I can't start by saying, To all of you cell phone users; cause I now have one myself. However, I still don't consider myself to be as horrible as the average user who thinks they HAVE to answer their phone just because its ringing! I mean really, it tells you who called if you miss it even if you don't have voice mail. You can call them back in a few minutes. While purchasing my first cell phone less than a month ago, I went with my boyfriend, while dealing with the sales person his phone rang not once but twice, he answered it both times, leaving me and the worker standing there to complain about the lack of ettiquette that comes along with cell phone use. I work for a financial institution and have come into many situations that leave me sitting at my wicket hands folded and staring at a client that thinks a conversation about their weekend events is more important than their finances. Sometimes I will proceed with the transaction, when it turns out it wasn't completed the way they intended its my fault casue they weren't paying attention. How many times have I almost lost my life because soemone thinks they can text and drive, or go 150km on the high way and talk on the phone. Come on people, think about what your doing. I don't want to talk to you if your on the toilet, so don't call me and please don't answer the phone!

happily awaiting a return call
