You Know How I Know You're...

It's time for red-blooded Americans everywhere to fight back against the Blue Tooth!

Thursday night, while picking up some dinner at a local Asian eatery, I noticed a couple things.  There was a DVD player behind the cashier and the waiter was wearing a Blue Tooth on his ear.  I guess a lot of down time there, although the kid with the Blue Tooth in had a stable full of tables.  I'm just wondering, but if you were out eating and your server had a Blue Tooth in, wouldn't you have to ask, "Do you think I can get a refill before you make your next call?"  Or how about, "Hey, I see you have one of those fancy Blue Tooth things, I guess we don't have to tip you, Ha, Ha!"

Now this is romance.  Am I wrong, ladies?

Seriously, what's with the Blue Tooth?  I get it-- you're so busy you can't go to the bathroom without a communication device stuck to your ear, but have you looked at yourself?  My friend and neighbor, who's a realtor, has one in constantly and every time I see him I remind him how stupid he looks.  I'm sorry, the people that wear these things, while they may be great, kind, caring Americans who love freedom, might as well be wearing a clown suit.  And the other thing is, everybody I've ever seen with a Blue Tooth in IS NEVER TALKING ON IT!  So, it's just there to let people know you could get a call at any time and you have tons of people who might desperately need to call you even on a Sunday evening while you're eating at Outback?

I am absolutely amazed Laura Ingalls was able to survive without this communication device out on the prairie in her little house.

And that, friends, is what grinds my gears.

    Hey Kurt! Sorry I missed you on the tour. Say hi to the fam! And no-- Big Jim would've slapped a blue tooth off the head of anyone working.

    Say, Jason, do you think your Grandfather, or yourself, would have let his waitresses and bus people wear this while on duty? I think NOT! Wearing one of these in public is one way of distancing yourself from society...wearing one of these while waiting on customers is just totally rude!!! Love to watch you on 11:00 news. Cristal and Diana say HI!!!
