|Not all grumpy old men. I will add my two cents here. I have a cell phone, laptop and now have added a gps for my car. I also have a iPod. But that is as far as I go right now. I am on Facebook but have no use to Twitter .
I am with Ole . I don't understand people that wander around the store with the cell phone attached to their ears. Worse than that is the bluetooth . Now my friend who is in business and has clients contacting him all day needs one . He also has the hearing aids connected by a wire around his neck like Bama has. He says it puts a voice in the middle of his head. clearest he has heard in years . That I understand but why do teenagers need a blue tooth ? Why are all those people talking to themselves as they are walking around ? Oh wait they are not , they are talking to someone else.
In Columbia South Carolina a couple of years ago I was going to a store near USC. Classes had just gotten out. I could not believe all the young people walking along with a cell phone in one ear and an ipod in the other . They were all walking with others but it seems talking to someone at a distance is more important than the people right next to you.
Around here in Southern California I see young mothers pushing strollers with their child in them and a cell phone glued to their ear. First of all can they be paying attention to the streets they are crossing with the cell in their ear? Then isn't this a good time to be talking to their child putting language in so the child can learn? Or is this a thing of the past and next we will see children with blue tooths calling their parents.
Last rant , I was in the bank the other day waiting in a long line. There were two preteens sitting in waiting chairs with cell phones. Both phones beeped constantly. I finally realized they were texting each other from two feet away . Their father was in line in front of me. I found this out when I made some comment about can't they just talk to each other . He made some comment about his phone bill. WHO IS IN CHARGE?
Okay add me to the grumpy old ladies .
Susan a ludite in some things.
