    There is so much cell phone abuse in the world today.
    Some people have their phones to the ear constantly while totally oblivious to the real world.

    Recently at a quiet restaurant, a woman at the neighboring table took a call. First of all, her ringing must have set to the loudest level possible. The ringing startled many people.
    She proceeded to talk and talk about her visit to a doctor and she went on and on with the gory details of an outpatient procedure she had done the previous day. (yeah, I know allllllllllll the details of that doctor’s appointment, not by choice)
    She paid no attention to the very disturbed patrons who were glaring at her.

    I wish there was a cell phone etiquette test people would have to pass before owning a cell phone. :)
    Cell phone rudeness, be it talking or texting has gotten out of control.
