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...

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.

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 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!

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

People who are on their phone too much

Hello!

I would say that talking and texting over the phone are forms of communication. However, let us also remember that the personal and the live ones who are near to us also deserve our attention. What happense most of the time is that some people are so engrossed texting and talking with somebody on the phone and they have become inattentive and insensitive to the ones who are near them. Guess, phones, especially cellphones should only be for emergency purposes ...

I never minded Joe Schmoe who, upon walking into the store, realizes he's forgotten if he was supposed to get a 12 pack of the Diet Coke and a 12 pack of regular Pepsi, or if it was supposed to be a 12 pack of regular Coke and a 12 pack of Diet Pepsi. If he calls his wife and saves running home and back again, more power to him because, usually, he's the one that is on 2 minutes, hangs up and goes on about his business.

I mind my mother... We went into the grocery store and had lunch at their little deli one day. As soon as we were done eating, she's on the phone to her friend. And she's yelling. And she's on the phone with her friend, to tell her how bad the cruise she'd been on was. And how she'd never go on another Italian run line again!

And yet she has the hypocrisy of grumbling about the woman in the parking lot, putting her groceries away in the trunk, while she's talking on her phone. Ugh!
