This week in the randomness that is Wednesday we were charged with writing an angry letter to whomever we wished. Before I leap onto my soapbox I need to share a pic
And you are welcome.
Anyway, angry letter. Jeez there's a veritable list of people who need to be shouted at. Me (since I haven't written in . . . a while), parents who pretend to homeschool their children, people who think stop signs are a suggestion . . . I could go on and on. Today though I am going to address people and their love of cell phones.
*clearing throat and stepping onto my soapbox*
Dear Jerks Who Are Married to Cell Phones,
You are incredibly sad. I see you walking, sitting, and scarily driving with your eyes trained on your phones. The driving is where I have the most issue. I see you get in your cars and immediately pick up the phone. Really?? I can't imagine you are so important you need to be in constant contact with humanity. I think your friends/family/whoever will survive if you aren't talking or texting to them. Yeah, see if you continue on, the rest of us might not survive your idiocy. You cannot focus on the phone and the road at the same time. It just doesn't work. As someone said to me a few days ago, "I took my eyes off the road for a second. My phone was ringing." And I know this because she rear-ended us. She was so busy trying to answer her stupid phone she hit the car Sis and I were driving. Thankfully, none of us were hurt, but the car has damage and this woman's insurance is going to have to pay for it. And why? Because she couldn't stop with the phone.
In the bookstore, grocery store, Target, I see you. You're so focused on your phone you don't pay any attention to your kids. They're running around, playing with toys (which aren't their toys to play with) and generally getting into trouble. But do you parent? Nope, you are too busy with your phone. When your children are grown they're going to remember the fact that your phone was so much more interesting than they were. Good job.
I see you in the restaurant too. You're sitting across from your date/wife/girlfriend and you are so focused on your phone. You don't notice she's looking around bored. Yeah, if it's a date you won't get another. If she's your girlfriend let's hope she leaves your ass for someone who will actually pay attention and talk to her. If she's your wife . . . .then damn I feel way sorry for her. Since you are a rude and self-centered jerk.
Yeah, so put down the phone. Especially in the car since I don't want anyone I know to die because you are a dumbass. Put down the phone and parent your children, pay attention to the people who are living and breathing right in front of you.
Wow, do I feel better!! Now go and check out the other bloggers angry letters.
