    Today's stupid cell phone trick

    What is it about chicks and their cells? I swear I see twenty of them first thing each morning as soon as they pull out of their drive way they crank up the cell. Must be it reminds them of a phallus.

    Today's stupid cell phone trick: The lady pulls out of her driveway without scraping the frost off her driver's side window, pulls up to a stop sign while yapping on her cell and can't see the oncoming traffic because she's yapping away and looking out a frosted window. Pulls into traffic anyway. Idiot.

    If you have observed a stupid cell phone trick, please share. Thanks.

    yes this is why you buy a bluetooth headset. I love mine and makes driving and talking on the phone easy.

    I kinda don't think she would have cleaned her windshield even with a headset...

    but please, don't be "blue tooth guy" walking in gorcery stores or at the gym with a earpiece in.

    you are not cool & unless your title starts with "Dr" or you put out fires - you don't need it.

    Thanks for the qualification. With my busy schedule, I am often forced to multi-task while at the store or gym. I appreciate your understanding.

    It's idiots like her that should be smacked, otherwise this whole cell phone thing while driving ticks me off. Last night, me and the family were coming home from a church small group meeting and I get behind this idiot in an impala that has 100% of the back of his car plastered with bumper stickers. 2 of them I read were "Guns don't kill people, people using cell phones while driving do!" and another one said "Your driving a car, not a phone booth". I asked my wife for her cell phone so I could drive by the Dumb*** on the phone. It is more likely somebody will get in an accident trying to read the idiots bumper stickers then while talking on the cell phone. Some people can do more then two things at once....

    The lady in your story obviously is an exception to that rule though.

    I usually only use it at home, and at my office. It is handy to have my hands free while I talk on the phone. And of course it is always on in my car too.

    I am typing this message while driving to work and cyphering the daily Sudoku. Once I'm on the freeway, I hope to have a shave.

    Re: Today's stupid cell phone trick

    There's a lot of pent up road-rage in this thread ... yikes.

    KJ, just so you're not the one that says "oh hi, how you doing?" to the unsuspecting stranger who begins to answer back all bewildered - then realizes you're on your earpiece. I've been the confused guy, still have the pent-up blue-tooth-rage

    who am I kidding ... I'm not much of a "rage" type of guy, but still people - focus.

    Re: Today's stupid cell phone trick

    The best one I have seen is driving down the highway with (maybe) one hand on the steering wheel, the cell phone tucked betwen their shoulder and their cheek while talking, and the other hand with a lit cigarette out the window. Occasional puffs from the cigarette and seeing them reach down with the driving hand to get a drink.

    the horror...oh the horror

    The Bluetooth Headset - separating the 'business professional' from the homeless guy since 2002.

    Why is it "bluetooth headset guy" thinks it's okay to start up a phone call from the airport restroom?

    You know, I reread my post after reading your quote above. Seriously, I did not mean to sound as ticked as my typing suggests above.

    Re: Today's stupid cell phone trick

    Speaking of cell phone use while on the can. This is about to get a bit ugly, but I was in an airport and dude was in his stall squeezing one off while talking to his wife/GF back home on the cell. The conversation went something like his, "Honey, I love, uggh ah, you. Ahh ugh I'll see you ohh in a few hours, ahhh."
