Bluetooth headsets (And other annoying gadgets)

I love gadgets as much as the next guy. Hell, probably a lot more than the next guy. But there are some gadgets that are just abused recently.

Case in point, the bluetooth headset:


Yes, they are extremely convenient. They can even be a safety tool. We have all read the research about talking on your cell phone while driving. That's fine. Please, feel free to wear it while you drive so you can hopefully keep from cutting me off in traffic and forcing me to greet you in a rather ungentlemanly way.

However, it is NOT necessary to wear this thing ALL THE DAMN TIME. Are you really expecting to receive an urgent call while you're walking around in Wal-Mart? You're only going in to buy cat food and Q-Tips. That call from your husband asking how long to put the lasagna in the microwave can wait a few minutes, don't you think?

What's that? How did I know you were only going into the store for cat food and Q-Tips? Why, because I followed you, of course! My friends and I discretely mocked you from a distance while I silently formed this blog post in my head.

And speaking of annoying gadget use... Please, for the love of God and all things holy, save the laser pointers for presentations or entertaining your cats! The next time one of you little bastards shines me in the eyes with one of those things, I'm going to give you the beating your parents should have given you YEARS ago.

Oh... And you. Aspiring writer guy/girl. Is there really a need to record your every thought into that nifty little voice recorder your mommy got you for Christmas?

Just stop it.

  6. "However, it is NOT necessary to wear this thing ALL THE DAMN TIME." Unless you are David Liebe-Hart, then it is acceptable.

  7. I hate when people are talking on their blue tooth headset and you cant see it, then you respond to something they say and they look at you funny.

  9. Lol, I see people wearing this thing all over the place. It's for people who have an unwarranted sense of self-importance.

  12. One of the digital media product managers in my office who sits across from me wears a Bluetooth headset for conference calls. While on a call, he will get up and pace around, which annoys the crap out of me. News flash - the other PMs don't do that, so you just look like a douche.

    This behavior is the tip of the iceberg for this guy, by the way.
