|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.
