Cell phone calls are usually private, but when done in a public place, phone calls can become a public problem. Inconsiderate cell phone jerks don’t know when to talk or shut up and these are the six worst places you’ll catch them talking on cell phones.
1. On the road
While driving, you’re likely to come across a jerk talking on their cell phone who values their cell phones calls more than their own life, or anyone else’s, for that matter. Whenever a driver does something that makes you angry, you can’t help but look back to see the jerk’s face and 8/10 the reckless jerk was likely talking on their cell phone. There’s something about cell phone calls that totally cripples the mind of a driver and you’ll hate to be stuck behind a cell phone jerk that’s more focused on making a phone call, than driving on the road.
Cell phones calls are strictly prohibited in hospitals, but inconsiderate cell phone jerks don’t mind risking the lives of every hospital patient to make cell phone calls or check their Facebook messages. Most modern hospitals have equipment that won’t malfunction because cell phone calls, but cell phone jerks don’t know nor care about this tidbit; the only thing that matters to them is talking on the phone, no matter the place or risk involved. The “no cell phone” warnings plastered all over the place make it clear that hospitals aren’t the place to talk on cell phones, but cell phone jerks don’t care about the worst case scenario, to them, anytime or place is a good one to accept or make cell phone calls.
3. The movies
The cell phone jerk at the movies is the worst. The high cost of movie tickets, crowded parking, tight seating, and inflated concession stand prices make going to the movies a bummer, but the worst part of going to the movies is cell phone jerks that won’t stop talking and making cell phone calls while you’re trying to enjoy a good movie. The movie theatre should be a place where all cell phone signals are immediately dropped and talking on the cell phone will result in a permanent ban or being seated in the worst area of the theatre.
4. While flying
Before an airplane takes off, a cheesy stewardess lays down a few simple ground rules; the simplest of all being “no cell phones until the airplane reaches 10,000 feet.” No cell phones for a few minutes is the worst news a jerk with a cell phone can hear and even though airplanes are the worst place to mess with the rules, jerks will make cell phone calls anyway. Cell phone calls can mess with the airplane’s navigation system, and though it’s rare, talking on cell phones can lead to airplane crashes; making a cell phone calls the worst idea imaginable in a place where being killed is the worst case scenario – unless you’re a cell phone jerk.
5. The library
The worst and most annoying thing that can interrupt your last minute studies for finals is some jerk talking nonsense on their cell phone. Talking is prohibited in libraries and cell phones aren’t allowed so not talking on cell phones should be a no brainer, even for cell phone jerks with no brains in a place like the library. Cell phone calls at the local library can be the worst interruption to your focused reading due to the otherwise complete silence, that helps carry the annoying cell phone conversation throughout the entire place.
Jesus may be on the main line, but that doesn’t mean that cell phone calls are the best way to reach him. There aren’t any rules against talking on cell phones in the Bible, but if cell phones were invented back then, the Bible would state that interrupting church service with constant cell phone calls would land you in the worst place imaginable (eternal damnation). It takes a very special kind of inconsiderate jerk to think making personal calls during church service is acceptable and church may be the worst place to be a cell phone jerk because “you know who” is watching.
