People talking on cell phones while they are driving. People talking on cell phones while they are in the line at McDonalds. People talking on cell phones in the stall next to you when you're using the bathroom at Wal-Mart. People talking on the cell phone while they are in the library. Hearing someone's cell phone ring while you're in CHURCH!


Yeah. The world is a vast phone booth. I even hate most of the ring tones, nowadays. You can add -- "People whose phones go off in class and they answer them, right then and there."

It's odd -- but the "enhanced connection" people supposedly get when they are available for phone messages 24/7 just isolates them even more -- from the people standing (or walking or driving) right in front of them.

Let your students know the FIRST day of class, that answering a call in class is an automatic failure. I can understand forgetting to turn it off smoetimes, but to answer the call in class is unforgivable. I fully understand why restaraunts and theaters are putting in these little jamming devices!

As for ring tones, I have "Sweet Home Alabama"! wink.gif

Mine is the Pink Panther!
I totally aggree about cell phones. I can't stand when I have a customer walk into my shop talking on their phone and never even aknowledge me. I have had them spend the entire time in the store on their phone...even when they are checking out. How Rude.disgust.gif censored.gif
I also can't stand when people feel that their cell phone call is more important than face to face conversation with me. I sure hope I don't come across that way to other people!!!
There is my rant for the day, Thank you!

Do these people NEED to be linked by this umbilical? Will they DIE if they can't talk to someone RIGHT NOW? I don't turn mine on half the time unless I need to call the lumber yard for wood for the job or to tell my wife I'll be late ('cause I'm having a beer with the guys wink.gif ) If someone needs to get a hold of me... leave a message, I'll call you back when I get home (After my beer!).

When I used to work in a department store, I disliked the people that insisted on having a conversation on their phones when I was trying to ring up theri purchases, and collect their money.......sometimes, I had to ask them a few times to pay...while there are other customersin my line.....really RUDE!!! furious.gif fyou.gif
Another thing...the really loud clicks when people ring on their NEXTEL phones...it drives me nuts!!!

Ok, I'm done!!!

This one may not apply to those of you who live in cities, I don't know, perhaps it's unique to rural America.
People who block the ailsles at the grocery store so they can visit with friends.

How about when you go to the drive through and not only does the speaker thing make it hard to understand the person taking your order, but they also don't speak very good English so when they read your order back to you it sound like mush with an accent. You never know what you're going to get in the bag. That is pretty annoying!!

1. I don't own a cell phone. Hope I never own a cell phone. I don't want to be that connected.

2. Shopping carts blocking the aisles aren't so bad, it's the cars blocking the roads while the drivers chat that gets me. (VERY rural America)

3. Don't go to the drive thrus for that reason. I park my car and go inside. I like to talk face to face.

Ok here are a few:

1. Girls that wear low cut shirts with shiny or sparkly letters right across their chest that get mad when you stare at their chest. If that's what you're advertising, people aren't going to look at your face.

2. When you are driving and someone almost hits you and you look and see they are talking on a cell phone.

3. People that sit in the passing lane going the speed limit while other cars are going faster than they are on the right.

4. When you go through the drive through, get home, and they messed up your order. No matter how ticked off you are, it's never really worth it to go back.

5. People who let their dogs run around off leash and then glare at you when THEIR dog runs up to play with YOUR dogs, who are leashed, and THEIR dog won't listen to them. It isn't MY fault they can't control their stupid dogs.

6. When you've rented a movie and have to return it because it's late and you haven't even watched it.

7. Call in Support Lines in general. Why is it when they want your business they are more than willing to bend over backward for you, but once they have your business they don't seem like they care about keeping it?

8. On the flip side, working in customer service and being yelled at by idiot customers who caused their own problem and yet want to blame me for it. The customer is NOT always right, and is usually wrong.

9. Dogs that, when fully grown, cn fit in the palm of your hand. They sit in girls' purses shaking out of either cold because they have zero body weight to keep them warm or the realization that the only natural protection they have is to pee on themselves and hope that makes them unappetizing.

One of my bits of advice to people when they come to see me about getting a dog is this "Never own a dog you can't pick up!" If you have to move the dog after it gets hit on the road or have to pull it out of ANY sort of situation, you better be able to handle the dog. I'm a big guy, but 50-70 lbs of limp dog is quite an arm load. So I guess some of these twits are better off with"keychain" dogs! Besides, most of them are as neurotic as their dogs, they deserve each other!

When I walk into a shop to browse and am pounced upon by store assistants wanting to know if they can help me - if I want help I'll ask for it!

What about the wingnut that isn't paying attention at the stop light and sits for most of it so you don't get through? Isn't that grounds for justifiable homicide? dry.gif

My wife and kids all have cell phones. I refuse to get one untill I can ownload an entire movie off of a DVD onto the phone cuz that would be my only use for it. We had one girl at work who actually had the earpiece and was talking for a vast majority of the day while she did her work. They finally banned them from our workplace except for break times. My wife has the Irish Washwoman and Scotland the Brave for her ringtones. Kids have got whatever is popular at the moment. Such individuality!!
