    ABC News: Addicted to BlackBerry? We Want to Know!

    Advertisement





    Found this via bbhub:
    There's a reason they're nicknamed "CrackBerrys." The use of the ubiquitous BlackBerry handheld e-mailing device has become such a problem for some people that their families are in revolt.


    Is your husband or wife addicted to their BlackBerry? Are your kids hiding it so they can have mommy or daddy's full attention? If so, ABC News wants to hear from you! -- Submit your BlackBerry Story

    Some might not admit it, but I am sure anyone who owns one is addicted. The only time I go more than 15 minutes, without touching my BB, is when I'm sleeping. If I wake up in the middle of the night I make sure it is where I left it.

    Re: ABC News: Addicted to BlackBerry? We Want to Know!

    so i gave me girlfriend the link....and this is what she sent me

    "I don't even know where to start... My boyfriend bought a "crackberry" about 10 months ago. Ever since the first day he got it he does nothing but sit around and do whatever it is they do on these "things". It get's so annoying when i come over to spend time with him and he spends more time with his "crackberry" then he does with me. Then when i try to take it away or tell him to get off of it, he gets angry and throws a fit, "Jess, just give me five more minutes, okay?" or "Just one more game, i promise" then half-hour later or ten games later he finally gets off, when I'm getting ready to leave. When he is on it and i ask what hes doing, he turns the phone and says, "oh, nothing..." yeah we've all heard that before. He won't even let me touch the phone, like its blow up in flames or something. Sometimes i wish i was the "crackberry", then maybe i would get some attention from him. But untill then i guess it's something I will have to compete with. Hmm...i wonder what he would do if i got one..."

    haha
