yet another pet peeve...

Bluetooths...I can't stand seeing them. It's my own personal opinion of course, put the growing number of people walking around with them in their ears are disturbing.

While out an public, people appear to be talking to you, but are holding private conversations in front of everyone. Here I was thinking I was walking around with many schizophrenias because they are talking to themselves. Not really...but ya know? Why does life have to be so rushed and busy nowadays that you can't take a moment out of your day for a normal phone conversation without having to multi-task shopping, driving, or even picking up your children while talking on the phone. You people look ridiculous with that bright pink thing hanging out of your ear too!

Seriously, I had a gentleman that I had to check in today for his appointment. Meaning, ask him personal questions, take his vitals,etc... He would not stop talking or end is conversation. Would not, then he got upset when I tried to ask him his medical screening questions like I was interrupting him! A-hole! Yes, A-hole, Ignorant a-s-s-h-o-l-e. Hang up your call before stepping in a line for service, ordering from a drive window, before you go into a movie, before picking up your child as school and before you go into your doctor's office. Thank you. Nothing but love from the Donut!

To further my annoyance, I feel the same with the "wireless" non blue-tooth ear pieces in public as well. Most people are still carrying their phones anyway. What's the purpose of hands free if you still hold your phone? It doesn't make you look anymore important...just my thought anyways.


So there, that's off my chest and mind. My rant on the current pet peeve...

LOL.. I agree. The other day I saw a family going into Staples, both mom and dad had their blue thingies hanging out of their ears. I was thinking, "Hello, it's Saturday! Enjoy your weekend!". ;)

It's like everyone has to be on call to everyone else *every* moment of every day. No wonder people are stressed!

Ha! I got a free blue tooth with my phone and it's stayed in the box. I don't think I would want it hanging off me. I've got enough hanging off me! ; )
