On Cell Phones

“The worst thing about others blabbing on their cell phones – and the chief reason I don’t own one – is the despairing recognition that everybody’s doing, thinking, saying pretty much the same things you are, and none of it’s too interesting”

That’s main character Frank Bascombe in Richard Ford’s new book, The Lay of the Land


One response to “On Cell Phones

  1. Sadly true. A friend was sort of forced to eavesdrop in the checkout line at Target (I mean, the guy was standing right behind him) while this person fired someone over the phone. Very awkward. He wanted to deck the guy for firing his employee on the phone.
