I use technology for communication, but I don’t have a Blackberry or an iPhone. I use an outdated cell phone, but I’m fine with it. Nicolas Cage
Dear MacGuyver, Enclosed is a rubber band, a paper clip, and a drinking straw. Please save my dog. Peter Griffin
Last week I read about this young guy who appears to be finally following RUDE girl’s trend. He has embraced old mobile phone technology. You can read about his story here

RUDE boy has a smartphone supplied by his workplace, and it is so annoying for me to operate. I suffer with Essential Tremor so the screen jumps all over the place. The keypad is very difficult for my fingers to navigate because of tremor.
My hand-me-up old Motorola mobile phone, by comparison to the smartphone, is easier to use because of the touchpad. And because it has a flip cover I do not have to worry about screen damage. I also like the functions which appear to be more intuitive to how I enter data and text message.
And with RUDE’S frugal ways who can not like a $9 per month plan with 100 free text messages! Phone calls out are expensive but I do not make them. I prank RUDE boy and he rings me. Of course anyone can call me at their expense.
All that has to happen now, is that I find someone to give me their old Motorola, as the one I have is being held together by my favourite type of rubber band. These rubber bands are purple and come wrapped around bunches of broccolini and asparagus. Everything pretty much is reused in our household!
Anyways, here is proof in this video below that purple rubber bands can practically save anything.
Beat The Man and be your own MacGuyver!
