Disconnected: Who can't do it

I'm gonna start off with a mini list of people who should not/ cannot try this experiment
Each with obvious reasons, you'll know ;)
  1. People in luuurrrrvvveeee 
  2. Parents of little kids
  3. People in sales operations
  4. Job seekers
You see, during the floods, a major part of the city faced extended blackouts. There is this guy at my workplace who actually preferred to travel through the rain to get to the office and charge his phone so he could talk to his girlfriend. So I'm guessing that he has a snowball's chance in a forest fire for surviving 15 days without his phone :)

Parents of babies probably won't even notice if they have their phone or not. But parents of little ones at play school or primary school definitely would need phones to feel secure that their kids are safe. The times, they are a changing, and the world as well. So :)

I see guys who take care of industrial operation having two phone, both of which are ringing constantly, I'm sure they would welcome a phone break like a parched camel in a dessert, but they mostly can only dream of that circumstance.

And finally, Job Seekers. In this age of almost exclusive online application of jobs, being reachable on the mobile phone seems quintessential. I had to completely forget job hunting and accept that it's a process on pause for the moment.

I know there are many others who feel like they can't live without their phones, or like life would stop without it. But I don't think there is such a pressing need to be so connected for anyone.
Those are the ones who should probably try this experiment for sure!
