OH my goodness! I am so over the rudeness of cell phones I want to scream! I have said it before and I will say it again. “The cell phone is not the most important thing in your world!” Oh I so long for the days when yo had to be home to get a call and messages were left on an answering machine for when it was convenient to listen tot hem…the good ole days!
So again I have been annoyed with cell phones and again sharing it in my WTFriday post! Here was the latest for me in my little world.
I was at my friends wedding a few weeks ago. Yes I said WEDDING!
OK before I go on let’s reiterate the two times that I believe is the most important times to shut off the cell phones BEFORE you walk in.
Of course there are many more appropriate times but shouldn’t these be the top two?!
I was in the back center row of my friends wedding. She was so happy and beautiful and I was eager to see her make this wonderful leap into her new life. But, I missed more then half of what was said. Why you ask? Well peoples cell phones! I counted NINE cell phone interruptions during her ceremony. Here is what I heard and saw.
- Two women in front of me were taking pictures of the ceremony. That’s all awesome and good but I could hear the stupid “click” sound on the camera EVERY time they snapped a picture so I know they could hear it too. If it were me I would have turned the sound down after the first time but NO these two didn’t, they kept snapping. I sure wish I was as important as them to make the brides day all about me with my damn camera sounds. 2/9
- Two rows in front of me a lady’s phone rang (during the vows mind you). Most people would rush to turn it off and feel embarrassed. This woman, no lie, picked it up and looked at the caller ID and left it to ring a couple more times. She did finally turned it off, I guess when she was satisfied she could let it go to voice mail. 3/9
- To the left of me and not to far forward another woman was texting someone. The screen was bright white (hay it least turn the brightness down) but even more,TURN OFF YOU PHONE SOUND SO WE DON’T HAVE TO HEAR EACH TIME YOU SEND AND RECEIVE A TEXT! 4/9
- The rest 5-9 times I could not see but I could hear rings. It was so crazy. I missed my friends beautiful wedding because of inconsiderate self- absorbed and rude people. 9/9.
Wow, there you have it my WTFriday. I really am stunned that this kind of inconsideration keeps happening. I was so mad I missed my friends wedding because of these rude and self-absorbed people. It’s sad but I truly think that it is time to have every funeral director and wedding planner stand up and say first thing “please turn your cell phone sound off.” Even then I am sure some people will still interrupt!
Happy WTFriday all!
If you have a WTFriday to share I would love to hear it and share it!
