I own a cell phone, but most of the time I can’t tell you where it is and I honestly cannot remember the number. You see, I hate talking on the phone, but more importantly, the idea of using it in a public space such as a cafe is absolutely abhorrent to me. So, here I am sitting in a cafe grading papers and this women is yapping away with no care in the world and with no sense that those around her may not be interested in what her son is eating for breakfast. Since I can’t say this directly to her, allow me to vent: SHUT THE F–K UP!
