Shouting Match

For all the ease that the cell phone has brought into our lives and all the escapism it's stolen from us there is one thing that cannot be argued about regarding our cell phone culture -- it is hilarious to hear couples get into fights over their cell phones. Tonight on my walk home from work I was about 15 feet behind a woman who was on the aggressive end of an argument about her partner's failure to place a conscious call saying he'd be late on arrival. I could have been 50 feet behind her and still heard the details of the argument. I don't know what he was saying, but it couldn't have been much since she never let up. Not long ago someone walking down the street yelling like that would have been considered crazy. But thanks to cell phones they're crazy in a totally different context.
