What annoys you the most about cell phones?

What are your most annoying pet peeves about cell phones? Come here and let everyone know.

Mine are as follows;

1. People who talk on cell phones while I'm in the theater trying to watch a movie.

2. Dropped calls due to a signal loss in certain areas.

3. Cities, towns or states that don't offer coverage and you're stuck being unable to talk to friends and family.

4. Those aggravating and annoying phone cards that force you to keep on buying them to keep your service on, or you'll end up getting cut off in the middle of a conversation. I'll NEVER go back to that ever again!!!

5. Not being able to use the cell phone while on or in the subway.

People who SHOUT when they are on their phone in a restaurant, or doctor's office, or whereever - GO OUTSIDE!!!!!!!!

If you are known to be one of those people that can't drive and talk at the same time just pull off the road instead of going 20 mph or sitting through a green light because you are too busy talking!

That was another one!

If those drivers want to talk on cell phones while driving, then they don't need to be on the road!

Still another one - the latest craze, is sending text messages while driving!! Kids do this a lot!

People too busy yacking on the phone in the car and not moving when the light turns green.

People who talk on the phone through-out their whole work shift without getting anything done.

And as said above people who don't turn the idiot things off while at a movie theatre. It's getting too expensive to go see a movie when all you can hear on people's conversations on their cell phones. And why go to a good or decent restaurant if all you're going to do is talk on the darn thing. Really, you can't be enjoying the food, let alone behaving with courtesy towards your table companions when you're too busy carrying on a conversation with an unknown person on an 'idiot' phone. You'd be better off staying at home.

All of the above.

But my biggest beef with them here in the UK is the dang kids that walk around playing music on them! BLAH!

The people who walk down the street talking on them, paying no attention to who or what is around them and presuming that no one else on the street has anywhere to go other than them....

AND motorists who talk on cell phones (even head sets, sorry to say) while they are driving, paying only secondary attention, if that, to traffic. In Jersey City, even tho it's against the law to talk and drive, we even have bus drivers and cabbies who use their cell phones while they're transporting patrons.....
