Barrie Man A Throw Back To Another Era.
Rob Sage, 56, currently living outside of Barrie Ont., surprised many people in the local area, by openly admitting, he still uses a flip top cell phone, with a $10 a month plan. Sage admits he has been using the antiquated technology for over 5 years now. He went on to explain how he can drive without using a cell phone, can shop without it, run a business without it constantly in his hand, can still keep in contact with family and friends.
He also admitted he has never sent or received a text message, has never checked his email from a mobile device, in fact at times has gone 7 or 8 hours in a row without checking email.
He still updates his facebook page from a desk top computer!
Sage still prefers one on one conversation…face to face. He can go through an entire meal in a restaurant without technological interruptions, and will often maintain a one on one conversation for hours on end.
He does have a website that he admits is a very important part of his business, and he will spend many hours a month working on it. However, he can also walk away from it, and still lead a full and productive life.
Perhaps even more shockingly, Sage also admitted he has never played a video game. Never. And may never.
Despite his technology handicap, Sage still believes he lives a full and productive lifestyle. He somehow sees and enjoys a world around him that is somewhat larger than a palm sized video screen.
He still moves forward, despite also living backward in a by gone era… from almost 5 years ago.
