10 Things I hate about YOUR cell phone
Face it, we love OUR phones.
In fact, what we have is an all-out, perpetual grudge against other people's cell phones. What makes us hate them so much? I wandered around asking people this question and here is a list of the top ten cell phone behaviours that drive us up the wall:
2. Diners who text while eating out with us. -- Yes, we can see the light streaming from the screen, even when they hide their phones on their laps, just under their napkins.
3. Loud talkers who carry on long, tedious, one-sided conversations on their phones right behind us on crowded buses.
4. Shoppers who call home for help when making the simplest decisions. -- We've all seen them blocking the aisle at the grocery store, hand to ear, while they make their emergency call home to ask if they need more Hamburger Helper.
5. Fast food eaters who stand in front of us at McDonald's but when it's finally their turn are too busy talking on their phone to actually place their order.
6. Cell phone users who have all-out, no holds barred, emotional outbursts in public.-- Most likely,if they're a guy, they sit right behind us on the bus and scream things like, "That's not my fault, you @%$#@!!." Or if they're a woman, they stand in line at the bank and sob hysterically into their phone, "Why does this always happen to me?"
8. Distracted walkers who bump into us while they're walking because they're too busy texting to see what's right in front of them.
9. Phones that beep every thirty seconds with incoming texts until the cell phone user starts to sound like a defective carbon monoxide detector.
10. And worse of all... Bluetooth users who make it impossible to tell the crazy from the sane. -- Before when someone was carrying on a conversation with himself as he walked down Yonge Street, we thought, "Okay, this guy needs some room," and we moved aside. Now, we just assume the person is talking to someone through their Bluetooth device...but are they really?
Seriously, we'd never do any of those things with OUR phone. Right?
