Shut ‘Em (Cell Phones) Off!

By Ken Tucci, WBZ-TV

As I wait in line at businesses or even drive on the road, people are too much into their cell phones anymore!  I think there should be a National Cell Phone Shut Off Day, to make people realize how life existed before cell phones.  – Robert, Littleton

Robert is not alone.  Last year the U.S. Dept. of Transportation sponsored a “National two-second turnoff day,” which encouraged young people to take 2-seconds and turn off their phones before driving.

And this guy in Texas thinks we should turn off our cell phones because the big, bad government might be tracking us.

I hate it when people pull out their phones in the middle of another conversation without so much as an “excuse me.”

What do you think your life would be like if you turned the darn thing off for just one day?  Would it be like going through caffeine withdrawal?
