How to have a great moment killed...

This past Saturday was the first ever Bat Fest in Austin, Texas. I was there at the north end of the Congress Street bridge and people watching when, all of the sudden,

I saw a couple in a horse carriage coming down Congress they turned the corner at Cesar Chavez, I saw the man holding the gal's hands and looking into her eyes.....

the phone must have rang
because she turned and took one of his hands away from his and reached for the phone....

I was like "Don't do it",
but she did it and picked it up....

I was like "Ok...just put it down quickly",
but she looked to see who was calling...

I was like "Ok...put the phone away now and look back into that man's eyes",
but she answered the phone and talked to somone...

The guy looked crushed....
and like the gust of wind had just left him forever.

I felt like stopping that carriage and say...
move over to that gal...
and jump up with that man and gaze into his eyes!!!

She had no clue what she just missed out on.....


To all the clueless women, move on! There are plenty of clued in women who would gladly be in your spot!!!

To the guy who must have felt like he was made a spectacle of, my number is......

I had a girl friend once who worshipped her damn cell phone. You'd have thought she wa a heart surgeon on call the way she elevated the importance of that phone. It didn't matter who it was or what they wanted, if they were on the phone they had precedence over anything else she might have been doing with me. It drove me crazy and made me feel very unimportant.

The only way I could get back at her was to wait when it was her mother, and I'd go down on her with a vengence. She'd try to fight me off, but she only had one hand, since the other one held the holy CELL PHONE.... Man, that used to fluster her! heh, heh, heh!!

Since then, I have a rule that a woman has to agree to when we go out on a date: The cell phones go on silent for the entire evening, and unless it's some one calling from home (her child or the baby sitter maybe?) voice mail takes care of everything until we've parted company. If she can't agree to that one simple request, I spend my time with some one else, because I won't let a little piece of plastic and silicon be more important than me.

I'm usually very good about turning off my phone. However ...

... there was one Valentine's Day that was particularly memorable for all the wrong reasons. It hadn't been the best of years for my (then) wife and me but there was something very big going down at work and I had been told I had to be on call. So guess who's phone rang just as dinner arrived?

Not the best of Valentine's night's either ...

I always switch my phone to silent when I'm alone with my lover. With my hectic schedule and his obligations, NOTHING is that important. We might just be laying around on the couch watching tv, but the phone's not going to ring.

You shoulda jumped in that carriage, lol...

mtnravyn - 10 minutes??? I have a girlfriend that will talk for hours.... lol... BUT, I do know what you mean. Knowing that my friend talks for-ever, I would have never answered the phone.....and kept focusing on my dinner date... (had it been me!!! )

CookieLips2 - Oh, I have a cell phone... but, I do turn down the volume and avoid answering the phone -- unless it might be my daughter or it appears to be an emergency (they are calling me one call after another). I would never answer it while gazing into any guys eyes for sure though!!!

Rose I had a similar incident but it was at dinner. Wehad been dating several months and was at her house when the phone rang. It was a girlfriend and after 10 minutes I got up an left. Needless to say that ended that. She was great dance partner thoguh and I do miss that. I turn my phone off (cell) or ringer offand the voice mail volume all the way down. Whatever hapened to respect? Maybe we should ask Aretha

How Rude!!! See what technology has done for us? Do you ever think that when the person you are with answers their cell phone that obviously you, for the moment aren't just that important? Especially when the caller doesn't have a life and has nothing better to do. I see it all of the time. It is so much easier for us to communicate to each other over the phone than it is in person. Don't like the situation? Just hang up! Do I have a cell phone? Why?

DallasPhallus56 - This is oh so true... Nothing like even going to a friend's house to visit them, only to find that you are watching them have a conversation on the phone.... and you could probably have done better by watching a show on tv!!! lol...

Txrose, you've hit it precisely. What we want more than anything from our significant other is attention. When one of my friends is here, unless I'm expecting an urgent business call (and I tell her, or him for that matter; it doesn't have to be a sexual encounter) I will often just let the phone ring over to voice mail. Sometimes there are things more important than taking a phone call.
