Mrs. Monologues here hijacking Meg's blog today for the:
Cell Phones in Public Places Faux Pas
a.k.a. If you do any of these things I will give you the stink eye
1. Talks Way Too Loud Person
Seriously, you know what is awesome about cell phones? Is that it is RIGHT next to your face, which means people can hear you when you speak at a normal tone. Just because you get on your phone does not mean you need to yell in to the phone. That is why we have volume buttons on the phones y'all. Inside voices, that is all I am saying.
2. The Loud Annoying Ringtone Person
Let's be clear here, no one wants to hear your baby got back ringtone (okay, well on occassion we do), I don't want to hear your rinngg rinnng rinnng answer the phone talky ringtones that you only think are funny.
3. The Person Who Calls You And Then Tells You To Hang On
This one drives my up a wall when I get a call and say hello and the other end I get "hi, hang on" and then I have to wait for the person to finish whatever conversation they were having and then they start talking to me. Especially if I don't know the person, this just sets me up to not like you. Be considerate of others. Is that too much to ask!?
4. The Blue Tooth Talker
Oops, I actually commit this faux pas every time I grocery shop, but it still bugs me when I am not doing it, because you always think that the person is talking to you, but nope they aren't. Then you feel like the dummy when replying. In my defense though, my headset is an actual headset (like the iPhone ones), so it is not as hidden like some peoples. But in all seriousness it is kind of funny to see all these people walking around looking like they are talking to themselves.
5. The Talking On The Phone While Going Tinkle Person
So gross on so many levels. Remind me never to borrow your phone to make a quick call. Yuck. This is just nasty people. Get off the phone or wait until you are finished to make a call. Please make it known that if you ever call me while on the pot I will kick you in the shins next time I see you. Don't say I didn't warn you.
6. The Talking While Checking Out At A Store Person
Give the checkout person some respect. It is just inconsiderate yo! It takes longer to checkout, especially when grocery shopping because you are more focused on the call then checking out in a timely manner. My time is important too.
