At the top of my 2005 “someone-invent-it-for-me-wishlist” is a portable, short-range cell phone jamming device. Oh the fun I’d have playing with the rude and the indecent.
What I really want to mention, though, is this…
In Northern VA, more and more businesses are posting signs I like. They tell people to keep their ringers off and phones stored away, or to stay out of the business.
But that’s not the real story.
I’m a huggy-feely guy who just happens to believe public cell phone users should have bamboo-shoots jammed under their fingernails. But just because I like the signs doesn’t mean anyone else gives a flying hoot.
Which is why I’ve been paying close attention. Lately, I’ve overheard 6 other customers in different businesses go out of their way to comment and thank the owners/managers for taking a stand. One said that, like me, they go out of their way to patronize those stores.
Sometimes little things count for a lot.
