Cell Phone Annoyance

Have you ever been annoyed by someone on their cell phone?

Recently there was an article on YAHOO that addressed this problem. They cited texting in meetings, ring tones going off in theaters, church and the work place, and of course people who persist on using their cell phones while driving.

Cell phone annoyance now takes place in the Indian world! I have seen a singer at the Gathering signalling his drum group to be quiet because he could not hear the person on his cell phone, I have heard "Baby's got back" ring tone at a traditional ceremony, and I have heard a person on her cell phone inside a port-o-potty with a long line of angry people waiting for her to finish her conversation!

Do you have similar stories?

Are you guilty of annoying others with your cell phone habits?

Some of this is just plain rude. Yeah I got some funky rigntones for certain people but in a professional, crowded or portapotty are, I silience my phone or forward all calls to my voicemail. Texting is something I do, but then again, only when I can not whenever I want.

Its not so bad when someone is walking around on their cell phones having a normal conversation that bothers me, but it gets annoying when they start talking about deep personal or bodily issues or they just start screaming and talking very loud.

People around where I live suck at driving to begin with (must be bleed over from Jersey) and their cell phones make it all the more painful.

Yesterday while driving to singing practice, I was waiting for a light. When the light changed to green, a few cars on the other side went through the intersection with one car holding up a long line behind. Annoyed, everyone started honking.

Right when the light turned yellow again, the one car that held everyone up - with a lady on her cell phone - was the only car that made it through the intersecton before the light turned red again.

I could see it on the faces of the people in their cars that they were cussing! I couldn't hear what they were saying. . . but I could imagine!

Ever see the car going 65 mph in the fast lane of a 6-lane freeway and when you get next to it, there's a woman all crouched low, talking like she's parked in her driveway? Or the woman who's driving during rush hour on said freeway doing stop-n-go texting?

See it every day.

I once saw a Sheriff in his car, parked in a handicapped space, talking on his cell phone. I approached the car, motioned for him to roll his window down and then asked him if there was any reason why he was parked in the handicap parking while on his phone. He looked at me angrily, and replied "Don't worry about it, buddy. I'll take care of it!" hahahaaa

If you can afford a car, you can afford a bluetooth earpiece!

What's really rude is a child of mine whom I raised, but for some reason has zero phone consideration. She always hangs up without saying goodbye. She'll send me a text, then calls right away to see if I got the text - interrupting my reply. And if I don't answer her calls due to lack of signal , she'll leave a message like, "Answer your damn phone!"

I didn't realize I was acting rude by texting in meetings - it's almost a job necessity for me. And I try to text as little as possible while driving.

I teach college students and the constant texting is one thing that annoys me. I don't think they even realize that they're doing it in class. They text while they walk, while they bike, while crossing the street, while skateboarding. Everywhere!

This one day I was in Wal-Mart. This lady was having a hushed conversation on her cell phone, and she just happened to be right in the middle of the aisle I needed to shop in. I couldn't get to the product I needed, and she kept looking over at me and giving me dirty looks as I waited for her to move. I think she thought I was listening in or something, and I'm like, I don't even know you and could care less about your conversation. I finally just left and came back a few minutes later.

If you're talking about something serious, confidential, uncomfortable, etc., shouldn't you be doing that somewhere more private?

I can safely say that I have never annoyed anybody with my cell phone-I don't have one-I don't want one. If somebody can't get in touch with me at home or work, I'm busy and don't need to be bothered with a phone call.

People who drive and talk or text really bug me-especially the ones who almost hit me while they are doing it.

My 3 year old has called me at work on her mother's phone. She did it just by pressing buttons on the phone. NO telling who else she has called. . .

I'll have to say, I'm getting better about saying - Excuse me - or - I gotta take this - when I answer an incoming call. But I'm not shy about hitting the Ignore button either.

My voicemail message is probably annoying, and I haven't changed it in years. sorry

And I almost always remember to silence my phone in meetings and theaters. Restaurants? Not always...depending.

I'm always forgetting my phone in the car overnight...which is annoying to ME.
