Dear All People Who Signed Up For Oprah’s “No Phone Zone” Pledge,
I don’t believe you.
Over 120,000 people have taken Oprah’s “No Phone Zone” pledge where they’re either claiming they will not text while driving, or will not text while driving, but may use handsfree calling if they need to use the phone, or will not text while driving, but will pull over if they need to use the phone. Look, I get it. Oprah has a point. It’s not that smart to text while driving, but it’s a bit easier for the person to create this “pledge” when they are typically driven around in a chauffeured automobile.
Also, why isn’t it ok to text if you are sitting in traffic or at a complete stop at a stop light? Ok, maybe the “sitting in traffic” part is a little overboard, but still. I expect to get some nastygrams over this blog post, but I just wanted to call “B.S” on most of the people who signed this pledge. They just want to anonymously impress Oprah and do whatever she says. And “yes” I’m talking to you Julia Roooooobbbbbberrrrts! And “yes” I’m talking to you John Traaaaaavvvvvolta! Fine I just wanted to toss in my Oprah impression. That is all.
