Please Turn Your Cell Phone Off When Terrell Owens Is Speaking
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens was addressing reporters after Sunday's game when someone's phone started ringing. He didn't seem to like it.
As the video above shows, when Owens heard the ring he turned to his left, glared at the unseen holder of the phone, and said, "Pardon you." He seemed quite offended that someone would interrupt him.
There was a time, maybe 10 years ago, when I felt the same as Owens: It drove me nuts when people's phones would start to ring at inopportune times. But now I actually think our society has changed to the point where Owens is overreacting here.
Yes, the guy should have turned his ringer off before the press conference, but in a world where cell phones are ubiquitous, we all just have to do our best to ignore such things. Owens decided to draw more attention to it than he needed to.
