Your having an awkward conversation with some stranger in a crowded restaurant when they look at you strangely. Only then do you realize they've been talking on their blue-tooth to some one else entirely?
How about sitting at home while your wife is on the computer. Half an hour into the conversation she has been having, you realize she is not on VOIP to her mother, but has been talking to you, and wants you to answer her.
How about your boyfriend threatens to break up with you because you don't pay him any attention, and your not sure if he's talking to you or to some girl on his I-phone.
I have a simple solution. I want it to go viral. I want it to work.
When you have a conversation with someone face to face, you start the conversation with "Hello."
When you have a conversation with someone electronically, you start the conversation with "T'ello".
Maybe then we can tell who the @#$@#%% your talking to people.
Now cut and paste this, and email it off to everyone on you email list, or face tremendous bad luck.
John Smythe didn't send this to all his friends, and he ended up being arrested for propositioning Senator Jim Silliman in a mens restroom. John Smythe walked into a bathroom stall when the Senator in stall next to him started a conversation. Being polite, Mr. Smythe responded. How did Mr. Smyth know that the Senator was talking to lobbyists. All that "Wash my back and I'll rub yours" chatting was just taken he wrong way.
Rebecca Lynstrom Hives didn't forward this plan to her friends, and while discussing "Desparate Housewives the DVD Game" with her best friend Patsy, apparently became engaged to her cab driver. You don't become unengaged from a Lithuanian cab driver with connections to the Pan-Slavic underworld.
So, pass this around. T'ello and Hello as the need arises.

I was in the bathroom once, and the guy at the urinal next to me suddenly said "So, you coming to that party tomorrow night?" I was like "uh...." and eventually realized he was on bluetooth.
