Did we manage without Cell Phones?

At the Supermarket, I was unable to find the specific pasta my wife wanted. I called her and we discussed the shapes that were available, eventually making a choice. Meanwhile, an elderly couple, also selecting pasta, watched me.

When I hung up, the woman said, “I see men like that here all the time. Let me ask you a question. How could you ever manage without that phone? What did you do before we had these phones?”
It’s very simple,” I said.
“Oh, really?” she replied. “Tell me.”
“If I didn’t have this phone,” I said, “my wife would have to do all the shopping.”
