Shut Up Already
After reading a story in the NYT, Jim’s wife Heidi came up with a method to fight back against the obnoxious cell phone users that we all have to deal with in stores, restaurants, trains and pretty much everywhere else. Can design ride to the rescue? Jim and the incomparable Aaron Draplin think it can. So, as a public service, we introduce the reasonably polite SHHH, the Society for HandHeld Hushing.

Personal note: While my voice does carry, I try to be courteous and not take calls in restaurants, movie theaters, etc. Some people obviously want the rest of the world to know what’s going on in their life. I’m not going to say that I’ve never been a contributor to the problem, since I have, but I’m at least very conscious of the fact and try my best to not be part of the problem.
This is a personal warning for you guys/gals that talk on your cell phone at work. Chat all you want, that’s your job on the line, not mine. But just know that armed with this note, we know where you sit and who’s baby you’re having.
