Just some random thoughts about cellphones.
Is there a proper etiquette for handling a dropped call? That is, if you are having a conversation with someone that is abruptly ended by a dropped call what are you supposed to do?
Do you immediately try and call them back or do you wait for them to call you back. Here is a slight variation on that. You’re in the middle of a call when someone beeps in for the person you are speaking with. They click over and while you are waiting for them to return the call is dropped.
What do you do then?
You have probably noticed that some people have a habit of yelling into their cellphones. As you can imagine I have as much interest in their conversation as they do in mine. Sometimes I’ll react to their actions by singing quite loudly.
Other times I may respond by asking them if they still beat their wife or how do the neighbors feel about living next to a sex offender. I know, it is juvenile behavior and not very nice but sometimes …
Actually if I could I’d respond the way that these musicians did when someone began speaking during their concert.
