CrackBerry Withdrawals

If you have a BlackBerry, more popularly known as a CrackBerry, then you may have been affected by a service outage Monday afternoon that left you unable to use your portable device as well as crippled your ability to act normally in a non-virtual social environment.

If you don't have a CrackBerry then you might have noticed that some of your friends, family and co-workers, and even total strangers, were having symptoms of gradual withdrawal. If a person started to sweat profusely, shake one or more legs uncontrollably, or constantly pick up and set down a hand-held digital device for endless hours, you may have been looking at a CrackBerry addict.

Not only are Black Berries tasty, by their tiny purple fruit also act like terrestrial antennas for hand-held digital devices.

That's right, for one full afternoon countless thousands of people had to resort to speaking to one another, watching TV, reading, daydreaming or spending the afternoon doing chores. Many of the people who decided to talk to another person simply talked about the CrackBerry outage.

If you or someone you know has a CrackBerry addiction, don't despair. There's help. There's hope. Just point your BlackBerry over to eHow's website and read up on "How to Break a BlackBerry Addiction."
