I have come to the conclusion that everyone’s rude with their cell phone, except me of course. They can’t all possibly be dealing with life-or-death emergencies in the produce section of Publix or while in the bathroom of Panera. While waiting for my INR yesterday a lady beside me cellphone went off 4 times, not in the lobby mind you, but back in the lab and the sign clearly says turn off all cellphone and electronic devices. What did we do before unlimited data and texts? How did we survive without updating our twitter page with our location from the soup aisle? How did we make it thru the day without 87 texts of humorous antidotes or “it must be true it was on Facebook”. Did you hear, if Trumps elected deer hunting season will be a paid holiday? How did we survive with rotary phones, calling your mother collect as “made-it” so she would deny the charge but know you were back home safe?
How hard would it be for you to leave your cellphone in the visor when you went into the grocery store or met a friend for lunch? I was eating lunch at the Silver Skillet and in the booth beside me two boys never looked up from their phones while eating with their mother. Dosen’t your cellphone not have voicemail? I think it does since you check it every 5 minutes. Modern technology to some extent has taken away a very important element! Face to Face Conversation! (and no Face Time does not count!)
