As I make my coffee this morning and was looking out my kitchen window sizing up the weather for the day, I see the garbage truck and the men who collect it. It seems one is new and is putting on the tee shirt with the big orange X on it. The men seem to be talking and then one of them gets back into the truck. The other guy starts to walk towards my garbage can and stops. He is fiddeling with something and I realize he is on his cell phone texting. REALLY… he puts his gloved back on and walked over to my can stops again and takes out his cell and off comes the gloves and he texts again. WOW…
I was waiting to see the man in the truck come out and tell the guy, hey, no texting while on the job. But no, that didn’t happen. I am sure there must be some rules on this and if not I definately think there should be.
It seems to me that the cell phone has become part of our society and it is becoming acceptable to have it on and use it all the time, while at work, at dinner, while driving, etc. I wonder if people wake in the night to text? Is it just me or do we need lessons on the etiquette of when it is not a good idea to pull out your cell phone.
Just my opinion and as anyone knows when listening to my show, Everyone is entitlede to MY opinion.
