A hypothetical situation for you to chew over.
Suppose, in a fit of carelessness, you leave your mobile phone at home when you go out of the house. Which of these feelings is worse?
- The prolonged sense of unease that attends because you can't be sure that the world isn't falling apart because you aren't able to take a call from the King of Town/President of Earth/Mechapope, or
- The disappointment when you get home to find nary a text message, voicemail or missed call. In six hours.
As ever, your opinions, anecdotes and deprecating witticisms are invited in the comments.
PS. At least my illegal butcher's shop didn't get closed down. Phew.
