It's apparently a common thing for writers to forget cell phones exist. My first two books (and the start of my third) were in places without them, but now... well, I just have a note when editing now to remember cell phones.

@DuthOlec One time for a writing workshop I exclusively gave the feedback "couldn't they have used their phone here to solve this?"
and everyone hated me and i don't think i got invited back, or maybe that was the last one. hopefully that, i hope i killed that group with my bad takes.
