Miscellaneous Musing by Judy @ 5:09 PM

When at work, I park in a big, multi-story lot — the kind where you drive up an endless oval ramp in search of a place to slot your vehicle. Some of the turns are tight.

Yesterday I followed a guy in a brand new Audi A6 up the ramp. The whole way he had a cell phone stuck in his ear. Since he was holding the phone with one hand and steering with the other hand, he had a bit of trouble making some of those turns. He kept slowing to a stop. He was laughing as he finally parked. I wasn’t amused.

Now, maybe it’s just me… but shouldn’t a car that costs somewhere around $45K have a hands-free option?

    • I am happy to engage in discussion with those who accept that technology and affluence are a net plus, but who worry about their troubling side effects. Spare me, however, the sensitive souls who deplore technological advance and economic growth over their cell phones on their way to the airport.
