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.
