I have a question.

Why is it that people on television and in movies never offer salutations to conclude their cell phone conversations? Is there some unwritten law that states all actors must suddenly end their calls by whipping their flip top phones shut? No, "see ya later." No, "buh bye." No, "alright, take it easy." Just flip. What gives?

duh...come on man. Obviously people in movies and on tv are way more important than the rest of us. They are leading exciting lives...jam packed with sex and violence and loads of cold cash. They are just plain too busy and ultimately too cool to bother with a common "good bye". That is why people like myself and the other regular readers of your blog pay good money to watch them on a regular basis.

come to think of it..people like myself and the regular readers of your blog spend quite a good deal of time and effort catching up on your life...which, by means of common deduction, would suggest that you in fact do the flip and run yourself. Correct me if I am wrong, mr. steve.

My phone doesn't even flip.

Along those lines, when someone on TV or the movies gets into a car and drives away it always happens super-fast.

I have timed just how quickly I can insert key, turn engine, engage gears and drive away. How do those movie people manage the same set of motions in fractions of time? HOW?

I'd like to know; if I could shave some time off my daily routine it could really help me out.

I had a friend that would NEVER say goodbye on the phone. I made it my mission to yell, "'BYE!!!" before he'd hang up, just to see if he'd catch on...to no avail.
