Take a bluejacker, put them in a mobile phone shop with a couple
of Bluetooth phones on display, and you'll never be able to tear
I was that bluejacker. The Carphone Warehouse was the mobile
phone shop. Nokia's new N-Gage was the Bluetooth phone on display.
Last but not least, my mum and brother were the people trying to
get me to leave.
As soon as I stepped into The Carphone Warehouse, I saw a couple
of blokes mucking about on two N-Gages on display. My immediate
reaction was to whip out my T610 and take a picture of them. I did,
and I proceeded to search the shop for Bluetooth devices. Finding
a phone named 'Simon' didn't give me a clue about what model phone
i t was, and therefore I didn't know whether or not it would be
able to accept my picture. Sure enough though, it sent without any
glitches. I could easily make out the infamous message received
tone coming from the direction of the N-Gage stand.
'Simon' was obviously the name of one of the N-Gages, so I turned
(as casually as my bright yellow jumper allowed for) to face these
two guys, now huddled around the N-Gage on the right. Upon receiving
a picture of themselves in the same spot as they were still in,
the immediate reaction of one of the men was to walk out of the
shop. Wondering if the remaining guy would stay in the shop or join
his friend, I made my way closer to the stand. I think it must have
been my laughter that drew his attention to me. I tried looking
away but I simply couldn't; the looks on his puzzled face were addictive.
Even as he made his way to join his mate outside the shop, I still
wasn't sure if they knew I was the one who sent the picture. I must
make a point of not wearing a bright yellow top next time I'm out
