I hope you all don’t mind me straying from football talk but I just can’t bring myself to write anything else about the CBA. I’m going to be a true Brat about this one … I don’t want to talk about the CBA, or hear about it, until we have actual NEW information on what is happening. I am beginning to tire of the rumored news and speculation.
So, as I wait (with bated breath) for this Friday evening to arrive – I would like to share something that I find interesting.
I was riding the train this weekend and was very confused by the comfort level felt by my fellow passengers, to chat loudly on their cell phones. I don’t ride the train that often, but, isn’t there a rule about that? Should there be a rule about that? I’m not an expert on what’s appropriate in these situations but my first instinct is that it’s a tad disrespectful to be conducting long, personal conversations in a public setting. Especially a public setting in which people are trapped in a small space and can’t avoid hearing your personal dilemmas.
On Sunday, I saw this article from GOOD.com, touching on the social appropriateness of public chatting and the forever-looming question of health risks. It’s something to think about. And if you watch Mad Men you’ll appreciate the comparison that GOOD makes.
