Cellphones have turned blithering idiots into ignorant blithering idiots.

Remember a few weeks back I posted that I went to the library and was blown away by what I saw?

Here's what I didn't post.

A woman comes up to me and asks if she could use my cellphone. I tell her 'No' as it's my work-phone, its nothing but bad news and customer complaints (I smile)

She presses the issue , so the nice guy inside of me relents, and then hangs her the phone.

After 15 minutes or so I am keeping an eye on the woman. Don't run out the door with it.

After 35-40 minutes I go over to her, tell her that 'I have to go' and take the phone back.

No thank you at all. I look at my call history and she made 12 phone calls in 40 minutes.

Borrow meant (I thought) may I use it once and give it right back. Evidently not.
