Wearing your hands-free cell ear piece when you are not talking on the phone does not make you look like a cool cyborg from the future....
It makes you look like a dolt that wants people to think you work for the secret service. You're not THAT important, take off the effing ear piece.
People that freak out at the airport and get pissy because they have to take off their shoes for the security check need someone important in their life to die of a fatal disease.
Then they will know what you should really freak out over. Get over yourselves and take off your effing shoes.
It appears that the only person who did not know his wife worked for the CIA was me.
When you are talking on your cell phone magic happens.
Your voice gets transformed into an electronic signal by the mouthpiece. It is then sent, magically, through the air to a tower.
The tower then sends your voice across the world to the phone of the person you called. This person's phone then translates your voice back into an audible sound that replicates your voice.
Make sense? Good.
Now you know you don't have to YELL when you are talking on your cell in public. The person you're talking to is not on the other side of the airport with a hearing aid.
