Get that Phone Outa My Face

This is a rant.... Sorry in advance.

Since my recent trip to Europe and my lack of cell phone usage because I was in a foreign country it made me think about technology etiquette. Here I walk through the mall or even drive my car and everyone is pecking away, scrolling through their blackberry answering emails or chatting on their phone. Just because you can be connected to the outside world at all times does not mean that you should be. It really pisses me off.

Things that drive me crazy:
1. When you are with me somewhere, like a bar and we are in a conversation and then you start typing away... are you really that busy that you need to have two conversations at once. Couldn’t you wait to talk to the person on the other end of those text messages until I am done with my sentence?
2. Posting pictures of me on Facebook that make me look like a creature from another planet... ie, I am chewing my food, I am in the middle of talking, yea that is a photo of my butt thank you. I really don’t think that I want those photos of me drunk to show up when my mother is looking at my most recent photos.
3. Sending me a message that says ‘HI’ ................................................................................................................................................ SERIOUSLY WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THAT!!!!!!
4. Using your phone during dinner, I can’t even joke about it. It is the RUDEST thing ever.
5. Talking on the phone loudly in a quiet space. Really, can’t you just excuse yourself, no one cares what you think about the Bachelorette show last night and what a hussy Jezabelle is.

I heard a saying once that you should only use your phone in places where it would be appropriate to read a book. Think about it people of the USA!!!
