Usually I’m not such a fool as to buy useless things just for the sake of having them. But I’m not perfect. As getting Internet connection from BT meant automatically getting a landline number and connection as well, I though, hey, what the heck, it’s only £10 and bought a phone.
It arrived, I hang it up in the hall – and then I sat down and wondered. Given that I have a mobile and avoid telephoning as much as humanly possible, what the fuck did I think I was buying it for?
