Why do mobile phones have to be so damn mobile?

My family never phone me from a sitting position. No, they do it panting up hills on bicycles, or walking briskly down the road in heavy traffic. Yesterday evening the Daughter phoned me from what appeared to be a wind tunnel, and at one point threw her phone across the road in apparent alarm. It's not restful, folks, it makes me all twitchy.

my hat blew off in the wind, and I had to go and chase it.

Excuses, huh? You're all the same. Paul de Man did the dame thing this evening (though without the phone-lobbing element, it must be admitted).
