Aaahh! It made the picture taking sound! RUN!
So there I am, headed towards the checkout in my local grocery store when what do I spot? You guessed it, a bluetooth douchebag.
I readied my iPhone, put it in camera mode and put my finger on the “take picture” button without releasing it yet (just a little trick you might want to use). That enabled me to hold it up to my ear like I was talking.
After picking my basket back up and heading towards the douchebag I turned the appropriate angle and just before I released my thumb…I realized that I didn’t have my phone’s sound turned off which caused me to turn quickly but it was too late, there was the loud shutter sound that my phone makes when taking a picture.
You’ll notice the douchebag has begun to slightly turn his head as he realized I was taking a picture of him (I don’t even want to know what went through his tattooed head). So I quickly beelined it out of there and waited several minutes before checking out.
What really sucked is I spotted a lady in one of the aisles that had a bluetooth earpiece too but I was so too paranoid now, thinking that for some reason my phone would make that sound again even though I turned it back to vibrate.
Alas, I was a student tonight and am attempting to become the teacher to those who have struggled to take the perfect bluetooth douchebag iPhone picture.
Here are some tips:
- TURN YOUR PHONE TO VIBRATE!
- Have the iPhone ready in camera mode with your finger on the “take picture” button
- Pretend to be on your phone
- When at the appropriate angle, hold as still as possible
- Release the “take picture” button
- Submit your picture to BluetoothDouchebag.com
I hope you can learn from my mistakes and help bring these bluetooth douchebags to justice!
