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

What is marriage for?
Hi my friends. With the Holidays once again upon us I think of the gratefulness I have for my wife who has walked with and put up with me for 22 years. That being said I stumbled upon this blog I wrote in Aug of 2009 which is 5 years ago. ( or 12 years ago if you believe in common core math) I

Isn't dead stuff beautiful?
Well fall is finally here and that always brings with it those beautiful colors and symbols that we all cherish and hang on to as a nation. Of course I am referring to blood, corpses and fear. Halloween is right around the corner, I know that because the moment you walk around the corner someone or

Men at work, Women at whine
Did I ever tell you the story about the city of Atlanta taking down the “Men at work” signs from road construction over a complaint by the editor of a feminist magazine that it was discriminatory by not including women? Is nothing too paranoid for the PC-eople? So THAT’S how men have been do

No cell "signal".
I have complained about the lack of turn signals being used in America in one of my DVD's awhile back. (Which one I'm unsure of as believe it or not I forget half the stuff I do on an old album cause I'm always working on a new one.) I was really flabbergasted though as people even began stopping

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
