You were kind of not cool if you didn’t have this phone but I kinda wish we could go back to this tbh. It was the perfect phone to SLAM shut when you got mad at someone on the other end. Now you just touch a button to hang up, a.k.a. laaaaaaaaame. How are our friends and hook ups supposed to gauge our anger now?
