People who talk/text on their cell phones while driving make me crazy. The car is not a place to be talking on the phone, texting, or anything but paying attention to the road.
George said Joubert was driving “with the vehicle’s warning lights and directional signal on” when Biddle hit the fire truck. Neither man was injured, but the 2008 Dodge Charger driven by Biddle was seriously damaged. Biddle was charged with negligent driving, State Police said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon.
While I have no idea if the kid who hit the fire truck was on his cell phone it wouldn’t surprise me in the least. Cell phones, as far as I’m concerned, are the bane of our existence. Like guns, they serve no useful purpose. Cell phones, and guns, shouldn’t be manufactured. All designs should be destroyed.
Nothing is so important it can’t wait until you get home. For those of you who think you *need* them I challenge you to explain to me why you chose the word “need” and not “want.” Humans lived for thousands of years without cellphones and did just fine without them. Christ, those of us over thirty didn’t have them when we were growing up and it not having one didn’t scar us.
And don’t use the “emergency” argument with me. Rarely — if ever — do individuals get emergency phone calls on their cells. Cell phones are a pointless distraction. Most of people have them to keep up with the jones’ not because cell phones are necessary. Conformity to the “American” norm, that’s all, not need.
Believe me, there is nothing more annoying then when sitting at someone’s house, or out to dinner, or in a waiting room, and having to listen to cell phone chatter. I mean, really, what makes you think I want to listen to you? And when someone is visiting you in your home, it’s rude to talk on any phone for any length of time.
You know, all you cell phoners are gonna get brain cancer and the wonder how come.
