Be Cool while you annoy the crap out of people.
There is no escape. They are everywhere.
They’re waving their fingers in the air at imaginary people while fighting with their Boo. They are yelling at their Bank representative or making dinner reservations. They are talking dirty or reminding themselves to pick up dry-cleaning after work. They are buying stocks or figuring out where you be at, girl?
And they are doing it all on their cell phone, and could care less who hears it.
We’ve all been there. Trapped on a bus or subway while someone carries on a loud, broken english conversation apparently unaware that Mass Transit actually means…umm…Transit for the Masses. Is this a private bus? I wasn’t aware when I swiped my monthly pass. I also didn’t realize that the 10 Items or Less line has officially become 2011′s version of a phone booth, giving both the cashier and the customer cart blanche to text and talk while my freeze pops melt in my clenching paws.
Before I get all Grandpa crotchety on cell etiquette and those new fangled Internet Cafes, I’ll focus. This one isn’t about all that, even though I keep promising to one day write the best book ever, made up entirely of overheard cell conversations. Instant best seller, guaranteed. Even as an eBook that those young bucks can multi gesture through at the afore mentioned Cafes.
This is all about the Cool factor. If you insist on driving people nuts by yakking on your Android through the entire second floor of the Mall, then at least do it in style.
The YUBZ retro handset is living proof that everything old is new again. I don’t want to even hazard a guess as to how many cell users today have actually never gone old school with a corded receiver in their lifetime.
Simmer down, Gramps. But this thing is pretty cool, and actually more comfortable for the long calls then smashing some warm glass plating against your skull. YUBZ tosses a little “No Radiation” marketing into the mix as well, but the handset sells on Cool alone. Not getting brain cancer is probably a good selling point, but if my phone matches my outfit…even better. The handset comes in loads of colors, as well as a sleek Urban silver which gets my vote, and they all fit pretty much every cell out there, thanks to adaptors.
Even Lenny Kravitz has been photographed in the Village yakking away to his peeps on one. Like his music or not, he’s a cool dude.
Grab one of these bad boys and start working those calls like a Style Icon. You’ll still push me one notch below going full postal, but you’ll get props for your cellular accessorizing.
