In a public bathroom stall, a man is chatting away. I assumed he was on a cell phone. He walks out, while washing up, he starts to chat more. I thought he was talking to me and replied.

I love my Blue Tooth but don't use it in public. It gets confusing.

Yeah, I think it looks quite stupid to be walking around in public with the headset on. I think it's a great idea in the car as the wired kind always gets in the way. But I don't think you'll catch me walking around in public with a headset on.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...

I hate people who walk around with those things on their heads... like "I'm so important, I may need to take a call at any moment" Although, when I want to screw around, I'll put my non-bluetooth handsfree in my ear, and just start bitching people out to their face, and be like "ohh... sorry, I'm on the phone"... but there really isn't even a phone in my pocket

yeah, you totally look like a douche if you wear your bluetooth in public. I don't really use mine anymore because of that reason.

Hey I have one too, I just think we look seriously goofy walking around in public with them. I know one thing, I left my phone at home accidentally when I went up to the gap this weekend, even though there is little to no signal strength up there, it made the weekend better not having to worry about checking voicemail, text messages, and all the other crap that comes with technology (it also seriously pissed off my girlfriend who worried about me all weekend if I was dead or not, yeah I am in a lot of trouble for that one.) I still miss those days of not having to worry about anything other than whats going on around you when you were a kid.

i know, sometimes it is a relief to not have it, then other times i feel like i left my right arm at home...but with being so busy with my own business and my partners calling me, jlb being out of town, and having a semi-social life sometimes i need it just so i know where I am!!!

I use mine in public and don't care. Everyone thinks I'm a little "off" anyway. I aughta try just putting my hand up to my face in that "phone symbol" and talk into my thumb. Gonna try that tomorrow and see how it works.

I couldn't use my bluetooth earset the entire time I was at the Gap over the weekend because there is no signal, but ya know what...I was on vacation, and I enjoyed not talking to anyone on the phone, and worring about checking voicemail!!! Although I sure did use the bluetooth a hell ofa lot on the 10 hour drive home though.
