lefthanded guitar Mobiles - no place at a festival (54* d) RE: Mobiles - no place at a festival 18 Aug 11

This year; I don't think I've had one meeting with a friend or friends where I have NOT been interrupted by their phone ringing or them making calls. One (who is a freelancer admittedly) just HAD to check to see what was happening with the business; one musician was repeatedly calling his wife to have her pick up some beer(since when did folkies morph into Archie Bunker with a droid) another had her single, employed and I assume otherwise grown 35 year old son (!!!!!!!) calling repeatedly during a concert we were attending b/c he just HAD to know if she had some spare eggs at home , it goes on and on.

What did everyone do before phones? Society didn't collapse, the business went on, the eggs got scrambled. Maybe I'm getting old and cranky (and I'm having a birthday this week, so lend me some slack ;)) ) but I wish that any and all people who are not emergency room doctors or Presidents of the Unitied States, would just SHUT THE D**N THINGS OFF!!!!
