Today’s Guardian handed over it’s second section totally to the phenomomenom that is the mobile phone. Full of fascinating facts about the number of mobile phones overtaking landlines internationally, that one person in six on the planet has one and that the British do a lot of texting (oh – you knew that).
But can anyone explain to me why when I went to the urinal after the film this evening, the guy next to me steps up to the urinal and before doing anything else, switches his phone on. Some things take precident to my mind! And don’t people panic that they may have missed a call. The credits had barely started rolling, when the tell-tale green and blue luminence began to appear throughout the auditorium.
