Bad Moment with Bluetooth

Everyone hates the buffoons who walk around in public with the earpiece in their ear for no reason. I have a Bluetooth earpiece and I use it in the car or home/office so I can do other things while I’m on the phone…..especially useful for the annoying conference calls you aren’t paying any attention to and could care less about.

Every time I see a person walking around the mall, grocery store, or anywhere else with the earpiece for no reason first thought in my head: BUFFOON. Look how important I am…I have to be ready at a seconds notice to take a call. Thing is the people doing this never look the least bit important.

So where am I going with all this???? Why am I stating the obvious??? Isn’t this the kind of dissertation we expect from some hack like Ellen where every story is SOOOO clearly obvious where she is going with it?????

Well…..I had a bad moment yesterday. I was on a phone call IN MY CAR wearing my Bluetooth talking to a friend of mine just as I was pulling up to my destination. When I got there everything got very confusing with parking spots and what not…hung up with friend and went inside to do my thing. Was walking around….notice some people look at me but didn’t think anything of it…..then I see a neighbor….talked to the neighbor for a few minutes…small talk to be polite…don’t know her that well…..move on…..WAIT….what’s it that…..reach up…….OH NO….my headpiece. SHIT….FUCK…I forgot my headpiece. Wait….my neighbor….all these other people I see fairly regularly…..they all saw me with my headpiece on for no reason. They NOW think I’m a buffoon. OH GOD. HORRIBLE….HORRIBLE.

I’m not a buffoon……I’m extremely cool……I’m clueless, irresponsible and have no short term memory but I’m NOT a buffoon. I feel as if I should call the neighbor and explain to her the situation…..that I’m forgetful…not a loser. Then I’m thinking “clearly I can’t actually call her about this….then I’m basically George Costanza who sort of epitomizes buffoon and she’ll really think I am one”. And what about all those other people…I don’t care too much about their thoughts but still….they should know I’m cooler than them.

What a pickle I’ve created for myself here.
