I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?
Here goes blog quote #231...
"Unless your a doctor, ain't nothing that important they can't wait to call you about later. How many 19 yr old kids got something really important happening? We've had beepers go off in the middle of meetings right before the game."
-Charles Barkley, in 1997-
UUGGH. Another pet peeve of mine. Back a few years it was beepers and pagers. Today its cell phones. When first reading this, did anyone think of an obnoxious cell phone that can't ever be turned off due to the risk of missing an "important call"? I'm sorry, but unless your wife is about to give birth, or a major deal is about to go down, most cell phones can be shut off and given a breather.
If someone really needs to get you, they'll track you down. And most of the time, it's about one-tenth of an emergency. Cell phones have their place and importance in life. And so does turning them off.
That's my view....... What Say You?
