Wow, I almost threw a spoon at this guy.
« on: July 15, 2006, 07:08:14 PM »
Me and my mom just went to get something to eat at this diner near us, and we sat near the back, and like 15 minutes after we got there this guy and his girlfriend and his friend come in and sit across from us. And it was cool for about ten minutes, until the second guy takes out his cellphone and starts bitching to his friend WHILE ON SPEAKERPHONE.

And there are a bunch of erm, elderly citizens in that diner at any given time, and he was just like fuck fuck fuck every other word. And we could hear their entire conversation.


I hate hate hate it when people do that. I seriously wanted to chuck something at him or get up and tell him to chill out with the cellphone, but I didn't want to start anything. And no one else said anything either. I think for the same reason.

I know I'm not the only person that gets annoyed by people like that that think we care about their conversations. I vote we all make a pledge to toss something at the next person that does that.  :D Or at least say something to them. It was a big guy, though, with chains and shit all over the place, and I think that's why people were afraid to say something. Still, though. Maybe I should've, or someone should've. It's rude.

Maybe you could have told the waitress and she or maybe the manager could do something.

I hate that stuff too - especially on the trains or bus or even in the supermarket people are always bullshitting on the phone.

I agree.  I also find those push-to-talk phones very annoying.  It can be bad enough hearing one end of a conversation that you'd rather not hear but when you have to hear both ends of it.. along with that annoying beep everytime either one wnats to say something.  It makes me want to help them find a place to put it.  >:(

Speakerphone? Really? You can do that? How horrifying.

Poll: Rudeness in America, 2006
It's the #@%! Cell Phones

In the ranks of rudeness, cell phones reign.

While vast majorities of Americans experience a range of rude behaviors at least occasionally in their daily lives, the one transgression that occurs most often is accompanied by a ring tone: People talking on cell phones, in public places, in a loud or annoying manner.

Eighty-seven percent of Americans in an ABC News "20/20" survey say they encounter that kind of gabbing at least sometimes, and a majority -- 57 percent -- hear it often. That takes the cake for frequency; by contrast, just under four in 10 often experience generally rude or disrespectful behavior, cursing, near-cursing or people interrupting conversations to use e-mail or cell phones.

Me and Will were seeing the movie "Superman Returns".  This guy behind me was yacking on the phone for 5 minutes.  I reached around and took it from him and told him I would give it back at the end of the movie.. But I am 200 pounds and he was a squirt.. I hate that shit to...

I can't for the life of me figure out why people need to yell when they are on their cell phones.  In 1988, it was cool to have a cell phone.  Today, BFD, get over yourself, bitch.  We've all had 7 or 8 of them by now.  lol

I was at a movie a while back and this gal's phone rang just as the movie was starting...Ok, I forgive.  You thought you turned it on silent of off...whatever.  But, NO...5 minutes later the damn thing rang again.  So I go "TURN OFF THE FUCKING PHONE!!!"  Several people around me gave the golf clap.  The phone didn't ring again.   :D

I agree that having the conversation on speaker-phone was totally rude and inconsiderate.  Excuse yourself and go outside.

As far as cell phones go, this woman I work with, who sits in the next cubicle, should get the award for most annoying biatch ever.....she is the loudest person ever and when she has one of her family members call her, at her desk, on her cell phone her ringer volume (and her mouth) is like on the highest setting - so inconsiderate and rude.

Of course people jokingly tell her the phone is loud, she is loud, and she freely admits that she is and continues to do it? WTF?!

I guess it must be God testing me   ;)

People pull that shit at work too.

So I put a page in the fax machine and dial their cell number. Repeatedly they answer the phone and hear the beeping of the fax.  Then after awhile they get annoyed and shut that shit off.

Try it Jordan let me know how it goes over.

Hi Jeff:

I love problem solvers like you  :)

I'm going to test that solution out next time.


Can't we all just get along?

In fact sometimes a few of us come into my office and we do it....we hear the person get pissed and then u hear laughter from my office.

It really pisses me off....especially on the street all these people yapping on their cellphones like theyre so self-important.  Then they think theyre cool when you hear them say "F this" or "F that".

I despise the rudeness of people where cell phones are concerned...I will not take mine into a restaurant.   I'm usually with someone, why would I want to receive a call?   I don't like being on the end of anyone's leash....

Oh, a few Sundays ago the Priest was giving the sermon, someone's ANNOYING musical cell phone went off, and the ignoramous fumbled around with it for 5 minutes trying to make it shut up.....if you can't operate one, don't get one!
