    HA HA HA. I can’t wait to show it to my students!!!!
    For the record, my cell phone went off last week in my class. How embarrassing.

    I love this video too. Still to this day I am surprised how many times people don’t simply turn their phones on vibrate, or off. In fact i just did walking into the libray here at Baker, my gf’s school. Whether one is at the movies, church – funeral – wedding, a meeting for work, or at the most obvious, in a school classroom, don’t they realize how rude they are in their halfass manner. How hard is it to remember these simple things. I think some people just don’t care. If I was a teacher it would drive me up the wall. Maybe there should be classes on cell phone use, not that the offenders would ever attend.

    I’ve had students point-blank tell me that they had things that were just “too important” in their lives to turn their cell phones off. I tend to ask if they or their partner is about to give birth; the answer tends to be no.

    The way I figure it, if you don’t have two or three hours to sit through a class (or a movie or a play or whatever) with your cell phone off, then you probably don’t have enough time to go to school.
