with letting each other know
of our plans before either of us goes anywhere, so we don't need additional
communication. I suppose people think cell phones are necessary because
sometimes you are shopping and need someone's help in deciding what to get.
I have honestly, no joke, heard people talking on cell phones while
shopping, saying things like, "There are two brands of sour cream
here...which should I get?" Actually having a conversation about which
brand of sour cream to buy. Oh my god, just make a choice on your own. If
for some reason it's the wrong choice, then just buy a different brand next
