Cell Phones, I




Olive’s grandfather had always resisted new technology.

He had worked in the family grocery store in a small town in North Carolina since he was a child.

“Call me old-fashioned, but I believe in face-to-face dialog; it’s the only true form of human communication.”

He felt this way, even though all his friends, neighbors, and customers had gone ahead and adapted the latest gadgets on the market.

Finally after years of pressure from his wife and children, he finally gave in — and had a (landline) telephone installed in his home.
