Like any person, I have a certain amount of pet peeves — things that push my ‘angry’ button. As one of the charter members of the BlackBerry Nation, many of my pet peeves revolve around people using their smartphone in a way that might get someone killed. For example, take the Neanderthal above, gunning along at a nice 75 mph, all the while fully reading his BlackBerry with a hand that should be on the steering wheel. So engrossed was he in his BlackBerry, that the ghost of Richard Pryor could have jumped in front of his windshield and he wouldn’t have noticed.
Kids: don’t try this at home (or in the car). Otherwise, not even the BlackBerry Helmet will save you.
