Phone Irritation

Am I the only one that sees the cell phone as an electronic leash? I love the convenience of being able to call someone as I think of it, but I hate that everyone else expects others to be available every time they call. I hate that so many people use it while driving. I especially hate that everyone that does phone and drive thinks that they are so much better than the rest of the population at doing so that they shouldn't need to avoid doing so.

And to all those currently out there on the phone, can't you see the rain? Maybe if you weren't on the phone, you might notice that you forgot to put your lights on and that is why everyone else is acting like they can't see you.

Nothing is so important to put your lives and the lives of others at risk that can't wait until you stop. If it is more important than driving, stop to talk.

  1. I am completely with you on this one! We only have a Go phone which I hardly ever use and people get all irratated when they try to call my cell and it's not turned on. Then they look at me like I'm a freak when I say I only use it for emergencies. I think it's funny that people expect you to have the electronic leash now!
