My Odd Observation....

I have an observation to comment about. I really hope not to offend anyone...Ha! now I'm concerned about offending? Now that's funny! Anyhoo...let's get real here. What's up with the hands-free, bluetooth headset thingys that people wear around as if they are waiting for their kidney donor to call?? (Ok, if you are waiting for your kidney, please, my apologies...this doesn't apply to you!). I mean, what is so dog-gone important that you can't run into the grocery store to pick up a few things without the fear of missing that life-altering "hey, waz up?" phone call? I don't have my mailbox strapped to my waist when I'm eagerly awaiting for that special birthday card to arrive from my Aunt. And whatever happened to the traditional phone-in-pocket way of life? Have you not discovered the "vibrate" mode? And don't you have to have your phone with you even if you are wearing your new extended "ear" anyway??? And do you not care that when you do get a call from that urgently important caller from say....your brother or your next door neighbor to tell you that bowling night has been changed to Tuesday, that the person next to you in Wal-Mart will think you are completely insane because you are talking to yourself....because they happen to be on the side where the ear-phone isn't? These are the little things that just get under my skin people.





Just something to ponder........

Love it! That is something that hasn't really caught on here. I think because so many men here are so hot headed if one started saying something mean on his phone, and the guy next to him thought he said something bad about him, he wouldn't look to see if he was on his phone first and just deck him!! Probably holding a phone to your ear is safer here!

Seriously! I totally agree! Especially folks who are at lunch with someone & still have the darn thing on. How does that make their dining companion feel?

I have spent 3 hours trying to reply to this and now I can't remember what I was going to say. Am I on now?

Lori-

Omgoodness, I spit out my diet coke on this one. You had me rolling!!!!!!!!!!!

That is so true.. I have thought the same thing in the grocery store! And a couple of times, I might have embarassed myself by talking back to them cause I didn't see the ear thingy... good times!

Funny funny stuff!

Are you ready for this... I actually had one of those things. (please, still keep me as one of your friends!) I used it twice and felt completely ridiculous! I look at people that have them on and they are talking so loud and it seems like they are talking to nobody... I have also answered them back! It is embarrassing!

You will be glad to know mine is gone- lost somewhere with Lucy's glasses and my waist!

Blessings,
Jean's twin sister from Hawaii! ;-)
