Teaching as an adjunct can be a lot of fun. It is also challenging. As I have encountered a number of situations, I realize such a blog can be helpful, both to me and to others.

The Cell Phone Speech

Soon the informative speeches start and, as always, I am interested to see the topics students will come up with. Of course there are the standards but it is always fun to hear some of the more unorthodox speeches. I think back to a student who gave a speech about cell phones and talk about how agents get people to purchase cell phones, to switch from one company to another.

This student used to do that while in high school and he confirmed that a umber of these agents will lie and say whatever they need to just to get you to switch, so they can get a commission. I know I have felt that agents have lied to me at times.

Of course, there are the honest agents as well and there can be some good deals available. You have the at&t wireless deals that might be worth checking out. There are other deals as well. Compare the deals. So if you hear something about free Samsung phones and something else about free Motorola phones, take the time to find out which deal is better. Is everything you’ve heard true? Maybe. What can you get ion writing?

Perhaps you want to take a moment and assess if you want a blackberry and if a free free Blackberry Curve is your best option. Maybe it is or maybe you are just better with something like a free Nokia phones.

Regardless of what you end up getting, make sure to check and double check. Maybe you’ll end up with a free Palm Centro. As long as you know what you are getting into, have not made a snap decession and have checked your facts and information, you should be fine.

Good luck and remember the power of public speaking can make people aware of the good and the bad!
