Mr. Coffee Nerves: And to think there are people who actually want cell phone usage to be approved on airplanes.


I just want to play solitaire from one coast to the other.

Why?

Better than making a withdrawal, I guess.

Talking on cellphones and BT devices isn't the problem. It's the people who don't realize that they are distance communication devices and feel the need to scream. You don't need to yell into your cellphone or headset, that's really all that matters.

As for the "Everyone who uses a cellphone in public is an asshole" people, I don't believe that those people have never used their cellphone in public, so they can eat a dick.

sedric: CruJones: No, talking loudly on your phone makes you an asshole, simply using it is fine.  If you talk at a normal volume it's no worse than someone talking to a friend.

this. if you are discreet no problem.. if i have no choice but to hear every word that puts me in a choking mood.


I have no problem with people who are talking at the volume they would if they were having a one on one conversation with someone sitting with them. Despite the FarkRage, most people do this. There are always going to be exceptions, though. Got to listen to one chick on the train the other day yell at her baby daddy, then yell to someone else how she had to stop at one stop to see the baby daddy, then would get back on the train and met her, then she yelled at her baby daddy again, then got on the phone with another friend or family member to complain about the baby daddy, then the baby daddy again. This was all after I moved to the other end of the train car since she had a stroller... Those are the people who are the problem.

Not real fond of being in an elevator with someone using their phone.  Thanks for letting me share your phone booth, twit.


I pretend elevators scare me or I'm claustrophobic and the only way to calm myself down...is to SING.

Sybarite: 62 people (30 men, 32 women) were confronted with a confederate wearing a large leg brace, who dropped a stack of magazines and feigned difficulty retrieving them.

Rudeness is not progress.  Being rude to others while using your new cool toy is simply being an asshole.  Let's separate behavior from technology, ok?


Your comment makes no sense. The people in this thread who are having trouble separating the behavior from the technology are the Luddites who think that just because a cell phone is involved, normal behavior becomes rude.

Yelling into your phone is rude because yelling in public is rude. Ignoring someone you're supposed to be interacting with in favor of someone you're in the phone with is rude not because of the phone, but because you're ignoring someone.

This weird thing where the exact same behavior is somehow unacceptable because of the technology is what vharshyde was talking about.

lewismarktwo: I was in a fairly posh hotel retrieving a package from services when some asshole starts yelling and cursing incessantly into his phone to some bank or credit card rep about needing access to his money.  He decided to pony up to the front desk for this as to disturb everyone in the lobby.  The employees were all red faced and glancing down at their shoes, clearly unable to tell the customer he was not right.

After I signed for my package I tapped him on the shoulder and asked him to take his conversation to the bathroom not 20 feet away for the benefit of the other guests and employees.  He was outraged of course and told me to mind my own farking business.  I then proceeded to whip my cell phone out and began to mock him in a similarly loud fashion, right into his ear.  "Hey look at me! I'm so farking important I think everyone needs to hear one half of this customer service call in the lobby of this 5 star hotel!  I may be yelling at you but I'm really just angry about my small penis! My mother never loved me! " etc.

He told the bank rep some asshole was making too much noise to talk and that he would call him right back and flees.  Smiles on all the hotel employees faces, and I got a free gift basket complete with intoxicants later that day.

I've been known to talk to people who are wandering aimlessly while chatting on a phone in the crowded grocery aisles.

"Excuse me, you're blocking the aisle, people need to get by."  "Pardon me, I need to get that product that you're camping in front of."

Seriously, I hate shopping, I want to buy what I want and leave, I don't want to have to dodge zombies.  I'm perfectly polite and patient to old people doddering along slowly, but I have no empathy for selfish clowns on cell phones.

Diogenes: "Why don't you mind your own business?!"

"Why don't you stop making your business everyone else's?!"


1000x times, this!  I was at a Verizon store (big, open, endless waiting) and some woman was reading some poor shlub the riot act on her phone, talking about how he ruined her life, ruined their kids lives, etc at high volume.  So I merely started staring at her since it was obvious she wanted everyone to hear her conversation.  After a bit she noticed, got real quiet and then took it outside.

Seriously, I don't want to know your business.  Talk on your phone in the same tone and volume as you would talk to the person standing next to you.

Another good trick if they won't make eye contact with you, is to start talking right next to that person in the same volume as them.  Eventually they will get annoyed (go figure) and either quiet down or move away.

I had one a few years ago (ordered it from England) and it worked great! Had an effective radius of about 50-feet or so. It was fairly expensive so after a few weeks I wound up returning it.  It was a fairly simple looking device about the size and looks of a flip-phone (this was pre-smartphone days back when Blackberry was still popular). These days, though, what with 3G, 4G, etc., I'm not sure if there are any small jammers that are able to block everything.

This is one of those things I truly don't give a shiat about, and it makes me feel like an alien who landed on Earth to see people get so worked up over it. If someone is on their cell phone near me, I use it as just one more way to gather information about them to judge them by. Then Iaugh to myself and move along.

There are a surprising number of people you just have a normal conversations at insane volume levels as well.  I'm sure a small percentage have hearing problems, but others just seem like they're afraid of being ignored.

While in Wal-mart I've been 'treated' to a rather large and loud lady yammering away on the phone as she slowly wandered along the displays. Then I came across another one having an energetic and equally loud gossip session as she pushed her cart right down the middle of the rows.

I really hate standing in line somewhere to check out -- which I consider the worst part of shopping anyhow -- and someone behind me is jabbering away on a cell. It makes it extra annoying when they're loudly going on in some language like Spanish or, increasingly, some African dialect.

I watched an elderly black lady come into a store, grab one of the power scooters and drive off, cell phone glued to her ear, loudly discussing something in Swahili or whatever, not really paying attention to where she was going. A short time later I came across her again, still on the phone, looking pi$$ed and about 30 minutes later, bumped into her again and she was still at it!

Now, the local Wal-mart has found a way to cut down on the jabber by installing these self checkout booths. You can't jabber much on a cell when using both hands to empty your cart, scan each item and respond to the frequent automatic requests of 'Please Scan The Item' or 'Please Place The Item In the Bagging Area'.

Wal-mart, I read once, has cell jammers installed across the stores to cut down on this, but it doesn't seem to make a difference or else not every store has them.

Maybe Publix does, because I rarely see anyone there blabbing away on a cell and if they do, it's usually at a decibel level that can't be heard three aisles away.

I was rather impressed the other day, there was a gaggle of high school girls sitting next to me having the typical high school girls' giggle fest, and they were actually talking at a relatively normal volume, all the more impressive because they were in the seats that face the center aisle, meaning that they were talking across the train car.

Either that or putting it in their pocket leads to it getting broken or lost, or harder to fetch when they get a call. See, I have one that's easier to where when I'm walking to the train station, riding the train, then driving. Otherwise, I'm spending half the time that my phone is ringing away fumbling the BT out, turning it on, sticking it on my ear, and trying to answer before the person hangs up.

But yeah, they probably care what you think, so we should send out a memo.

I don't know if it makes people bigger assholes, but it certainly makes the roads more dangerous. In the last two years I've been rear ended three times and all three times those farkers were talking or texting on their cell phones. Personally I think they should be outlawed, and not just in cars, but totally and completely outlawed. Cell phones are just too dangerous.

CruJones: No, talking loudly on your phone makes you an asshole, simply using it is fine.  If you talk at a normal volume it's no worse than someone talking to a friend.


Or blocking people at the counter, in line, or whatnot while talking.

For the most part I think it can be summed up with one question: If the person you are talking to was next to you, would you still be an asshole?

If yes; you're an asshole.

If no; the whiners are the assholes.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pD254JDQAJU&t=0m25s

Back to TFA,  If I have a cell phone conversation, ending it abruptly means I'm being rude to that person, (and chances are good THEY called ME).  Walking on by from someone who appears to need assistance means I am also being rude, I have to make Sophie's Rudeness Choice.  This is not the case if I am not busy talking to someone.

Likewise, if I'm on the clock, or going to be late to something, I'm less likely to help someone out on the sidewalk because I am  busy and maybe risk getting fired for not keeping moving.

But most of the complaints I am seeing here are either far more than "just talking on a cell phone" or people who just hate people, and are assholes themselves.  Like some M. Night Shyamalan movie, you were the asshole all along.

I got on the elevator in my building recently, 1 woman already in there, talking on her cell. I glanced at her and she said "do you mind? this is a private conversation". I said "and this is a public space..." and then stared at her for 15 floors.......

Out of curiosity, why would you have a need to be on the phone while grocery shopping?  For that matter, when did phones become so absolutely necessary during all times of the day?  I mean, it's not like people carried bags of quarters to use on pay-phones back in the day.

To check with the wife about what I need to get for dinner.  Or she called to ask me to get something she forgot to tell me before.


The grocery store is why text messages were invented.

"Man this one time a bunch of people were working on computers and talking to each other when I suddenly cut the power so they lost any unsaved work and were plunged into darkness, and I set off some alarm sirens just loud enough they couldn't talk to each other anymore.

Man, those people were such assholes, it was really funny!"

Also, "I mail ordered something then sent it back after playing with it because it was too expensive," = kind of a dick move.

Some people on cell phones are assholes, but there's a bible quote about motes and logs in eyes, or that thing about glass houses and throwing stones.

So, when cell phones first became popular, I had teenage daughters and would mutter "stupid teenagers blocking the door" every time one lingered in a public doorway blocking foot traffic.  As time went by, I noticed the behavior was just as prevalent among the middle aged and elderly as well.  So now I mutter "stupid teenagers blocking the door" to the old people as well.

Plus...  It's one thing to have the thing on while your driving, or your hands are otherwise occupied.  But many times, people will just sit there wearing it, as if the most important call in the universe might happen at any moment.
They look like idiots.

Either that or putting it in their pocket leads to it getting broken or lost, or harder to fetch when they get a call. See, I have one that's easier to where when I'm walking to the train station, riding the train, then driving. Otherwise, I'm spending half the time that my phone is ringing away fumbling the BT out, turning it on, sticking it on my ear, and trying to answer before the person hangs up.

But yeah, they probably care what you think, so we should send out a memo.

Or you could just answer the ever-important call and say, "hang on while I grab my headset."


Which is just idiotic. It changes NOTING on your end that I wear the headset in between calls. Seriously, I'm doing absolutely NOTHING to you if I wear the BT in between calls. I'm not even talking loudly to disturb your inner chorus. If the fact that I didn't take my headset out of my ear after the last call is what bothers you, you should probably just fark off and die. Nothing is ever going to make you happy, and you'll be the one who biatches the loudest. You should probably print up all of Fark, fold it so that it is all sharp edges, and shove the whole works up your ass one sheet at a time.
