Don’t get me wrong. I think Bluetooth headsets are very nice. They’re neat and sure beat out corded headsets. They make talking and driving more comfortable. However, I believe they should be used in the car, and that’s it. Or you use it in that certain one-off instance, such as a conference call, and are sitting somewhere by yourself.
I don’t think people should have them glued to their ears all day. If you aren’t a customer service rep, or work in a helpdesk, don’t wear a headset all day. There was a guy in my company once that used to wear his 8 hours a day, in the office, in meetings, etc. He would sit there in the meeting wearing it, blue light flashing. I see more and more people walking around, even in the office pantry getting coffee with other coworkers, with a headset on their ear.
Why? If you aren’t on the phone, stop wearing the headset. Are you worried about cell phone radiation? Buy a different phone. Or wear aluminum foil. But stop looking like a douchebag.
That’s right, I said it. It annoys me that much.
