five reasons cell phones should be banned

January 16, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

This message is brought to you by all of the time I spend in public places either for work or school.

1. Ringtones – I know you love Achy Breaky Heart. I’m glad (?) you love Achy Breaky Heart. I have no desire to hear how much you love Achy Breaky Heart every time your kids call to ask when you are coming home. No song has ever been written that is worth hearing the same 10 second clip all day every day.

2. Walkie Talkie feature – The only thing worse that hearing just one side of someone else’s conversation is hearing both sides.

3. The whole bluetooth thing. You do not look cool. You do not look important. You look like you are a) talking to yourself or b) being assimilated by the Borg. It is kind of fun to watch new users fumble with them though.

4. Texting – Beside destroying the English language, texting has made it possible and even socially acceptable to talk to someone else while you are being talked to face-to-face. And don’t get me started about people texting while driving. Or using any function on your phone while driving. I would rather move down the highway with a troop of drunk chimpanzees driving monster trucks (nice image, huh?) than be anywhere near a 16 year old girl driving with a cell phone.

5. Private conversations held loudly in public places. You wouldn’t believe the conversations I couldn’t avoid hearing. Actually, you probably would – you’ve heard them too. Or had them. Headphones – don’t leave home without them.

I feel like I should go out and sit on the porch and yell at kids about getting on my yard.
