The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

I can't tell if the comma belongs before or after "my wife"

Can go either way, depending on the couple.

For me, it would be before :(

I have a friend in kollel who just turned 30, I asked him when will he’s start thinking of getting a job, He said he’s starting to think about what he’d like to do, but he has 1 hakpada, that no matter what, he’s not getting a smartphone. I told him good luck on that, doubt you can find any job like that. Now I know that most here will think he’s nuts,  and I really hope this doesn’t turn into another popcorn thread, but I was wondering if anyone could think of any respectable job that you can get by with just a flip phone?
Just about any job if you plan it right

I work for a company where our best employees are formerly from kollel and are non smart phone users.

Think about it for a second, imagine how much more productive you would be if you didn't have you phone.

Or more likely people who take  9-to-5 jobs answer emails 24/7 . Once their office gets used to them answering emails at all hours it taken for granted and it’s hard to pull back.
Someone I know got a secretarial job, and they offered to pay for internet in her house and she said no, because then she knew she would be enslaved to answering emails and doing minor work at night.
I'm not who you think I am.

We had a janitor who didn't have a smartphone clean our floors in 2.5 hours. Now we have one with that takes 6+.

Quote from nymag.com
"
Early in our conversation, Barnett’s cell phone rings. He pulls out what looks like a flip phone circa 1997. He’s not wielding a BlackBerry—­standard-issue for a businessman of his station—nor, I notice, are there any computers or electronic devices in his office, apart from the Bose Wave radio sitting on a shelf behind his desk. “I’m a dinosaur,” Barnett says when I ask him why he doesn’t use a computer. “My secretary gives me my e-mails. I have financial people who do spreadsheets. I understand the concepts of how all these things work, I just don’t know how to use them. I’m getting along fine just like this.” Barnett says he doesn’t trust technology. “I think the e-mail is very dangerous. I see people write things they’d never dream of saying.”

What Barnett lacks in technological literacy he compensates for with raw intelligence. “He does the numbers in his head,” says Sue Ault, who’s worked with Barnett. “That’s what’s scary. You go in and show him this big spreadsheet, he’ll look at it and instantly pick out something that’s wrong with it."
