The Relative Unimportance of Self-Importance

september 12, 2007

Mobile phones are a great invention.  It helps us keep in touch with people.  It helps us in emergencies.  But, it has also elevated a lot of people's sense of self-importance to insane levels.  If you yap on your mobile phone all day long, let me ask you, do you really need to talk on the phone while:

What the hell do people have so much to talk about?  What are you people "discussing" over the phone?  Have you ever just sat in a quiet room and reflected on your life?  Or do you need to fill in every single frakking second of silence with yapping? I just don't understand the Culture of Yap that we live in.
