You may think your slick. Not so fast, there captain.

1. You look like an idiot. And that's being charitable.

In reality, you look like a Trekkie, trying to impersonate a Borg. Us "earthlings" are more inclined to shoot you on sight and save the planet from you than be impressed with your tech saavy.

2. Wearing a cell phone is not a status symbol. At least not a good one.

The ONLY people who need to be THAT "connected" are drug addicts and drug dealers. Which are you?

3. When we go against our better judgment and do actually talk to you, and you tell us "Hold on, I gotta take this call..." we're having Star Trek flashbacks to when the Borg mother ship gets annihilated.

4. You aren't really that important.

We know you lead a pathetic life, and that you are trying to impress us with your pseudo importance. How do we know this? We hear your "vital" conversations. Usually they go "Hello...I'm at the convenience store buying beer...... What are you doing?.........Nah, I'm not going , just gonna hang out at my dumpy apartment and watch Oprah....yer not going either? OK, later."


DO you REALLY need a frikken cell phone bolted to your head for that????

Lots more could be said, but why bother? You won't listen....you have a "vital" phone call to take.

That is how God contacts me from the Mothership. I don't want to miss His call, so I wear it religiously.

Oh yeah, it makes it safer to talk and drive too.

For the longest time, I had no idea what those damn things were. Some sort of IPOD thingy was my best guess.

The look uncomfortable as heck to wear.

I'm dreading getting a new phone whenever my old Sanyo craters. All I want the damn thing to do is send and receive calls. I don't believe they are made anymore without a video camera and cappichino machine

I only wish the existing headsets were smaller, and had the little boom mike like the astronauts used to have.

Some are too large to keep in your pocket, especially the PDA/phones like Blackberry's.

cell phones suck- you cant drive as good with one on your ear. fact

Saw a lady at the parking garage with a rag wraped around her head and the cell wedged up in there - she was talking on the phone while collecitng parking money

Walk around in New York City. I'm not "anti-handsfree" or anything, but it's really obnoxious how cell phones are always attached to someone's head here. What annoys me are those people who hold a phone to their head while they walk and don't talk. As far as I can tell, they do it only to avoid interacting with anyone else on the street.

I do that at work, but it's because I have to wear dress pants and like having the room in my pocket. When I'm not at work it goes in my pocket and my pistol goes on my hip
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 10:52:15 AM EDT
wow, you need to settle down.

Getting very UPTIGHT for something that does not even concern you or even affect you.

They do in fact make it easier to take calls while your hands are busy (driving, writing, working, insert choice here)

Yeah it might like stupid, but wearing your ballcap backwards or men wearing jewelry or even females going to college and in the workplace..you know...things change, for the better.


Deal with it, get some meds, or put yourself out of misery.

+1

If you take it out of your pocket and stick it on your ear while making or receiving a call, that's fine. Same with having it on or ready in the car or office, but wearing it like a fashion accessory at the mall or in a retaurant is GAY.

Oh, and people who are wearing them and switch back and forth between conversations on the phone and with you, sometimes within the same paragraph really suck. They'll ask a question, then when you don't respond ask it again obnoxously while giving you a pissed off look, when you have no idea if they are still talking to the person on the phone or directly to you. We should be legally allowed to immediately hit them in the face with the largest object within reach. But no, they are a customer or a client and you have to be nice and put up that that bullshit.

I think the funniest thing about the In-ear Cell Phones is that it takes a moment for someone to realize the person isn't having a conversation with themself but that they're on the phone with someone. Most people doing that look like complete idiots.

Some of these replies are a little overly defensive....if you're driving using one yea ok, if you're on the phone all day I can see that too - I think he means people like I have seen - obviously lower socio-economic types desperately trying to appear important, jabbering while they're in the check-out line about 'who sed dat' or whatever, it's rude, which has come to be normal.
I think it's funny in a kind of tragic way

While driving is a GOOD idea.

In the convenience store (as I posted illustratively) NO WAY.

Maybe they are undercover mall ninjas. You know they have to stay in constant communication in case there's a robbery in the food court. The next time you see one, notice if he's wearing special boots.

What I find more amazing is the huge number of people now who seem to simply have to be able to call a friend and spout off to someone all the time. It's not a matter of business at all, it's mostly younger people and it's mostly females. The concept that anything that falls out of one's noggin is worthy of making someone else listen to just doesn't bode well for the virtues of future generations.

That's real smart....NOT.

Atleast up by your head you have a certain amount of "skull-bone" to limit somewhat the EMF amd microwaves that your absorbing.

Down by your nuts don't be suprised in a few years, if you find yourself with the same problem cops had a few years back (those that rested their radar guns in their laps; which ended up with testicular cancer....... ouch).

Mike

ps - it is a proven fact that the soft tissue around one's waist or groin area allows the absorption of EMF and microwaves at a much more substantial and deeper rate..................
