    Is it just me, or have cell phones made people even more rude than they were 10 years ago?
    No, I totally agree with you. I have a cell phone myself, but I still don't like them. I keep mine off while at the library, in class, and at the movies. Don't people realize that we can all hear their conversations? Also, while people may claim that they need the cell phone on at all times "in case of an emergency," I have yet to accidentally overhear a cell conversation about a life-and-death emergency. I remember back in the "old days" where if a child/parent/spouse/friend needed to reach someone at work, they would call the work number, and would be put through. There is no excuse for a doctor to answer his/her cell during a physical examination. For many centuries, doctors were somehow able to survive without answering cell phones during exams, so why can't they now?
