I have a cell phone. Yes, I use it more than I should. However, when I drive, I do have a hands free set, so both hands are on the wheel. When I am in a store I either have it off, or leave it in my car. Right now, it is in my car as I am home, and have regular phone anyway if I need it.
However, people really piss me off with their over usage of the cell phone. Yesterday, we are in the climbing gym when Mr. Prick Climber (he is always a prick, but yesterday he was king of all pricks) is talking on his cell phone while belaying his climbing partner. (for those of you who don't climb, he was the one on the floor making sure that his partner would be safe as she climbed). Obviously, the person on the phone was more important to him than the life of his climbing partner. What a fuckin' Prick.
Next, we have mega bitch at the nail salon, getting her nails done, and yapping away on the phone very very loudly, while totally oblivious to Asian woman doing her nails. She was obviously oblivious to the rest of us in there who were giving her evil death ray looks while she yapped to her gal pal about their lunch plans. Who the fuck cares, lady get off the phone!
Fat bastard last weekend while we are at the "We Will Rock You" show in Vegas decides to leave his phone on, and gets a call during the show. He is in the row ahead of us, and we are in row 7. Excuse me asshole, didn't pay $97 to listen to you yap through this show, thanks.
And last but certainly not least, to the inconsiderate fuck head who decides to call everyone he or she has ever known while at the movie theater. What the Fuck??? Is it really that important to let everyone know you are at the movie theater?
What happened to the day when you walked out of your house and didn't use the phone until you came home again. Or if you really needed to talk to someone while you were out, you went and found a pay phone to use. Our lives have not gotten anymore important than it had 20 years ago, we just think we have.
I sometimes wonder what my father would say, who died 21 years ago, what he would think of this new techno age. Same thing he always said probably, God Damn sons of bitches, you don't need to speak to someone that bad, unless your dead, than it doesn't matter anyway.
As you can see I have my fathers sunny disposition!
