This morning I got a close-up look at one of the worst examples of multitasking I've seen in a long time. I was volunteering as a timer at my first kids' swim meet, and in the lane next to me another timer was talking on his Blackberry during a race! He didn't have anyone in his lane at that moment, right at the beginning of the meet, but I wanted to say Seriously? You are talking on your freaking Blackberry
[with earpiece and everything] in the middle of a swim race when you are a timer????
I would have said something if he had kept it up. Luckily he didn't. I guess he had just one really important call to get out of the way at 9 am on a Saturday morning.
Yikes. If you ever see me doing that, please smack me upside the head.
