    Bah, I have no fashion sense whatsoever. I just go for stuff that never goes out of style - business suits, formal shirt and slacks, sweatshirt and jacket, T-shirt and jeans.

    I own a grand total of 3 pairs of shoes. In 2 countries. :lol:

    I hate those "Where you at dawg?" commerciels they really are dumb. In fact i hate how those gangsta rappers speak in the first place its butchered words in the english language. It makes you sound less intellegent and its corrupting black youth today. Beileve me... many black kids do NOT grow out of this crap. Its disgusting.

    Not really a fad but I cannot stand people who can't speak more than three words without using the word "LIKE".

    While we're on the subject of "annoying fads", what in Allah's name is this 10 character thing supposed to mean?

    There's a 10 character limit imposed here.

    Meaning you can't post anything with less than 10 chatacters in it.

    So peple often add XCL or something to that effect.

    Cell phones. I HATE those things. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be a fad. If they were, they'd go away after a while.

    Why people hate cell phones?

    Maybe some people use them too much and in the wrong places, but, for me it is much better that a land line phone. I don't spend much time at home, so for me it was a waste of money, since I hardly ever used it, so I cancelled my land line. It is much better to have a cell phone, so I am available 24/7. And I you don't want to be bothered, just turn it off.

    The problem is that noone EVER turns those damn things off.

    I remember one time in San Francisco, I was at a restaurant, when I happen to spot a young couple obviously on a date. They were making interesting conversation, flirting, laughing and what not. They obviously liked each other in a very friendly(;)) way. When all of a sudden, their cellphones go off almost simultaneously, so they both pause their date to yammer on their phones. AT THE SAME TIME!!!:mad:

    that whole scenario just kinda bugged me out.

    another example i've seen is obnoxious people using cellphones for dumb crap, such as talking to people who are at most 100 feet away from them.:shake:

    Cellphones are only an annoyance if it's being used in the wrong way. In some other situations it can be a lifesaver. Imagine an accident in the middle of nowhere with no land line phone in miles around. (Hopefully you get a signal though. Global roaming helps.)

    In my line of work it's already a necessity. It's the only way I can contact head office or the client I'm going to meet, while in a cab straight out of the train station, in a strange new city that I'm visiting for the first time in my life.
