Today’s hero

Bluetooth

You know that guy, right?

Yeah, that one. The one who’s always on his Bluetooth. The one who wears that blinky blue piece of plastic affixed to the side of his head 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We have one in our office. My ex-husband was one.

I hate them in the grocery store because I’m naturally outgoing and if I hear someone beside me, with no visible clue that they’re ON THE PHONE, say “What’s up?”, I”ll respond.

Sigh.

I found this on Fark.com today and loved it. It made me happy.

Get that thing out of your ear, willya?

It’s long, but I found it worth it. Because we all know THAT guy. I hate THAT guy.

    I don’t know how people where earpieces all day and night. I don’t even like to wear mine when I drive because it hurts after a short period of time. Not to mention, I think people who wear earpieces all the time look like idiots.

    Ha! “Pleasantly colored lasers of hate” — So true.

    I do feel hate! Giant hate! I mean, trust me, I don’t put the BlackBerry down, but even I have my limits.

    Ever had that guy sitting in front of you in a MOVIE having a whispered conversation about how rude someone was to him at a restaurant …
    Oh yes — it happened.

    Hate on, girlfriend — hate on!

    Just rest snug in the knowledge that they’re all going to have throbbing brain tumors in 10 years.

    I hate when you’re walking in a store and you see someone talking and you’re wondering to yourself are they talking to me or not. Then you realize they have one of those stupid pieces in their ear and you realize then they have a complex of “look at me, I have a big piece of technology in my ear. Ain’t I fashionable.”

    Let’s all give a slow clap to these people.

    By the way, where it’s worst is the airport. I saw so many people walking around at 6 a.m., with these things in their ear. Why? You can’t use your phone on the airport so why stick it in there.

    I see guys in meetings and in Church with them on. Are they going to answer a call in church?

    Great Post

    Cell phones in general demonstrate how uncivilized we really are… We’re still cavemen, we just wear better clothes…

    The next great cellphone innovation is — wait for it — built-in texting in your car, thanks to Microsoft Sync. I’ve never seen it in action but it seems guaranteed to cause the next wave of accidents…

    Brian,

    As a pastor-to-be, I understand that some people such as doctors need to be available to their clients on a 24-7 basis. But I wonder if someone has the thing in their ear are they fully active and participating in worshiping God? Then again, you could be there in full Sunday best and not be fully engaged in the worship.

    And thus ends my theological rant for the day.

    One of my co-workers wears an ear piece. Sometimes, she’ll walk around our office (our office is the size of a living room – we’re out in the community all the time), and she’ll be having a full conversation while others are doing work. She looks like she’s talking to herself. I think the main reason she has it is for the car, but it’s still kind of annoying sometimes.
