Quote of the Day - I don't answer the phone. I get the feeling whenever I do that there will be someone on the other end.
Arrrgh. Cell phone police.
Court stories about cell phones abound. Like the judge who orders ringing cell phones to be dropped out his courtroom's fifth story window (without the offending owner, thankfully).
Or my personal favorite, the bailiff who took a ringing cell phone and couldn't figure out how to turn it off, so he answered it.
It was a man on the other end," the bailiff said. "It wasn't clear to me whether he was trying to complete a drug or a prostitution deal. I said, 'Can I tell her who's calling?' and he hung up." Yeah, I know the story would have been better if the guy had given the bailiff his name and phone number, but you can't have everything, can you?
Of course, then there's the a stun gun that masquerades as a cell phone, and another cell phone that fires a .22-caliber long-rifle bullet.
I don't advise trying to take those through security.
