At first, I thought it was my fault. But I soon realized it was not, mostly because I hate accepting blame. Instead, I blame iphone people.
Here's the thing: when I originally started writing down quotes for FOTM Quotes, it was because I was sitting at my desk, talking to various people on the phone, or sitting in class, with a large notebook in front of me. It was easy to write down the quotes and then gather them at the first of the month.
But then I started actually leaving my apartment, and while there were many more opportunities to hear quote-worthy phrases, the problem was, I couldn't ever remember them. So I started typing the quotes into my phone, and for a while, life was good.
Then, I got an iphone. In case you're wondering, I still have the capability to type a quote into my phone. But there are two problems: 1) Using the iphone to type anything more complicated than a phone number totally sucks balls. The interface blows, and the auto-correct is like getting a meth-head to dictate for you.
The second problem is that people with iphones are rude assholes. Right in the middle of a conversation, they'll pull out their phones and start playing a game, or checking their email, or texting someone. This kind of thing does happen with other phones, I admit, but it's the prevalent behavior of people with iphones.
I am not one of those people. I got my iphone because my princess wanted us both to have them, and I have bitched about it ever since. I find the interface constricting and the communication ability is a joke. It's a neat toy, but a shitty phone. As soon as my contract ends, I will be moving on to a mobile device that doesn't want to be my freaking babysitter.
But I'm getting off track. I don't generally yank my phone out and start screwing with it when I'm in the middle of interacting with other people. But when I hear a quote, I like to be able to type it. Unfortunately, because of all the other d-holes who constantly use their iphones in a rude-ass way, every time I pull out my phone, I feel asshole-y and extra rude.
Long way of saying there aren't many Quotes. Blame the iphone jerkoffs who can't integrate manners with technology.
