Headlining this what do you think kind of gives me some leeway here, because the impetus of the story is something Jessica Simpson said on a Nashville radio station this morning. As you know, I have instituted a ban on Jessica Simpson which is why you never heard me say "beer me" yesterday or asking the question, "how many beers does it take before you would sleep with Jessica Simpson?" Oh, and then for good measure I would have posted that crazy double vision ass photo that is making its way around the internet. You know, the one that gives you a headache the second you look at it. I'm not cruel enough to post it here, but I'm sure someone would be willing to post it in the comments.
Anyway, I got distracted. During this radio interview, Jessica Jealousy said that she knows for sure Carrie Underwood is not calling Tony Romo because she checks the call log on his phone. Setting aside the fact that he has two phones and that he could delete the calls after they talk, I want to know if you think this is right. I did not listen to the interview. I saw some quotes from it. The quotes make it appear as if she is doing this on the sly (not anymore) and being really sneaky.
I consider my phone to be the equivalent of a woman's purse. If I hand it to you and ask you to look something up while I am driving or find some contact really quickly, then to me it is the same as you telling a guy to go get your purse or telling him there is a condom in the zipper. Whatever. If he goes into your purse for any other reason, or starts digging around, you are going to be pissed. You probably don't have anything to hide, but it is your stuff and you honestly can't remember everything that is in there. Same with the phone. Do you think as the significant other of someone you can just start scrolling through calls and contacts and reading all the text messages? What gives you that right? I probably don't have anything to hide, but maybe someone sent me something they don't want anyone else to see.
In my opinion, when you are in a relationship, you either trust someone or you don't. If you don't, then move on. Are you trying to catch your partner doing something wrong? Why are you trying to catch them? If you want to catch them so much, then move on. Because I guarantee you that if you are trying to catch them, that even if they are not doing anything, you are making their life miserable because you are probably the most jealous person on the planet.
I can honestly say that I feel uncomfortable even with the idea of looking at the contacts or call log of a phone which is not mine. Let me know what you think. Fair game to look at your partner's phone and mail and e-mail and entire workings of their life, or, not so much?
