    This just happened to me like an hour ago!! It was so crowded I so didn't want to whip out my iPad ~ just seems so.....stuck up rich bitch? For lack of a better word. lol! I had to have sushi ~ and I had to do some research.

    Within 10 min, and I knew they were going to come over to my table, cuz I heard them ~ three guys popped over to check it out! Then ~ the lady across from them also decided to join.

    OMG. Just.shoot.me. I wished I had a handful of people from here in my purse to help me answer all their questions!

    But ~ they paid for my lunch.:D

    Cool. I usually don't mind showing it off and answering questions. I'm a techie anyway. Sometimes I think I would work well in an Apple Store because I love yakkin' tech, the iPad and helping folks. That might be fun, given my knowledge and customer service skills plus love of tech. But those stores, as nice as they may be, are noisy environments (on a level not unlike many busy fast food restaurants) and that won't go so well with my hearing impairment.

    Of course I still get the "Is that a Kindle?", "But where's your mouse?", and "Is that some new phone?" questions. No it's not a Kindle. There isn't a mouse-it doesn't use one. Yep, it's the latest in smartphones. Here, put it up to your head like this when you want to make a call...

    The best one was from a guy who I let handle my iPad: "Can you print with this?". In a manner of speaking, yes. There are limitations, of course. "Oh. But...." turning the iPad around and around, scanning along the edges furtively, "...where does the paper come out?"

    There are times when a facepalm just isn't good enough.

    I hate it when you put them in the trunk of your car, they wont stop screaming, punching, and spitting. It ruins the whole experience. Hobos can be so difficult at time.

    I don't mind the looks and questions. Actually I enjoy it. I've always been the go-to person for tech among my family and friends so I'm used to it!

    The chemicals in a diet soda interact with the transfat in the burger,bun and fries and turn into a carcinogen that has been proven to cause brain cancer in both rats and humans. This isn't one of those " rat ate the equivalent of 100 burgers per hour" studies either.

    But you forget to mention that those burger eating rats were previously tested for problems with alcohol and tobacco and they were sleep deprived so their bodies were worn out.

    Did you know that everyone that has ever eaten Cauliflower or will ever eat cauliflower will die or has already died? Don't need no rats to prove that the vegetable kills.

    I say once you try one of my sirloin burgers with peppers and onions, with homemade sweet potato fries and home, made root-beer, you won't give a dying lab rats arse about the dying rats.

    :D:D Bob :D :D

    American bacon. Seriously - what the hell is that stuff really? I'm pretty sure it hasn't been near a pig in the last decade... If ever.

    People who insist on using text speak and no punctuation in text messages. I've actually stopped dating someone because it irritated me so much, I ended up spending more time trying to decipher the nonsense they'd written than it took to write a reply. There isn't really a character limit anymore, and pretty much everyone here has unlimited texts.. Just write the bloody thing properly.
