This is something that has been on my mind for a while. The use of cellphones, in our modern world. Now don't get me wrong there a great invention. Allowing for you to keep in touch anywhere, with everyone. Like all things however to much use or misuse is a bad thing. First on my list about the device is texting. Its cool to do every now and then, but there's just people who take it to far. I saw on tv theres a girl that sends a phone book worth of texts a month. She doesn't even talk to her friends in real life she just texts them. If that girl was my friend I would toss her phone off a bridge.
Now in my own life, I have experienced something similar. Sometimes when having conversations with my friends, they'll pause the conversation to answer a text. Now to me that's like a smack in the face, showing that the person who's isn't there takes priority over a person, who your having a conversation with in real life.
Now some people try to help the situation by saying who there texting, but then you get those people who are so secretive. Even if you walk behind them they'll cover the screen up. Like I give a shit what there talking about, to a person who if you picked up the phone, could say the same amount of information to in 10 minutes.
Then theres the Blootooth Head sets. I don't know if its just me, but have you ever been in a store and someone starts talking. You think there asking you stuff, like they'll say, "oh what a load of crap." I'll turn around and be like excuse me. Then they'll say, "I just don't care about you." I answer with a few choice words. Then they turn sideways, and I realize its just a jack ass with a head set on in the store talking to his wife or something.
Then you get those guys in the restaurant who eat with there head sets on. In there mind they probably think they look bad ass, but in real life there just a wanna be important business man. If they were really important they wouldn't be eating at a crappy six dollar China Buffet.
Last but not least, you just have the people who answer there phones rudely in restaurant's or waiting rooms. Like I wanna hear about your mothers surgery while I'm trying to enjoy some delicious soup of the day. Have you notices to, that all these kind of people HAVE EXTREMELY LOUD VOICES. It feels as if there sitting on my head and yelling into my ear, there whole conversation.
I think congress should pass a law on obnoxious use of cell phones, punishable by death. Well maybe death is over doing it, but a swift kick to the pants would do good also. If there second offenders, then there phone goes in the microwave for a few minutes. Third offenders you don't even want to know your punishment.
