    The thing about the cell phones is right on the money. The bottom line here is that phones make people oblivious to anything else around them ... they are concentrating on their conversation. This is also why it is dangerous, hands-free or not, to drive while talking on one. Businesses and public areas need to re-institute the phone booth ... but in this case you can take your call into private, where it belongs.

    To keep my sanity, I listen to music with earphones on to drown out any annoying noises at work.
