Cell Phone Courtesy Month

“Cell phones were invented to make our lives easier, not more annoying”

We couldn’t let the month pass without bringing attention to a very important cause – Cell Phone Courtesy – because L-rd knows there sure is a lack of common courtesy from cell phone users throughout this country!
