BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE


My cell phone hip pouch was one of my essential accessories whenever I went out - cool, comfy, easily reachable. Until my cousin told me last week that I was taking a big risk. She peppered her talk with real life incidents where her friends had lost mobiles worth five times my Nokia 3315. "It's too easy to grab and run" was her argument.

Since then, sufficiently scared, I have been struggling to find an alternate way to carry my phone. I absolutely detest the idea of looking like a dog on a leash, so the neck tag is ruled out. If I were to put it in my shirt pocket, I would be fighting medical research which claims that cell phone radiation causes heart attack. If I put it in my trouser pockets.. darn, I don't even want to go in there! Where else? For once, I wish I were born a girl - I could carry handbags around!

So I'm left to choose between cardiac failure and impotence. That's just SUPER! For now, shirt pocket it is, because I read in a journal that a healthy sex life keeps the heart healthy. Aha!

Einsteinophile said...

Wat a thought!!!
And wats the conclusion?????

Cool stuff man. Few suggestions:

1. Better dont use a cell phone till you get married and may be for few months after marriage if you want to have it in ur pant pocket :) just kidding

2. Make sure your shirt has pocket to the right side. Knock of your left pocket.

3. May be have a shirt pocket in your triceps or wear a detachable cargo pant. Those pants normally has the pockets next to ur knees.

4. Very valid one you can go in for anti radiation device. Check this site http://www.phatphones.com/Anti%20radiation%20devices%20for%20mobiles.htm#biophone

Those are my four cents! :)

Hey, there's always the pocket in the back of the pants.. no heart attacks/impotence.. i cant thing any hazard while keepin it there... of course.. got to be careful while u sit down... and dont keep some aweful ringtone while u place it there! LOL..

Vinesh said...

@Adengappa: I'll do that buddy..

@Vani: Hahahaha! *sidey glance*

@Einsteinophile: My conclusion is in my post. But we're trying to reach the best solution in this comments section. LOL

Vinesh said...

@Kary: Wow, you got some solid ideas there! I checked out the website, and they're all costing dollars :-(

All I can do is wear a Murugan dollar and pray that nothing bad happens due to the radiation, LOL

Vinesh said...

@Magnus Astrum: "..and dont keep some aweful ringtone while u place it there" ROTFLMAO. Mannn...ur too much ..hahaha.

But who knows, if we put it in the back of our pants, maybe tomorrow they'll scare us with piles LOL!

"All I can do is wear a Murugan dollar and pray that nothing bad happens due to the radiation"
