The Crazy Suburban Mom: Stuff I don't get #1

Stuff I don't get #1

My phone rang yesterday in the grocery store and like a million times before I got a collective dirty look from all within earshot.

It's not that they were doing anything special it's just that most people seem to regard my ring tone as a hideous offensive awful. See, my phone rings. It sounds like a phone. A clanging old-time phone with a, you know, bell?

I can't wrap my mind around why my ringtone irritates people so. Plus....Not fifteen minutes before I got the canned food aisle glare-down ; the produce aisle was all a-giggle as another phone alerted with with a string of burps and farts the likes of which I haven't heard since my son's 11th birthday party...

Granted, that phone belonged to an 8 year old boy but that brings up another thing I don't get....

Why is it a good idea for an 8 year old boy to have access to ring tones?

I don't get it either. Why should a ringing phone in a noisy grocer's bother people? I'd much prefer to here your cut phone ring than one of the obnoxious phone co. ring tones.....or worse.... a screaming child that is sitting in a nasty dirty diaper but the mother will not go and change it. Ha!
Although I have one, I'm not a big fan of the cell phone. I do not answer it while I am busy, don't use it while driving, and if you call and leave a message it will be much later on my own good time that I will check out what you left. I refuse to be controlled. I look at the cell phone as a convenience; not a life line. But I sure would love to change my ring tone to a bell ring. :-)
Hope your weekend is beautiful

I have never got Crocs. Sorry if you own any but they just never did it for me and I refused to get them for my kids.

I like that ringtone, I have heard it before and thought it was clever. I also think burps and farts are funny. My ringtone is the ACDC song Have a Drink on Me, so I am definitely not the most mature person around.

I don't get text messaging. I think I'm too old to get into that. I don't plan on starting ever doing it.

I don't get anything about how women are treated when their pregnant by the medical community. IT'S NOT A DISEASE! Stop trying to "manage" something that happened perfectly for THOUSANDS of years before you came along.
I'm gonna stop now before I leave a mile long comment...this is my biggest beef with society.

I don't get lightning and thunder. No matter how many times I go over and over the scientific explanation, I just can't wrap my mind around clouds bumping into each other and...what? huh? can't be! but it IS, sigh...

Hi Tracy... I popped over from Harriet's

Just wanted to say that I don't get how a 10 year old has a $300 cell phone with all the bells and whistles... when I at 44 only have the freebie cheapo
