SOB of the week

Mr. Won't-Wait-To-Whiz, like the rest of us, has been living with or around cell phones for years now. In the early days, one could sigh when someone talked loudly in a barber's chair, outside a lecture hall or somewhere else of questionable appropriateness, safe in the knowledge that this new technology would soon develop rules of reasonable use that would be obeyed by most people and enforced by millions of shushing citizens. But it's been five years since my first phone, and nothing has changed.

This morning, I shared a bathroom with someone who was holding a conversation at a urinal. Sure, I've seen people who have carried conversations into the bathroom, or those who use a stall as a private area in which to conduct (telephonic) business, but this was a new low. Aren't you supposed to wash your hands before touching anything else after using bathroom facilities? Can't the person you're calling hear you as you urinate?

Mr. Won't-Wait-To-Whiz, I don't know whether society has failed you, or if you have failed society.

LOL. Great post. But I gotta say, I still would like to know the same of the senator who Clinton was talking to when you-know-who was doing you-know-what to his you-know-where.

"Yes, Senator, ohhhhhhhhhhhh yeah, I agree with you. I think you've reached a point further beyond where anyone else has."

And the Senator thought Clinton was talking policy!
