I don’t remember exactly when this became a “thing” … but it’s annoying as fuck! If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, it’s when someone carries on their phone conversation using the SPEAKERPHONE on their cell phone in a public place … when they are ALONE! First of all, why would you want everybody in the vicinity hearing your conversation. (Oh, that’s right … everybody thinks they are sooooo fucking important). Second of all, it’s obnoxious! I don’t need to hear you drone on to your girlfriend about how nobody at work appreciates what you do and Becky got the promotion and she doesn’t even do anything all day! Shut the fuck up! As far as I know, a phone can still be held up to the ear and you can hear the person through the earpiece … and then I don’t have to be bored with all the mundane facts of your miserable, pointless existence. And it cracks me up how these people will hold the phone right in front of their mouth so that the person can hear them talk and then when the other person starts talking they move the phone up to their ear so they can hear. If you just hold the phone the way it’s SUPPOSED to be held, you don’t have to keep moving it back and forth. It will actually allow you to speak and hear while keeping it in one position!! The speakerphone was made so that when there are multiple people in the room everybody can hear the conversation … that you have in a PRIVATE place … like your house … not walking up and down the aisles in the grocery store!
