Retribution For Calling Other People "Assholes"

Recently I wrote about how I thought that certain people (not everyone) wore their Bluetooth ear pieces as status symbols. I may have referred to them as “assholes.” That was before I bought an ear piece of my own, because I can only tolerate talking on the phone in the car.

I have fallen in love with this thing. I wear it while I drive. I wear it while I cook. I have even worn it while taking a bath. (I would venture a guess that Motorola does not recommend that.) I love it so much so that my cell phone bill has quadrupled this month. Yes, quadrupled. I talked for 1285 minutes last month and according to my plan, that equals almost $300 in overages. Before I received my bill I was speaking with a customer service rep about my account. When I asked my balance, she actually said “are you ready?”

To balance my karma, I am publicly calling myself a “Bluetooth using asshole.” And to balance my check book, I am giving my phone and earpiece rebates right back to cingular, which I’m sure they anticipated all along.

Remind me to tell you how A. ran up his Cingular bill to over $1,000 and ended up only paying $160.

Are the first president of "Blue Tooth Anonymous"?

Hello, my name is Corey and I am a "blue tooth asshole".

Sorry - it just doesn't fit.

How's the karma-balancing coming along? Beetle-hood next time around?
