Crazy is as Crazy Does

Filed under: Around the Neighborhood — Beth @ 3:21 pm

Effective July 1, it became illegal in the state of California to drive using your cell phone. So now, every Tom, Dick, ad Harriet walks around wearing a bluetooth headphone. Everyone but me of course, since my fabulous car has built-in bluetooth. And I think I would just look silly walking around wearing my car.

So, everywhere you go you see people who are seemingly talking to themselves.

The other day I was in the supermarket parking lot and I saw a woman coming in my general direction and she was talking to herself. I didn’t really give it another thought. (See above about everyone walking around talking to themselves.)

As the woman approached I noticed something was not quite right but I couldn’t put my finger quite on it.

There she was, yammering away. I passed her as she approached a light pole. She stopped walking. She was getting very agitated and not a little loud.

This is the point where I noticed she wasn’t actually wearing any kind of headset.

  1. ha ha i can relate to that only the other way around. somebody walking along talking earnestly and unashamedly to themselves but actually are talking on the phone. i am used to it now. i don’t think blue-tooths are cool though. i have enough trouble getting earplugs for computer use plugged into my ears. very uncomfortable i find. the car blue-tooth set-up sounds very very sweet. lucky you!
