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 in the middle of the road to go left or right w/o a signal. (Probably to make it more difficult to know which direction to point your head in order to yell at them in time?) But the other day I figured out what started the lack of signals phenomenon. Do YOU know? Take a sec to guess before I tell you….ready?………………………..cell phones!

People began holding the phone to their ear and were unable, in mid conversation, to get to the signal. So…since their conversation was more critical than common courtesy, safety, and obeying the law, a new narcissistic pattern was inserted into society.


Phones used to come on cords which accomplished two important things 1) kept you in the designated “phone area” so I or anyone else in the restaurant / waiting area / checkout line, weren’t subjected to your one-way conversation reminiscent of a drunk or recently released schizophrenic. Cords were reminiscent of a leash to keep you from wandering all over the neighborhood, but instead, to stay in your own area where others can avoid your barking or having you urinate on their lawn.

The other plus to the cord was it kept you from carrying on a phone conversation while driving. I know it seems nit-picky but I would just assume you focus on driving instead of your conversation telling your friend what time you think you’ll arrive since YOU’RE GOING TO BE THERE IN A FEW MINUTES ANYWAY!

I find it telling that technology constantly seems to provide for the individual while isolating and dismissing the community. Making life easier and more convenient for me means how it affects you becomes irrelevant. I promise you will never see me driving my car while holding a phone to my ear; I have a hands free device! At least I always signal.

I think they stopped using turn signals even before cell phones. They seem to think they’re they only ones on the road and everyone else must yield to them. There is a lack of being consideration for others because everyone is so only thinking of themselves.
