I have a new gripe today - mobile phones. Now I do love having my mobile phone around, and I especially love the way that it's taken over my life, but I do have some things I need to rant about. First of all, how annoying is it when someone's
mobile phone starts ringing at an inappropriate time? Like in the movie theaters...you've come to watch a movie, not watch it and narrate it to some kid in Ethiopia who has never heard of Keanu
Reeves. Or even in church...can you believe that? I don't know how many times I've sat in church trying not to fall asleep, only to hear someone's
mobile phone start blaring out some ridiculous ring tone. I mean, if that ain't Jesus calling, switch the damn thing off! Just imagine, you're at someone's
funeral and your mobile starts going off - "Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to...*RING* HEY BABY DROP IT DOWN JUST WANNA SEE YOU TOUCH THE GROUND.."
I mean that's more sacrilegious
than saying the Pope looks like Gollum
Apart from ringing at inappropriate times and featuring some of the world's worst ringtones
, I also hate the new music-enabled phones. Why? Simply because people who own these phones like to think that the world needs to hear their kind of taste in music. So I see people all over the place holding their mobile phone up to their face, blasting some fucked up song as loud as it can go. Haven't these people heard of earphones? Or cerebral implants? When I go out for a walk I see these 2 and a half cent wannabes blaring some lameass
rap song from their Nokias
, or there are the sweet old ladies walking along with Oh meri sona re sona re
blaring from their speakerphone. I think my goal for the future won't be to stop world hunger, but to make sure that every person, no matter where they are in the world, has a pair of headphones...try making that
your mission statement at the Miss World pageant!
