or in stores, or in theaters or in buses or when they are behind you walking so you can follow their entire conversation.
Remember when phone calls were private? and now people are worried about wiretaps, lol.

Amen!

Now for the sake of another good old fashion "Sprited Debate", let's discuss the following topic: "Talking on your cell phone WHILE street racing".

nghtrnnr, you have the floor....

I can't STAND cell phone talker/drivers! They're always braking for no apparent reason and changing lanes without looking, etc., etc., etc.

And then there's the doofus' that are always looking for something around their front seat, the floor... Just drive it or park it, wouldya! I actually yell things at dummies - with the window up, mostly, so I don't get shot at. It makes me feel better. *LOL*
