Are you "Blue Light Special"?

Talking on your cell phone while driving was bad enough, but now we have a new plague of stupidity sweeping the nation…
 
I speak of bluetooth headsets.
 
What is the deal with some a**hole wearing a blinking blue earpiece all the time as if it’s Halloween and they’re dressing up as a Borg.  They have their place and I’m sure they’re convenient, but use them when you’re actually TALKING!  Use them when walking down the street, when you’re lost, or even in the car if you must…
 
But why stand in line at Wendy’s and order your food while wearing it?  I even saw one guy eat his food, all while the blinking blue light signaled how “Blue-Light Special” he was.  He needed a little more blinker-fluid, if you know what i mean.
 
Even when talking on them, choose the appropriate times!  There’s someone in front of you having a conversation, giving you money, finalizing an arms deal, or something else important.  Why does some jerk take priority just because they pressed a few buttons to talk to you?  The person in front of you deserves your attention, because you’re right in front of them!
 
Unless your wife is having a baby, or you’re Jack Bauer, then you can easily say “Hey, there’s someone in front of me that deserves my attention.  Let me call you back, Mr. President.”
 
Don’t you know that the blue blinking light can be easily spotted by a sniper at 1000 yards?
