There is no denying this conviction that, in this contemporary era, cellular phones have become an integral part of our life. People have developed this feeling that being connected is a must-have. Moreover, our mobile phone addiction levels have reached a tipping point.
However, `the usage of mobile phones is restricted at numerous places, like medical institutions, religious places, libraries and air travel.
Where was it?, and When was it?
Likewise, I went through a similar situation two months ago, when I visited a bank, and the concerned authorities did not allow me to use my mobile phone.
Although I had not had any plan to go to the bank, I went there when I realized that I forgot to collect my chequebook.
I immediately rushed to do bank, leaving my other works pending. Since using the phone is risky while driving, I decided to make calls to my clients from the bank while waiting in the queue.
But to my dismay, the bank manager did not allow me to use my phone.
Why you were not allowed?
The banks usually have too much cast at their disposal, due to this reason, they are more vulnerable to robbery and other criminal activities. And, for most crimes offenders utilize the services of cell phones. Hence to safeguard the cash, banks do not allow the usage of mobiles phones.
How did you feel about it?
I wanted my phone to inform my clients. I wished to communicate that I would contact them later due to my sudden visit to the bank.
Since I was unable to pick the calls from the clients, I had tremendous stress.
