On my way home after work last Friday there was a young woman texting while standing in the middle of the road! Not walking down the road, not crossing the road, just standing there! That was one time I really wished I had one of those train horns on my car!

In the grocery store, I have no problems reaching across someone (or moving their cart) if they're blocking my way. I do always say "excuse me," though!

Subeeds - my sentiments exactly! And I thought I was the only one who still refused to have a cell phone!

I think more people should carry around small tape recorders and then when someone is being over-the-top rude on their cell, just start openly recording them. Make sure they see you doing it. If (when) they object, smile and tell them you're not taping their phone call, you're just taping the things you hear in public.

I thought it was kinda annoying when the ticket lady at the Pittsburgh airport wouldn't help me cuz I was on my cell phone. She made me get out of line until I was done with my call.

I live in an area with TERRIBLE cell service and every minute of clarity is to be TREASURED!! Especially when making plans.

The wireless headsets fry your brain, but I think I'll get a wired headset - then I'll just be another airport traveler talking to themselves.

You need the 'Extra Heavy Duty' battery!

Are you guilty of talking or texting while driving?

Somebody go back over this thread and count how many women and how many men admit to being cell phone 'annoyers'. hahaaaa

I have a colleague who yells into the phone so loudly that I don't think they needs any bars to make a call. I just cringe when this person makes a call in a public place. Once I was in a smallish restaurant with my colleague who literally stopped conversation in the whole place with a phone call.

Everybody thinks they are an above average driver who can handle "it". It doesn't matter whether the "it" is alcohol, reading a map, eating, cell-phones, fighting with your spouse, putting on make-up, texting... the truth is you're not an above average driver if you're distracted or altered.

the seats reclined and everyone had their own lil lights, so mostly it was dim on the bus cause people took cat naps.

it was nice no stops, city to burb.

And now for the rebuttal...

princessrain11 is an NDN girl. NDN women are mean. Therefore...

JD is scurred to rebutt!!!

I'm jusss kiddin!

T9? qwerty? Those technology words are way beyond me! LOL

I see people (mostly women) texting while driving in stop and go traffic, holding up a long line of traffic cuz they're fighting with their bf/gf, texting at stop lights and when the light turns green they don't move. And don't forget the putting on makeup on their way to somewhere.

I use a bluetooth. If I don't have it with me, I'll either let any incoming calls go to VM or pull over and take the call. Yeah, I try to be a safe and courteous driver.

I live in a state where driving and talking is illegal. Doesn't seem to matter. In 3 out of 5 cars you pass, they're talking on the phone! Don't know about giving out tickets for doing illegal talking and driving. I've seen the cops driving and talking. How they gonna give out a ticket? LOL

Dang, I do goot rebutting!!!

Oh yeah, I'm learning how to text on my phone. If you wanna text me, here's my digits...
































999-NEVERMIND

it wasnt illegal for a lonng time here in az but then two teen gurls ahh.. wiped out soo flippen bad while txtin that it caught the attention of lawmakers who promptly changed that.

honestly i dont think it changed very much if anything. we wrk on high speed state roads and see the results everyday. out of ten vehicles a couple will be txtin or callin.. when we slow down trafffic or stop traffic the number goes to about 8 out of 10 cars who start eating and jump on their cellys. its alittle frustrating cause you can see them in this tunnel vision while we out workin. mostly we adjusted by extending wrk zones and adding more barriers and lights to control traffic.

i actually wont advocate or try and stop anybody from txtin. theres nothin i can do or say but if they were in my place and see what i see.. theres no way they would feel the same.

It's funny there are total strangers that will approach you and ask to use your cellphone. This has happened a couple times while walking downtown. I just pointed them to the nearest payphone.

I work at Subway and I hate it when I'm trying to make a sandwich for a customer when they are on their cell-phone. It's one thing if they are calling a friend or family member to see what they would like on their sandwich, but it's another when they're talking on the phone and they're saying stuff like "I'm not doing much. I'm at Subway now getting myself something to eat. Want to go to the movies later tonight" or something like that.

My oldest child is 8. Some of her friends have their own cell phones and call me so that my daughter can talk to them.

My youngest child is 3. I have caught her numerous times having a conversation while my phone was left unattended ....

I appologize if she called you.
