To the Editor:

As one who owns but rarely uses a cellphone, I find the clamor about their public use remarkable (''Taking Cellphone Rudeness to New Heights,'' letters, Dec. 30).

Is it rude to conduct a conversation in public? Of course not. Why, then, is it rude to use a cellphone? It must not be, after all, as it is simply a one-sided conversation, which is only peculiar but therefore noticeable, where an ordinary conversation would not be.

It's just a new kind of behavior. Get over it, people!

Hear hear. Give me a glare for talking on the phone on the bus. Cheerist people, it's a goddamn public bus. If my conversation is interrupting your enjoyment of the engine noise, then you need help.


  • Last post

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
