And the only thing worse than having to hear one person talking on a cell phone are the speaker phones where both sides of the conversation can be heard. It's none of my business what two people who I don't know have to say. This is especially the case when they are arguing. I'm not curious. It doesn't seem like something I should hear. But I guess there aren't any secrets anymore. Anyone, anywhere can read what I'm writing right now. I like that, though. The difference is that my newspaper state of mind makes me want to write to other people, not to myself.
Another thing that can't happen when no phone booths exist in a city are contests to see how many people can be crammed into one. Those are always humorous.
