I used to feel the same way... but I was constantly having trouble getting ahold of my assistant on the phone. We purchased a set of radios last year and they've come in handy more than enough times to justify their cost! Amazon has a couple of decent deals for 8 and 10 packs that are good. If your district has a frequency get something you can program to it, otherwise get something that can do MURS frequencies, which anyone can use without a license. FRE works well, but each family of anyone using the radios is responsible for having a license.
The FCC doesn't crack down on you often, but occasionally something will interfere and they'll track you down. Best to just play within the rules.
