The conspiracy of the blue-tooth idiocy

Have you ever seen those people who use those blue-tooth enabled cell phones with the headsets? You know, the kind that always seem to be talking to themselves while being totally oblivious to the world around them? They always seem to look like a bunch of freaked out space cadets, gesticulating around while seemingly talking loudly to no one in particular, until you finally notice that tiny earpiece in one ear. It is only then you realize that they are only just as oblivious to the world around them as any other cell phone user, which happens to include 99.9% of everyone else in the world.
It dawned on me that this is a conspiracy spawned of the collective Borg consciousness that happens to be composed of corporate America. This is technology run amok and taking over our lives. People who use these devices always seem to be connected to the collective corporate hive mind that apparently has taken over this country and erased our free will. Now, we can no longer be out of reach of the Queen bosses that delude themselves into thinking that these devices do anything but make our lives even more miserable. We have no free time and are always on call to them. Sometimes, it is just better to just disconnect, even for just a little while.
It was just the other day when I was listening to the radio when this comic came on and started talking about her experience with another person who was using blue-tooth. She evidently thought that this other person and her were having a conversation. She thought he was talking to her and apparently, without knowing what was going on, she was answering back and it was only after that she noticed the blue-tooth earpiece. And when she stopped talking, he kept right on going like nothing happened.
What really draws my ire is when these are used while driving a car. These people actually think that they drive safer when they use these headsets!? Hello!!!!!! It does not matter how many hands are on the wheel when it is inattention to the road ahead of them that always causes the problems, not where their hand and eyes are. These people can't even walk straight! They can be looking right at you and not even see you! They will walk blindly right into you and not even see you until after they hit you. And they think that they can drive straight when using these things? A few words on that: I DON'T THINK SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are right. Bluetooth headsets or wired ones, these people do not see whats going on in front of them. They get lost in their own world.

Some people always seem so addicted to connecting to other people that they forget to get in touch with the immediate world around them.

Thank you! Hilariously written!

I JUST last night took up, again, the Power of Now... I'm choosing to live even more powerfully in my Now moments... so I suppose no blue thingys for me... ;-)

Blessings and keep up the great writing!
