It’s not the cell phone user, it’s you 

It’s entertaining at the gym to listen to people complain about other gym goers. A frequent complaint is cell phone use.

 If I am on my phone during sets people feel justified to bitch and complain and be rude.

If I’m staring at the wall, people are polite if they approach me at all. I can stare for 10 minutes and nothing, but if I pick up the phone for 30 seconds all hell breaks loose.

There are countless ways to pass time, and yet one way evokes vindictive vigilantism. While all others go unnoticed.

How many things in your life, that upset you, are similarly silly?
