More luddite stuff
One used to be able to donate one's old, used up cell phones to us at the library. Our "Friends" group turned this into a small amount of money. But for whatever reasons they decided to end the program. So someone printed up a flier explaining that one can no longer donate old cell phones here at the library. One of these fliers was sitting on a table back by one of the work computers. The flier read:
Cell phone domination ends.
And I thought "Yes! It is finally over!"
I hate trying to understand and type in the barcode number told to me by an English as a second language speaker as their crappy phone reception cuts in and out. I hate cell phone users yelling banalities into their phones in public places simply so the person on the other end can hear them clearly. And I hate and fear all the people on cell phones driving cars as they do, like they are seriously drunk.
Then, at second glance, the flier said:
Cell phone donation ends.
Ah well, I guess cell phones are fine outside of my few small complaints.
