When will I learn?

Somehow I need to get it through my thick skull that going grocery shopping on the Sunday of the weekend before classes start is not a good idea.

On a related note, it turns out that is possible to be more annoying that talking all the time on your cell phone in a public place: use your cell phone as a walkie talkie so everyone can hear both sides of your conversation.

Nextels aren't bad, if you're smart enough to set it up so that it goes through the earpiece and not the speaker. I know that a lot of emergency personel love Nextels because they operate just like the walkie-talkies they're used to.

That would be better. I'm not sure which is worse, the people on the walkie-talkies or the people that walk around with the earpieces and microphone, so it looks like they're having a conversation with the voices in their head.

The latter, because they say something and I either think they're talking to me or that they're nuts. If I ever get a cell and get a headset, it'll have a microphone thing that sticks out so that people can see that I'm talking on the phone rather than to someone who isn't there.
