shoving your phone in my face

As noted in a previous post, phones today hold a ton of music.
This is creating a new trend – one that I can’t fucking stand.
You come up to the booth and just shove your phone/ipod/walkman in my face.
You don’t say anything, you just expect me to play the song on your phone.
If I say I don’t have it (ie – I don’t want to play it) you hand me your phone and expect me to plug it into the mixer.
It doesn’t work like that for so many reasons that I won’t even get into it.
Then there’s other people who write their requests on their phone’s notepad app thing.
They shove their phone in my face and want me to read it.
As much as I don’t want to talk to you, I really don’t want to have to read shit off your phone.
So, unless you are Helen Keller, please use your words.

    I’ve done this many a time: I grab the phone and type “NO”. This actually has gotten a few laughs, but it’s only funny if it’s an iPhone since I can’t operate or really tolerate a fucking Blackberry.

    This is one post I disagree with. If I have to hear your request, writing it down on a napkin or a phone where i just read it and you dont say a word to me is the quickest most painless way to do it. I want to interact with you as little as possible so I can get back to doing my job. Not requesting anything at all is preferred, but if you are gonna do it, do it this way.

    Holy shit i, love your blog/ point of view but, maybe because where i’m living,in Reykjavik, people aren’t doing this yet and as much as i love you bitching about it, i hope to fucking god this trend does not spread because i think i might have to buy a pistol! xo
