Those stories about the phone: the sadness and happiness of owning a phone at the first time(II)



Stories about a Cell Phone



In fact, it was true. One day father was out of town in a hurry and forgot to bring the cell phone. There was an emergency at home by chance. We did not know father friend’s phone number, also did not know the specific place where they were either. Finally we found father but the bad results had occurred.



After that incident, we knew that it is so inconvenient if we have no a cell phone in nowadays, especially when you are accustomed to using a mobile phone but you have no one in your hands suddenly. It will drive you mad



Summer vacation was drawing to a close and the next day I had to go. That night I packed the cell phone and its charger. Father saw me and said nothing. Then he told me that he would buy one cell phone when income and expenditure account of our home become better. That was contrary to what I had expected because father had promised me. I was disappointing and said nothing, but still foisted the phone and charger into my bag when I left home the next morning.

Those stories about the phone: the sadness and happiness of owning a phone at the first time(I)


I hadn’t a mobile phone until I was a sophomore. Actually, that phone is owned by my father but I “robbed” it from his hands.


My father teaches at a middle school in my hometown. Looking as an outsider, my family is really affluent in my hometown because my father has a two thousand RMB wage per month. But on account of our four childern and all of us were going to school, so almost all the income of my family was used on our school study. Nearly other expenses were omitted. For example, my parents didn’t acquire a new clothes throughout the year. My mother uses low cost skin care products to wipe her face over many years, so that she looks darker and older than her peers now. And in order to save money she has never to do her hair. My father smokes and drinks very little. Although he is qualified high relatively in the school, he did not take the initiative to buy a mobile phone. Finally father had a cell phone when I was in my second year at college. Each teacher got a cell phone, of course, the cheapest Nokia 1110(I learned the phone’s model later) as the welfare of Teacher’s Day.

My college was so far away from my hometown, and I really missed my family and my friends very much. So the moment when I saw father’s phone at the first sight at home in summer vacation, I sprouted the idea that I wanted to using the phone by myself.
