Cell Phone Walkers

I have been observing cell phone users – and who hasn’t? But this is only the beginning… I have a long list of cell phone burtches and kvetch’s. There are a million cell phone stories in the big city and this is just one of them.

Have you ever watched someone talking on a cell phone? I mean really watched. They don’t stand still! Well, some do but most just walk as they talk with that determined “get out of my way” look. Many pace back and forth in a predefined “land grab” of their own – oblivious to the world around them. And some even walk in circles, reversing their direction like clockwork.

Stay clear – which is hard to do – because these people haven’t filed a flight plan. They pace back and forth and side to side. And watch out for that empty hand of theirs, it could suddenly shoot out and up with no warning as they try to emphasize something to the recipient on the other end.

So pacers, circlers and walkers why not try sitting down, standing against a wall or leaning against a post and carry on your conversation out of harms way?
