Blue Light Special

I can’t tell if people are talking to me, themselves or to someone on their bluetooth headpiece. Sometimes I’m looking right at someone, talking to them, and I think they’re answering me, then they give me the “hold on” signal with their hands. What do I have to do to talk to them, call them?

And why are these funky blue lights flashing on these devices! Is something on sale? “Attention all shoppers, Toasters Ovens are now $19.99 in aisle 6. Irv, there’s a cleanup in Automotive.” Can someone turn those lights down? If you see one of those headsets in the dark it’ll scare you. You ever drive home at night and see someone wearing one of those out of the corner of your eye? That’ll wake you up real quick. Looks just like police lights!

What’s the deal with wearing one of those headpieces all day long? You sure don’t look like a cyborg. I say Bluetooth headpieces are the 80’s Power-Ties of today. Yup. In the 80’s the business status symbol was the striped power tie and suspenders (if you were new to the craze you wore a belt, too). Today it’s the Treo and the bluetooth headpiece. The more things change, the more they stay the same. That’s my opinion.
