You know how there are things that just kind of drive you crazy for no real reason outside of they drive you crazy?
I'm standing in line at the super big box store (buying a Bissell steam cleaner for my carpet, long story) and for the umpteenth time I see someone in line ahead of me, apparently a young mom, with one of those stupid phone things stuck in her ear. And it occurs to me, not for the first time, just how darn stupid that looks. For the life of me, everytime I see someone with one of those phone things clipped around their ear I think they're a refugee from a really bad Star Trek episode. It looks, well, stupid.
And really, just how many of us really, really need to be so attached to our telephone that we have to walk around with some goofy little metal contraption hanging off our ear? Are there really that many people out there that these people have to talk to that they have to hang a phone off their ear just so they won't miss a single phone call? Not to mention the fact that when they're talking, they look like they're missing a couple of sandwiches out of the picnic basket.
I don't know about you, but even though I do carry my phone with me (I'm paranoid about vehicle breakdowns) I actually enjoy the fact that I can get away from people simply by turning it off (which I've been known to do). I like my solitude at times, and I certainly don't want to be tied to a telephone.
And goodness knows, I have enough bad hair days without having to hang a stupid metal gadget from my head....
