As you say VM MP3 players etc, shut out the outside world, but if you travelled on the buses that I travel on. At the times that I travel among the people I travel with, in the areas that I travel through, you wouldn't care if you shut the planet out. SB

I have to say John, that's not the fault of Mobile Phones, that's the ignorant Woppits who use them. My phone is in use most of the time I am on a bus and No-one else would know. It's easy to put a phone on silent profile. I get messages on my Blackberry whenever anyone posts on this forum. (in case we get a new member who may post improperly) I can sensor it immediately. When I am out in public my phone is on vibrate.
Anyone wishing to listen to music can use headphones, it's not rocket science. Unfortunately some people forget to take their brains with them when they go out. I hope you had a good day otherwise. SB

Morning Graham,
As you say it's not phones but the idiots that use them, apart from that I had a brilliant day and will post photos in a new album shortly.

I saw a cyclist the other day with mega earphones clamped to his head which I suppose were plugged into a MP3 or similar. He was in heavy traffic and was oblivious to any traffic that he couldn't see. It wouldn't have mattered if anyone had honked their horn to warn him of any danger. Because he wouldn't have heard it.

I've just seen a little girl about 5-6 with her mother (or big sister) wearing a pink shell suit, pink trainers, diamante framed sunglasses and talking on a mobile phone as they walked along the street--the mind boggles.

Is that normal for Brighton or have you relocated to Essex?


If I drank less I would have more money left over for buying wine.

There is nothing that has been said about Brighton, that worse hasn't been said about Birmingham by people from the South East.

The main trouble is that most of them saying it haven't been further north than Edgware. I once lived with a girl in New Cross in the 60's, whenever I asked her to come up to Birmingham we me she used to say "I'm not going to that dump" (did you ever see New Cross in the 60's). I finally talked her into coming up here for the weekend.

She was gobsmacked and thought it was great here, so green looking and clean. I had trouble in getting her to go back and we stayed for the week.

I had a laugh yesterday, here we have huge black bins in the streets for rubbish, mainly black bags, which are emptied twice a day.
This young girl came up to one strugging with 2 bags, tried to lift the lid about 3-4 times and failed, stood there for a moment pondering, and then,BRAINWAVE out came the mobile, a short while (1 minute0 another girl came and with no problem opened the hatch and in went the bags,
they must have been from a local business, but I wish I'd had a camcorder with me.
Probably rates pretty high on the" what's the strangest thing you've used a mobile for" list.

just as a matter of interest do businesses pay extra for this additional refuse collection service? In Brum all commercial premises have to pay extra for this service. Because the Council charge so much to provide the service a lot of firms use private collection firms.

Hello Phil,
These bins are for the use of people other than b usinesses, but they are abused left right and centre, they have solved a lot of the seagull problem,ie; bags being ripped open on the street, but as in any walk of life they
are open to abuse, and the biggest culprits are traders, I have seen tiles, broken glass, and all types of rubbish
put in them apart from normal household refuse.

Just being nosey, I thought if Brighton Council can do it then why can't Birmingham.
