Those of you who know how I loathe cell-phone-rudeness will understand my growl.

I was just at the store picking up a bottle of wine to go with dinner. The man in front of me was on one of those walkie-talkie thingies, as he'd been the entire time he was making his selection. I know this because I heard him, and his co-conversant, loud and clear and complete with those annoying little beeps. But you know what made this absolutely brilliant? The checkout guy was also on his cell phone.

THEN I went to the drugstore and grocery store. As I went to turn, someone (who had been sitting there the entire time I was approaching!) pulled out just as I got close. Big surprise, they were also on a cell phone. Something very like happened as I was coming home from the doctor's office yesterday.

So.. starting immediately, you are not allowed to be a stupid driver AND be on your phone while driving. You must choose one or the other. Thank you kindly.
I feel: angrysnarly
I hear: the gnashing of my teeth

but Kelly, you and me might be the only NON stupid drivers left...that's what it feels like anyway. :P
And I have this little magical invention called a HANDS FREE DEVICE...little known secret that every cell phone comes with one pretty much...Why do I never see people utilizing those???

To be fair, I did see one guy today with a hands free device. He was putting it on as he was driving. sheesh.

It's illegal in NH to drive and use a cell phone.

Unfortunately, it's only illegal if you're caught, and everyone still does it, but... there is hope! And I feel your pain!
