    Don’t you just hate that obnoxious person on the phone in the line at the post office?

    April 9, 2008

    Yesterday I was stuck behind that guy who insisted on using the APC machine at the post office to purchase 7 stamps.  Which would have been fine if he had actually used the APC machine before or if he took 5 minutes to try to figure out how to buy a book of stamps.  Instead, it took him over 20 minutes to buy 7 individual stamps.  Because every single time he printed one up and had to start again, he forgot how to do it.  The machine needs one of those signs that says, “Not recommended for users with temporary amnesia.”

    If that wasn”t bad enough, there was that guy who insisted on yelling on the cell phone the entire time.

    “HI!!!   YEAH!!!!   YEAH!!!!  UH HUH!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    Here’s his picture. 

    Nate and his cell phone

    He takes it everywhere with him.  You know those kids with a blanket?  If only we could be so lucky.

      Hey at least he’ll talk on the phone. Mine jabbers like a monkey on crack until you put the phone up to his ear and then…nothing.

      Such a cutie!!!

      I saw a link to you on Jen Lemen…

      This is too funny! When my son was 11 months old, he carried a golf ball around with him for a month straight. Fortunately, he now has a blanket…three, actually. Heaven forbid we leave one behind. At least a blue tooth fits nicely in a pocket, around the ear, or in your diaper bag.

      oops…I now see that is a cell phone, not a blue tooth! 🙂

      Well just put a girlfriend on the other end of the line and that will cure his talk-arhea.

      Mine would throw the phone through the glass. Yours looks more house-broken.

      Um, where do I know that kid from? *thinking… post office? grocery store? passport line?*

      Oh, wait. No. That’s my son in six months. He also enjoys talking to his friends on the phone. Unfortunately, all of his friends have the same phone numbers as my clients in New York. (I am not in New York. I am in Canada.) He likes to remove his diaper and march around like Napoleon, barking incomprehensible orders into the phone. I think he’s buying and selling stocks.

      Then again, he might be calling your son.

      Probably not a good idea to let children use cell phones. A study in Britain a few years ago showed that their brain wave patterns were altered for about an hour after use, and nobody knows what that means.
