Cell Phone Clutter

I recently decided to examine my cell phone contacts.

Upon doing so, I realized that quite a few fall into one of the following categories:

1.) Have met the person at a concert/bar and have titled that person accordingly (aka “Joey Oyster Pub”). If I didn’t bother to get their last name [which is usually for a reason] and can’t recall what they look like, chances are we are not destined for a lifelong friendship.

2.)Have worked on an assignment/project with them once, and have only called them once during that time. I don’t forsee any Freshman year Ethics class reunions in the future.

3.) Are co-workers who I traded numbers with strictly for emergencies. I can’t imagine myself calling “Cindy,” the ex-cheerleader I worked with who was about as outgoing as Oscar the Grouch.

4.) Is someone who I’m pretty certain miraculously made his or her way into my phone.

The problem? I can’t seem to part with any of these people. My philosophy of “you’ll never know when you need it” [which also applies to clothing, elementary school papers, half-torn ticket stubs and sheets of paper from street vendors], refuses to allow me to rid myself of cell phone clutter.

How do you know when it’s time to cut the conversational cord?

  1. It’s hard to delete those numbers! But, the one good thought is that if you do delete the numbers, there’s a pretty good chance if you needed it for some reason, you’d find someone who has it 🙂

  2. I know what you mean! I still have way too many names in my phone, mostly names that I could call to get a hold of you! Oh, you can delete that x-cheerleader… Ha!
