Arrogant Cell Phone Talking Speeding Tailgators

February 6, 2005

Twice while driving in the last couple of days, I've had a driver talking on a cell phone get right up on my bumper. The first one honked to make sure I knew she was there. The other one, I just happened to notice in my rear view mirror. Instead of honking, the second one threw his free hand up in the air in frustration. I guess he was frustrated because he was going to have to get into the passing lane to pass me. There were no other cars anywhere near.

Both times, as they passed, they shot the finger at me.

So I am placing a curse this week on all the arrogant cell phone talking speeding tailgators not limited to the two who shot the finger at me. I don't think I really have cursing powers, but if I never try, I'll never succeed. The curse is that at least once this week, food or drink is spilled on their clothes in circumstances that they can't change clothes before they have to see people. Whether it be work or an important appointment or everwhat (as my Aunt Bea used to say), they will have to face other humans with a big spill on their clothes.

Let me know if you see people with spills on their clothes. Maybe the curse worked.

Cell Phones Suck. A Lot.

December 17, 2004

I decided the other day that I need to break down and get a cellphone. Irish Kelly just got a prepaid one, and I thought that's the way to go since I only want it for emergencies. Then I started reading about the plans. I thought I could buy a phone and pay for some minutes and not pay anything again until I used the minutes. Nope. I still have to pay for "service" even if I don't use it. Bastages.
