Observations made this morning during my commute: The prevalence of cell phones, and especially itty-bitty Bluetooth phone headsets, makes it tricky telling who's nutters and who's actually talking to a real person these days.
Then again, who hasn't mumbled to themselves on the train for giggles and guffaws?
Yes! This bothers me. Differentiating nutjobs is one of my urban survival skills.
And now if I talk to myself loudly while walking home in an iffy part of town late to ward off crazies, people just think I'm on a headset. :(
Agreed. I can't stand those things. I've seen people sitting in restaurants with friends, their friggin' bluetooth crammed into their ear as if they're so important they might get a call any second they absolutely HAVE to take. Get over yourself already.
