The Bluetooth Is NOT A Fashion Accessory

A quick, moslty useless thought for a Saturday morning:
I feel the need to point out that a Bluetooth device is not a fashion accessory. It is stunning to me how many people—mostly young men—walk around with them stuck in their ear despite the fact that they aren’t even using them.
Yes, I can see the value of hands-free communication while driving. I drive “hands free” all the time—that’s why God gave me knees.
Likewise, if your hands are full—say you’re carrying an icebox with a live human heart in one hand and a vial of toxic material in the other—then it is okay to use a Bluetooth.
But if these are the not conditions you find yourself in, then at no time, and not under any circumstance, should you be caught wearing such a device. Amen.
