just because you can doesn’t mean you should

Wednesday. 03. 4. 2009.

There are a lot of things that we can do but we really need to learn some restrain.

It’s like what our parents told us about peeing outdoors. You can pee outdoors but it doesn’t mean you should do it everywhere. Unfortunately a lot of Europeans missed that memo.

This blog entry will be focusing on people who feel the need to have long, loud and unnecessary conversations in public.

Yes, the invention of the mobile phone has enabled us to stay in touch whenever and wherever. Like dude on Conan O’Brien pointed out, the telephone used to be stationary and attached to a wall.

BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD BE CALLING PEOPLE AND HAVING A CASUAL CHAT WITH THEM FROM JUST ANYWHERE!

Fredrik and I are on the train home from Gothenburg and the lady beside him whips out her cell phone and starts having an inain conversation with whoever. I don’t give a rats ass about her being unable to sleep.

Another example of taking the conversation home is this girl on her cell phone in the computer room when I was at Seneca. She started talking about how she has been having problems taking a crap. I DON’T NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THAT!

The worse bit about our train experience is there’s a woman with a crying baby nearby and she probably thinks we moved to another set of seats because of her baby. But reality is, we can’t stand the lady sitting beside Fredrik on her cell phone. I’m almost tempted to tell her why we moved because I don’t want her to feel like shit about her baby being upset on the train.

The baby being upset is somewhat uncontrollable. Talking loudly on your phone is controllable.

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.
