I was in the airport today coming home from visiting my Dad in California. Just about everyone uses a cellphone in the airport, and now even on the plane. The guy next to me wouldn't shut up for 25 minutes. The lady a few seats over was loud enough to hear across the room. Then they hang up and call somebody else, or else they get up to leave and somebody else does the same thing.
Can it be so hard to go 2 hours without being on the phone? Must everybody around have to hear the conversation? Why can't these people just relax, shut up and enjoy the trip.

It's not lawful in the US to use a cellphone while the plane is airborne. But the cell companies want the law changed. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-1.gif

cell phones are such a pain in the butt.

i hate it when im ringing up a persons items at work, im a cashier at a supermarket, and theyre on their phone. it especially bothers me when they hang up and say oh i wanted paper bags. yes people have done that. hmm im sorry ma'am i cannot read minds. :rolleyes:

the only time i really use my phone is for what they should be for - emergency type issues.

whats also bad about people on planes is when they have their laptops with them and they keep them on the whole time, even when theyre supposed to have them off. do people really want to sacrafice w/e could go wrong with the plane or the directions the pilots are recieving to send an email or check their email or gab to a friend on their cell?

I hate people talking so loud on their mobiles around here, it drives me crazy, they can walk around with it but they don't bother.

I couldn't live without my mobile. But I hardly ever make voice calls. Just data services.

If you ask me, people pay less and less respect to each other in general, using cell phones in public and bothering others in cinemas are only two of many examples.

I got a mobile phone a year or so back. Its a really old one by modern standards but I am proud to say that I have only ever used it once and I have not even looked at it for at least 12 months. Thats one year, mobile addicts.

The fact thats its old has nothing to do with me not using it, I just don't want to end up like those people you see using them all the time.

I once knew a guy who had an average phone bill of a whopping 1000 bucks. Now that's: :eek:

Cellphones are quite irritating. Nowadays they are more about style than about utility. You have cellphones the size of peanuts...I dont see any sense, whatsoever , in that.

Keeping the cellphones on during flight is very dangerous, there's a reason they tell you to keep them off. Some people just dont understand safety.

I have mine in case of emergencies only. If someone does call me I hope that they would get straight to the point...no i don't want to hear about your mother, your father or how you messed around with your boyfriend's friend last friday. Say what you need to say and get off the phone http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif The other reason I keep mine is that it's cheaper than a landline.

I am also a cashier at a supermarket and the same thing happens to me. Sometimes they never hang up and are still gabbing on the way out the door. At least I don't have to talk to them! It gets worse every year. It used to happen only once in a while. Now it's every day. They wouldn't gab on phone while they were with their doctor, so why don't they respect other professions?

Sometimes on the way to work there is a slow driver holding me up so I pass them and I look to see who they are, and they are using a cell phone. That's why they they are not paying attention to driving.

As long as people dont use cell phones during cinema and while driving, its fine by me. I dont use my cell phone a lot. And I always put it in silent mode during cinema and while driving. That's the way it should be. I have seen people make and receive calls during cinema, and its highly irritating. They dont even have the common sense to put it in silent mode, let alone switch it off.

I think a good rule for driving is never do anything that you wouldn't do with the examiner sitting beside you during your driver's license test!

If I was wantafanta I would've just asked those people if they could please lower their voices down, since I wanted to relax and enjoy the trip.
