Hear What I’m Saying?
It’s one thing to tut-tut about these situations. But the fact is, all of us who own a cell phone, PDA or digital music player swore we’d never use it in certain ways — and sooner or later, we’ve caught ourselves doing just that. Think: Have you ever shushed someone to answer your cell? Or worse, just ignored them? Or maybe you’ve slowed down the deli line because, listening blissfully to “Thriller” on your iPod, you didn’t realize that the person behind the counter was, yes, talking to you . As one technophile wrote me, we all think, “I’m one of the good guys!! [But] it happens to the best of us.”
Fun and (for me) appropriate op-ed from the Post.
