You new-fangled devil!
I'm old enough to remember a time back before we all carried phones with us all the time. We had to use a combination of our voices, ears and memory to arrange in advance that we'd meet someone at a scheduled place, at a scheduled time.
It's a wonder the human race managed to survive at all, up until Apple and Google came along to provide us with all the 'features' evolution forgot to add.
