Today’s question is:
Is talking on the cell phone while running liken to running with someone and talking while running?
Background: Two days ago I dropped my middle daughter at her tutor and brought the other two buckets of joy to the park. As we were getting out of the car I saw a woman halfway through the park running toward us chatting away on her cell phone (rather loudly but I won’t go there). As she ran toward us the conversation continued, she even paused to say hello to us, and then ran off still talking on the phone.
So, I guess the talking on the cell phone while running question is getting a little old, maybe I just need to understand. Is it a replacement for running with a real person? Or could it simply be some people can not pass up a phone call, any phone call.
I guess the next big question I’ll have is “why would anyone answer the phone while using the public bathroom”. I’m sure those people are out there, I just can’t even imagine being one of them!
