    in this day and age, we seem to be surrounded by technology even in some of the most off-beat situations.... all too often, (and even more often now that we have things like smartphones, laptops and tablets,) i find myself growing increasingly annoyed at how horrible people's manners and common sense have become as they get lost in their cyber-life.... what thing about this new era of technology pisses you off the most? anyone have any strange or funny stories to share about it? have you ever been called out for bad 'tech-iquette' yourself?

    please share....

    Things that piss me off/annoy me:
    Texting while driving
    Texting while at the urinal
    Texting when eating with family
    Texting/using the phone at all during the movies (seriously, that bright screen stands out)
    Constantly texting while at work

    Probably more.

    Basically, more and more people annoy me/piss me off every day.

    texting while at the urinal???? sheesh.... i would rather wait till i was done taking a piss than run the risk of wetting myself over some shallow 160 character message.... that is just odd....

    Most annoyed when I'm talking to someone at work and their phone buzzes, they attend to that while "listening" to what I'm saying. Nowadays I just quit talking and tend to work or get up and leave the room.
