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.
