mobile when you're immobile

I've been wanting to post an entry about the upcoming federal election, but I'm too tired to get my thoughts together. I'll share this instead: of all the peculiar ways and places people use (and annoy others) with their cellular telephones, why, oh why, does anyone think it's acceptable to talk whilst sitting on the toilet in a public bathroom? Like the person on the other end won't be able to figure out where you are when a toilet flushes!

Gross me dead!

Do you intend to run a negative ad campaign? Also MRouge, I noticed you said "public" bathroom. Are we to infer you condone private/household toilet cellphone conversations?

I know people who won't even take their cell phones in the washroom with them: "here, can you hold this? I gotta go pee" or they set it on the floor outside. Is this normal? Then if it rings you just have to stand there and wait for it to stop. Yes, it's not cool to talk on your phone when you're at the urinal, but what's wrong with leaving it in your pocket?

On another note, I saw Brokeback Mountain tonight. It was beautiful and sad. I haven't really decided if it was about a "gay" relationship or what that even means anyway, but it was a powerful movie about hardship and relationships in general.

I could not agree more, leave the cell phone calls out of the washroom and out of Banana Republic. (At least that's my campagin). Remember, I work in medicine with patients and I take less calls than the average American on any given day. What's that about?

Why is it always about poo with you?

And for God's Sake get a mobile phone all ready so you can stop complaining about them.

SirB: Brokeback certainly is a powerful movie about love and heartbreak and all of those things. I'm glad you saw it.

AG: I get the impression your cellular calling patterns are more about quality than quantity. I wish more cellular users were like you.

YJA: I'll probably get a cell when I have a reason to be reachable. i.e. new job or new boyfriend.
