of course, for many people, it's not the bluetooth headset.

When you're in the car, you're invisible. Thus the nose-picking.

It's those Motorola stick-headsets and the cheap ripoffs of them with all of the blinky lights that get to me.

A subtle in-ear Jabra is hardly a distraction at all.

For gods sake, you're at Olive Garden on a Sunday night. You really can't take the earpiece off for a half an hour?

Those are the people that bug me.

So, were these folks from the future, then?

I don't care what others think, I wear my headset when I need to use it. Sometimes it's at the supermarket, sometimes not.

I don't wear one at home during dinner, nor would I wear one when dining out. But the supermarket is just the supermarket.

I'm not sure why anybody should care that other's think they look like an idiot.

Sidetone appears to be making a comeback in some phones (LG 8300, for one) so there may be hope for headsets. This means that though wearing BT headsets may distress some, at least the wearers won't be talking as loud.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I was addressing those who don't need to use it. I'd also prefer not listening to those who do have hands and arms having phone conversations in public.

...and so I says to Mable, I says Mable, when are you gonna get that pedicure? Your feet looked kinda rough last time I saw 'em. Then Mable says to me, she says, Vision, bump that, where are you at? So I says to Mable, you know I'm at the Safeway in The Mission. Standing in line. People lookin' at me crazy for some reason. Mean muggin' me like I just stole their money. Mable says back to me, don't even try to sweat that. I says to her, Girl, I'm talkin' into my new headset, it's fly. Makes me look like Star Trek. They jus jealous...

Would you rather some of these guys shopping go home and listen to:
"You bought unsalted saltines? What the f$@# were you thinking? "
"ham, you idiot, not spam!"
"sliced german balogna in the RED package, not the BLue package"

These phones are saving marriages.
And helping to keep the neighborhood sound levels down.

They just need built in voice recorders now.

Funniest one I saw was a guy using the camera on the phone to save his a$$.

It's nerd chic for the 21st century but the people wearing them aren't nearly as smart as the geeky kids back in 4th grade with the white tape around their glasses. And, yes, they look like idiots.

Excuse me sir, but you seem to have an earwig about to enter your left ear and yes it will eventually emerge from your right ear apparently causing no harm. Oh we forgot to mention they usually lay eggs in the center. Have a nice day.
