Cell Phone Etiquette and the Bluetooth Banana

This day and age, most of us can receive a phone call almost anywhere in the world. We can stay in constant state of being “call ready”, but do we really want to look like it? Case in point – a Bluetooth earpiece.

You’ve got to admit, there’s something strange about speaking to a person who has this banana shaped device stuck in their ear.

Aside from the obvious piece of plastic and the streaming blue light radiating from the side of their head, I’m mostly unsettled about the message it sends. Is the thought of missing a call that bothersome? Is the person in front of you unworthy of your undivided attention?

Well, that's the assumed message. So I ask, why create a self imposed communication barrier? Life is hard enough. Don’t make it harder, take the banana out of your ear.
