QUIET!

Enough!  It’s too noisy, too much of the time!  The cab driver’s talking on his phone and you can’t turn off the noise-machine in the back.  You enter your apartment to tv’s blaring.  Even on a quiet walk in the country you still can’t get away from the cellphones.  Shhhh! Please!  Sometimes, I need a few moments of silence.  Don’t you?

  1. This builds on so many conversations that I have had with friends about the proper time to use cell phones!

  2. I wonder sometimes if it has something to do with people not being comfortable being alone anymore. I noticed several years ago when cell phones first started popping up everywhere that it seemed like people couldn’t just walk around, even doing something simple like running errands, by themselves anymore without feeling, or at least looking, like they were “connected.” I don’t know what that means, or even if it’s an inherently bad thing, but it bothers me too.
