Cell Phones in the Wrong Places
It never fails, I'm in class every other day and some one's phone goes off in the middle of class. What's more is that now a days, instructors don't do much about it. This semester, however, is a different story. I have 2 instructors that will deduct attendance points or give failing grades on a test if your phone goes off in class or during a test. Halla-frickin'-lujah, it's about time some accountability took place over this inexcusable behavior! Same goes for movie theaters, you see on the screen just before the movie starts as a reminders for people to turn off their phones, yet what happens during the movie? Some idiot's phone goes off. It happened to me not even a few weeks ago in the theater when some jackass didn't turn off his phone and it went off. I just can't believe that people have such a selfish need to interfere with everyone else's good time or whatever, just so they can stay in touch with someone. This goes for you text messengers too, I hope you get carpal tunnel syndrome if you do that in class or in a theater.
