Ask Sam: Phoneless Boy Reply

Dear Sam,

I don’t have a phone, and I’m like the only person in the school who doesn’t own one. It’s really embarrassing when my friends ask for my phone number, and I give them my mom’s. I don’t know if I should tell my friends I don’t have one and face the social suicide, or lie to them. PLEASE help this phoneless being!

Dear Phoneless Boy,

I understand that at this time, especially for a person your age,  having a phone may seem like the most important thing, but you may be overreacting. You should be honest and tell your friends that you don’t have a phone. I’m pretty sure they will understand. If they don’t, and perhaps they tease you or don’t accept you, then maybe they weren’t meant to be your friends.
