I've managed to live 64 years without an electronic umbilical cord (except occasionally carrying a pager for work when on call) just fine so why should I want to be tied to one now? Even worse, have to pay for that dependence? I might as well be shooting up drugs.
Cell phones are handy and very useful—I carry one for emergencies—but people have become too dependent on them, to the point of being downright obnoxious and rude. I detest having to listen to some inconsiderate jerk speaking loudly into one while I'm trying to enjoy a meal at a restaurant (don't the idiots realize the blasted things are amplified?). Or listening to one going off in a theater or, even worse, the moron answering it. Then there are the wackadoodles endangering everyone's lives driving and talking on a cell phone (every boneheaded driving maneuver I see is almost always done by some clown with a cell phone glued to their ear) or, even worse texting.
I've had people demand my cell phone number or chew me out for not having it turned on. What's with that? Excuse me, it's my time not anyone else's.
Cell phones are a wonderful invention that had the potential to greatly benefit humankind but people have become selfish and inconsiderate of others with them. I certainly would not have tolerated that boor's cellphone use like the young lady in the video did. If someone wants to be with me, they had better be with me, not their *&^%$#@! phone.
