I am obsessed with bluetooth earpieces (in a good way). I know what you are thinking. They are so amazing, how could it be rude? Well, I would say that the following situations would constitute the top 6 most rude bluetooth offenses:

1. On a date (at any point)
2. While running a half marathon in Central Park (I'm not naming names)
3. In a meeting (unless you are trying to make a point)
4. During your wedding, a religious ceremony or any sort of knighting
5. On the beach or at a pool because it is disruptive and I'm sure that you could electrocute something with the blue glow
6. During a movie - even if you are not talking, the pulsating light is glowing

Jury Puzzled by Sudoku

A drug trial in Australia was abruptly ended because jurors admitted to playing too much sudoku during the trial. The trial cost taxpayers almost $1MM and the defendants could have faced life sentences. A juror claimed that the game "kept her mind busy." How rude!

Tainted Tomatoes

Apparently the bad tomatoes have made it into my neighborhood. How rude! Such an enjoyable summer staple ruined by samonellosis. Yes, that's right.

Father's Day Flowers?

This arrangement offends me. How rude.

Running for the Hills

I am all about contextual advertising but this is rude. I simply opened an email from New York Road Runners and was shocked to read these *ads. Between the runner's diarrhea tip and the liposuction deal, they've got me covered. How rude!

*Of course now I must consider that the same technology is fueling my measly advertising. I apologize in advance for any inappropriate text ads you may see as a result of this post.

Who CAN You Blame for Your Decorating Shortcomings?

Thanks to Stephen for pointing out that this advertising campaign from BoConcept, though mildly amusing, is pretty rude. The store happens to be across the street from me. I guess that I'm growing numb to the in-your-face rudeness. I took this photo as I walked home last night. And I have to admit that my bed is from BoConcept. I never thought about blaming them for anything. How Rude!
