Gadget obsession


E-gadgets are literally driving some people nuts, or what will you say about the man who went round and round on the footpath of Al Wahda Street yelling on his mobile phone, with his hands shaking up and down and in the process almost slapping a passerby.
This is not just to do with the handsets. The other day, I was walking along with a friend and tried to convince him that he should have a look at my blog at least once.
"What?" he said.
Surmising that he was eager to know more about the blog, I started explaining various subjects that had been touched. Nearly three minutes passed by. "So promise that you will have a look at the site," I concluded.
It was then that he removed his earplugs and replied: "Sorry, I was engrossed in that Bollywood song. What were you saying?"
I looked like a fool.

I was shopping and there was a man walking around in the store waving his hands and shouting in a foreign language. All customers and personal slowly moved away from him, keeping an eye on him just in case he'd do something, such as attack someone. We all thought he was either high on drugs or possibly psychotic and we started whispering about what we should do.

Then we realized that he was talking to someone on a cellphone using hands free.

I refuse to use hands free because of that, I don't want people to think I'm psychotic and I feel embarrassed as soon as my husband use his in public. Once day I'll tape a note to his back saying; "I'm not crazy, I'm on the phone".
