People who are on their phone too much
 
Yesterday I went shopping with my mum, and a girl parked in front of us just as we pulled in, on her cell phone. She was on it the entire time we walked towards the store, and 10 minutes later she was in the same checkout lane as us, STILL on her cell. I don't know if she was polite enough to get off while the cashier rang her order, but wow!

Anyone else got stories to share?

it's actually illegal here in Pennsylvania to drive and talk at the same time, but it happens all the time - I can't tell you how many times I wished I were a cop to pull over some idiot who isn't driving properly!

Couple of days ago, a guy was talking on his phone, while pulling out of the parking space, backwards. Almost crashed into me...

I was in the bathroom once and I heard the guy in the stall next to me carry on a conversation with what appeared to be his broker...(like gross)...I mean there is a time and a place you know?...;)

What's really funny is that if you're actually close enough to hear what people are saying, sometimes they're talking about every single item they had for dinner the night before. For these yakkers, I suspect the person on the other end is as bored as I am!

Seriously, when I see someone on their cellphone while driving, I drive as far away I can. Just looking at them makes me want to crash. I don't even like listening in to people's conversations either. Just shut up! I don't want to hear it.

I always get irritated when people cant stop their phone conversation to exist in the real world.

I love the bathroom one... can youimagine what the other guy is hearing?

eek!

lol, I wouldn't like to imagine it.

My friend is forever on his SideKick 2. He never makes a call, but he's always flipping his SideKick or scrolling up or down. He'll never let it go.

I hate people who talk through the grocery store...how annoying is that. That is the only time I like to use for quiet time...arg....

Michael311 26-04-2006 11:44 PM

Bathroom... how can that be explained, hmm...?. I know! The price just plummeted, the guys got so nervous that he got a diarrhea, and he is calling to sell everything... hahahaha......

I hate it when I'm alone in the car with someone and they start talking on their cell phone for about 10 or 15 minutes. It's so terribly awkward!

I have story about this! I used to work at Wal-Mart at the food bar, and a guy in a suit is standing in line, talking on his cell phone. When it's his turn, he holds up his hand, tells me to wait and minute and continues his conversation with 3 other people waiting behind him!

Honestly. If you're standing in line to order, tell the person you'll call them back and hung up! Or step out of line or go to the end until you've finished your conversation. C'mon people! Manners. Remember them? Ms. Manners needs to add a chapter on cell phone curteousy.

I commute to places on the bus everyday. And what i hate the most is those who talk for the entire ride. Not only do they talk they are LOUD! One guy flipped off the bus driver because he told him to get off the phone or get off at the next stop. If your going to talk on busses be courteous to others and talk in whispers and hushed tones.

Speaking of grocery stores, I 've seen people in mine who seem to be talking to their husband about the grocery list the entire time. One woman stood in front of the meat counter telling him what was available until they decided what was for dinner!

ZZZZZZZZZZZZ
