Sorry to hear that. That's gotta be frustrating.

They must have heard that you're a slow mall-walker.

My disinterest in everything. New writing gig? Bored with it already, put off starting work on my piece due tomorrow until tomorrow. Awesome soft-syth I created? Sounds like shit the next day, in the bin. Girl I'm infatuated with? Could care less as soon as I get my rocks off.

God damn I am so unsatisfied.

People not using bluetooth technology and driving while talking with a hand held phone. Somewhat more dangerous are indviduals texting while driving.

Coworkers that ask you for something or do something and can't be bothered to expend half a breath telling you why as a courtesy.

Although I haven't paid close attention, haven't studies suggested that it's being on the phone and not the physical manipulation that's the biggest problem, such that switching to hands-free is only a little bit safer?

+1. I've heard this as well. Personally, I think if a call is that important then you should not be driving while having it.

True, but at least it's a little bit safer. They're more likely to be looking at the road instead of the phone and possibly have hands free to reach controls on the car (though most likely they will be reprioritized to coffee or something else).

Agreed. All else being equal, it seems pretty obvious two hands on the wheel are better than one.

Maybe, but how on Earth can you drive safely with your head scrunched against your shoulder, drinking a starbucks and driving with your knee. Damn those soccer moms.
