Phonies

Ok here’s the deal. Nobody and I mean nobody is interested in your personal phone calls. It’s like people feel compelled to use their cell phone in public simply because it’s in their pocket! For example, when you get on the plane, you don’t have to call and tell the person that you “just boarded the plane” Ok! They’ll figure it out on the other end of the trip when they go to pick you up and your there. If for some reason you’re not going to make it, when you get off the plane you can find a corner and call to readjust.
2nd When you are by yourself at a restaurant that doesn’t give you the right to call someone and have a conversation. Why punish me just because nobody wants to come and have dinner with you? Have you considered the fact that maybe they don’t show up because you won’t shut up? If you happen to glance my direction you will notice me having a quiet, RESPECTFUL conversation with my wife or friends that have joined us. See the rule is if I can’t see whom you are talking too…shut up! You have lost conversation privileges. You want to earn it back? Get a friend.
Invading my audio space is as rude as invading my physical space. Would you be comfortable if I walked up to you, 4 inches from your face and just stared? Of course not. You would instantly put your I-phone down and ask me what my problem was. The answer of course is you. If you can have an obnoxious conversation with someone I can’t see, then I’m going to have a conversation with you in my mind!
By the way, how do you not realize that your speaking 10 times higher decibels than with an actual physically present human next to you. If you spoke to a dimensional person like that people would think you were nuts.
Another thing. Quit forgetting to turn your phone off in a theatre, church, and school assemblies. Come on! If you’re a big enough boy to have modern technology you should be big enough to remember the off button. Kind of like when your kid “forgets” to do his chores. After awhile there is no excuse and you get sent to your room.
If none of this makes sense to you have officially reached the stage of “I’m oblivious” which is a kind way of saying inconsiderate and/or rude. Do with it as you please, as I no longer believe the nation has a set of decorum as postmodern thought has broken down the last vestige of absolutes even in the area of civility. But it does give me a chance to vent, on paper, which is better than screaming at you, on the phone…in public. The End

The 4th of July is pure GUY!!
Americans love to celebrate stuff. Heck that’s why we have holidays every month of the year; we need an excuse to celebrate. The celebration is the experience by the way, rarely are we actually celebrating what the holiday is for. You don’t believe me? We have a holiday called Arbor Day that

Die in your sleep
Where did we ever come up with the romantic notion that the best way to die is in our sleep? First things first, when it comes to dying, there really isn’t a “good” way to go. Why? Because you’re dead! Dying in your sleep I believe comes with a lot of potential pitfalls. The first being i

Shut that baby up!
Traveling today on an airplane next to the infamous crying. Screaming fidgety babies, while annoying, don’t bother me that much. Granted it’s unpleasant, but having had 2 kids myself I have the expertise to educate the baby-less in this little known fact. Believe it or not, one cannot reason

The Atheist Missionary
You know my fellow Americans, when it comes to military service, shouldn’t there be at least some basic requirements? When I think of a serviceman, I think of John Wayne, George Washington or Patton! I think of a rough and tumble, gritty, pull no punches man’s man! The military is no place

Fast cars and no seat belts
Americans know what they want when it comes to cars. We love convertibles for example because it’s the open air. It’s part of our heritage. Americans love to travel, and we are the experts. We travel everywhere we go, otherwise, we wouldn’t get anywhere. We are the lineage of a people that wer
