    So....whats the most annoying place that you have had folks gabbing on their phones?

    or

    What is the most interesting/annoying/personal cell phone conversation that you have overheard?

    I'll start....there is this chick at the gym who carries hers while she walks the track so everyone around her gets to hear her yammer on and on about every little thing in her life. And of course, this means that she walks slow cause if she walks fast, she is too out of breath to gab. I really just wanna... [​IMG].

    I cannot stand it when someone is in line to order at a fast food place and then takes a call while everyone else is standing behind them waiting. SO RUDE!

    In the movie theater while the opening credits are starting. I hate that. And why do they think the glow from thier phones is less rude when they text thruout the movie?

    The library and the city bus. The worst is the bus because you can't escape it.

    The movies. Nowadays there's always at least one brat talking LOUD on a cell phone during a movie. [​IMG]

    I think that commercial on tv where the girl lays her phone down and her mouth is talking to it while she goes and does her thing is the most disgusting, ignorant and insulting to our intelligence thing I have ever seen.

    Resturants, and movies. Here you HAVE to turn it to vibrate or else.

    One of the worst is a guy who was obviously taking his elderly father out to lunch. All during lunch the son was talking in his bluetooth while dad sat and ate his dinner ALONE!!!!!! I don't think the guy said one word to his dad through the whole meal.

    Yakking on your phone while driving through an active school zone chaps my hide as well.

    Silkydragon, my mom does that on a land line. I think if I leaned out the window I could hear her from Alaska. I hope she never gets a cell phone. [​IMG]

    I hate it - - absolutely hate it - - when people talk on their cell phones when they are in a public restroom. It drives me nuts.

    I start flushing toliets and running water and making the noisy hand dryers go off. ANYTHING to interrupt their conversation.

    It is soooooo rude to the person they are talking to and it so rude to me - to try to talk to somebody on the cell phone while in the BATHROOM ! ! !OMG!
