Parade of the Obliviots

Describes this mornings commute; from the soccer moms in their Ford Explorers (yes there was more than one), to the dude in the work van who was more concerned with drinking his large cup of Dunkin' coffee than driving, to the Latina princess using her cell phone like a PA mike, and the guy napping as he drove in his generic Chevy sedan it seemed nobody was paying attention to what lane they were in, what lanes were open, their speed, or where anyone else was on the road. Days like today make telecommuting so very attractive.

And while I'm in rant mode, what is with people using their cell phones like old-fashioned radios by holding it front of their mouth to talk, then holding it to their ear to listen, then their mouth, then their ear ... ...? It strikes me as rather strange, inefficient, technically unsavvy behavior.
