Would you survive the day without your mobile phone?
Everyone's favorite gadget is now considered a necessity.
This is best illustrated by the following conversation.
Dude 1: "Bro, it's hard to imagine life without our cellphones, no?"
Dude 2: "Oo, nga. Kahit tindera sa kanto may cellphone. Bakit naman dati nabuhay tayong walang cellphone? (True. Even street vendors have them. Remember the time when mobile phones were not yet invented?)"
Dude 1: "Iba na panahon ngayon. Pag naiwan mo nga telepono mo sa bahay di ka na mapakali, eh. (Times have changed. Don't you feel uneasy when you accidentally forget your phone at home?)"
Dude 2: "Bakit naman dati kahit walang cellphone nagkikita pa din sa oras na napag-usapan? (How come before, even without mobile phones, we were able to keep all our appointments?)"
Dude 1: "Ngayon kasi madali ng mang-indyan. Isang text lang, may palusot ka na. (Now, you can just send a text message and make excuses why you can't make it.)"
That dude has a very valid point.
