they were actually talking on their bluetooth?!?!!? Haha, that’s happened to me a few times. But one instance that gets me is when my brother worked at a carwash a few years back & he was telling me about this guy sitting next to him on the bench waiting on his car to get washed…the guy apparently had a blue tooth in the opposite ear and was talking on the phone, but my brother thought he was talking to him!
The guy was like “So, how was your day?” My brother was going along with it saying stuff like “Oh, you know…it’s good…it’s kinda hot out here today.” And the guy kept asking general questions and my brother kept answering THE WHOLE TIME. And the guy finally goes “Okay well I’ll talk to you tomorrow then!” And my brother goes “What?!” Haha…needless to say, my brother felt like an idiot & got up and walked around the corner!
I love it! Those bluetooth’s crack me up!

That is HILARIOUS! I’ve had that happen a few times…once, I also was sitting in a bathroom stall and the lady next to me was like “Oh, hey, how are you?!” Turns out her phone had been buzzing when I came out, but I seriously thought she was talking to me at first, I (fortunately) was too chicken to respond.
Edit: I also rarely use my bluetooth when I’m out – the only time I use it when I’m out is if I’m driving (alone), usually I just use it so that I can do laundry or work in my at-home-office hands free.

Lol! That happens to me sometimes with FFIL – he’ll walk into a room and be really quiet for about two minutes, and then ask a question into his blue tooth, but of course I can’t see it. It’s so irritating!

Haha those things drive me crazy! Especially the people who talk on them and go up to a cashier. I think talking on the phone with a cashier is rude to begin with.

I hate blue tooth! I worked at a bank for 3 years in the drive thru and people would always have them in and I couldn’t see them so they would start talking and I wouldn’t have a clue that it wasn’t to me. It also sucked because they would be having a conversation with someone else when I needed to be talking to them about something related to their account. Of course, that frustrated me with any type of cell phone, not just blue tooth. As a result, I would sometimes just start talking about their account and they quickly realized that if they didn’t what xyz on the phone to hear their business then they needed to hang up.

I did the same thing as your brother. I was in a lineup at Tim Hortons, and the guy behind me starts talking….
Blue tooth guy: Hi!
BTG: How’s it going?
M: Not bad, you?
BTG: good, good….
M: That’s good
BTG: BIG dirty look in my direction and points at his ear.

Bluetooth drives me crazy too! Especially when I see people talking on them when they are shopping. I often wonder “Is your life really that busy that you can’t talk to them when you get home?”. I understand using it while driving but come on be a little more polite! But this is coming from a person who rarely has leisurely public phone calls so what do I know. 😉

@hrev: I agree with you! I rarely take phone calls while I’m out & about. I agree that while you’re in the car is one thing…but out in public I normally don’t unless it’s a few minute conversation & I usually sit down or get out of peoples way. Most of the time I text…& when I’m in my car I can’t text so that’s why I talk! 🙂

I think it looks funny when people are talking on it in their cars, they just look like they are talking to themselves! People can be pretty obnoxious on them in like the grocery store and stuff, they seem to talk louder when on the headsets.

@alisha: I agree that they do talk louder when they’re on their headsets! I’ve seriously seen some crazy people talk to themselves sometimes, and they won’t be just thinking out loud…they’re seriously TALKING to themselves with no phone! So sometimes I think people are crazy, but usually I look for the phone now 🙂

Hahaha I have a great story!
I was working at a Jamba Juice and a lady comes in.
Me: Hello… how are you? Welcome to Jamba Juice.
Her: Unintelligable Mumbling..
Me: (I walk away from the counter to where she is looking up at the Menu) Do you have any questions on the menu want any suggestions?
Her: I don’t fucking know!! I mean seriously back the fuck off..
Me: Uh… Ok sorry…
Her: Well I said I didn’t fucking know.. jesus…
(This whole time she is not even looking at me)
Me: Well take your time…
Her: Hmmm what? Oh no not you dear.. I am on the phone with my bastard husband.
(She lifts her hair away.. and points to her ear.)
I mean seriously she was screaming at him.. So freaky.

Wow, yeah I’ve had that happen before. i usually just look at them and don’t say anything to be sure they are talking to me. Its so annoying, and makes you look like your crazy…talking to yourself

Ugh i hate bluetooths. Hate them. People missed the memo that you a) look crazy and b) look obsessed with your phone if you just walk around with it in all the time, waiting for it to ring….
I don’t even walk inside a restaurant until i hang up my phone or step up to the counter. It’s SO rude!
