What's That On Your Ear?

There’s an epidemic that’s sweeping across the country. The cause is laziness and the desire to look like a moron.

Signs of the disease start with a few symptoms:

  • A startling growth protruding out of the ear.
  • A sudden urge to talk all the time.
  • An abundance of harsh stares.

What could this epidemic be? Is it a tumor growing out of someone’s head? I can hear Arnold Schwarzenegger screaming, “It’s not a tumor!” No, it’s a bio-electric nightmare known as a Bluetooth headset.

What is up with all the Bluetooth headsets that people are wearing? They talk on them everywhere, whether it is in the bathroom, lunchroom, or outside. A person that talks on the headset looks like a schizo as people all around wonder who the heck the person is talking to.

Are Bluetooth headsets that stylish? Wow, a person has eighty dollars on his ear! Congratulations! That person has earned the status of not being able to reach into his pocket like a normal person and answer the phone.

As you can tell, I dislike Bluetooth headsets. You may disagree with me, but at least I don’t look like a character from Star Trek when I talk on my phone.

  1. Nice post. 🙂 While it sometimes helps while driving, people use it even when they are relaxing. I guess they get used to it. But like Ronald pointed out, they keep looking at everyone while talking. Imaging having long hair and wearing this. No one will ever know you are talking on the bluetooth headset. Instead, depending on the location, you will either be thought of as a lunatic or as another strange person.

    Another Star Trek movie is in the works, by the way. They will have to come up with something better than a handsfree set this time. 😀
