I'm on the 21st floor of a sky rise in downtown Miami, trying to make a
phone call from my cell phone. The connection keeps getting dropped, my
reception is barely at one bar. I get better reception in the elevator.
Why should we have to deal with this $%!* in this day and age? I mean
aren't cell phones standard issue now? Shouldn't they have the bugs
worked out. Take a look at the product line that most cell phone
companies offer. What in the world would someone need that selection of
phones for? Really, why should we care which technology it uses to make
the call, just make the d^%& call!!! why not work on a single network
that f&%^$*&% works instead of putting useless features on phones that
are disposable. AHHH this kind of stuff makes me so ripped.

I'm off to find some drywall to punch holes into....

Out of 10 possible points

Masking - 3 I understood what the words are but not used in excess.
Emotion - 2 I didn't feel that you were angry. I thought Dr. Phil on
antidepressants was making this post...
Other - 1 There was no bodily harm against yourself, or another person.
However you threatened an inanimate object that has some good value. You
would have received more points if you replaced drywall with a concrete
slab.

Over all 6.

Hmmmm somewhere around a 4 - 5 on my rant scale.

Only adequate verbage

The topic was generic

Were you ranting against the wireless network? the phone? the designers
of the phone? the building? the designers of the building? You were not
completely clear on that.

Adequate use of masking symbols

You could have explained what/how you planned to hurt a little further.

It's been awhile since you had a rant so I'm giving you a little slack.
Rusty yew are.

I bet you anything while you couldn't make a call, your cell phone:

1) Had no problems taking pictures.
2) Could play your MP3s.
3) Probably could still allow you to browse the web.
4) Was a great txting tool.

And that's what matters. Making calls... you silly person. Why would a
cell phone need to do that?

No Sprint! And I get pretty decent reception in most places, other than
my kitchen and most elevators.
