Personally, I don't have a cell phone. People look at me oddly when I tell them that. 8 year olds have cells, why would a person like myself not have one?
Well, to tell you the truth I don't like being found. My work is the kind of place that if you have a cell phone, it means they can call you anytime they want. If I want to talk to them, I'll pick up my house line. If I'm not at home, I probably don't want to be interrupted. This is true of both my workplace and my friends.
But that's not to say I don't appreciate their usefulness. They are damn helpful. Occasionally, there have been moments where I really wished I had one.
However, I become very annoyed at the people with cell phones. This happens often enough that I can't stand the device itself, even though it's just the person that's mentally handicapped. I mean, in a given conversation, do you really need to check your voice mail three times? Kinda tells me that you don’t give a fuck about our conversation and would rather be off somewhere else.
And while polyphonic ring tones are cool, I really don't need to hear your craptastic ring tone every time you leave it behind on your desk. And besides, who the fuck wants to hear the jaws theme or some annoying ass pop song every fucking time their phone goes off? Don't get me started on the high pitched screeching ones.
Is cell phone courtesy that difficult? When at work, cell phone to vibrate. When you get a voice mail or an IM, it can probably wait 5 minutes until we’re done talking.
But if you really must be Annoying Cell Phone Guy™... beware. Next time may be the time I snap and shove your cell phone up your ass
