I think I’ve discovered a new game while at work or out shopping. Washington recently made talking on a cell phone without a hands-free set illegal, and actually a primary offense, so cops can now pull you over just for seeing you holding a cell phone to your head, whereas for the last year they’ve had to come up with something else you’re doing wrong in order to nab you for the cell phone violation.
Bluetooth headsets have suddenly become very popular. People are actually using them. And, more importantly for this game, being too lazy (I’m guilty of it too) to turn off and remove the bluetooth when exiting the car, and just wearing it into a store instead. Thus, the game. You see somebody standing there, talking. Are they crazy, off their meds, and talking to themselves? Are they talking to you? (That’s especially fun, when you work at a store and can’t tell if the customer is talking at you or on their headset) Or, option number three, are they using their bluetooth? Guessing game time! It’s going to be interesting!
On a somewhat sad note, I am now officially pet-free. I’ve had one black skirt tetra (fish) hanging on, and it has survived a lot of tank disruptions that killed off lesser fish, and it finally decided it had had enough today. Time to dismantle and store the tank for the time being, and see if I can manage to keep my plants alive!
