Dont you hate it when...

Your driving and your cell phone falls out of your pocket and goes in between the seat and the center console. Then you start reaching for it and it starts ringing. You cant stick your hand in there and touch it because it is too tight. Then eventually by the time you get to a red light and use two hands to get your phone it stops ringing?

I notice that has been happening to me lately.

Great advice for cell phone users [while driving]. It's my pet peeve since I almost got taken off the count by someone with a cell phone stuck to their head. Funny thing was, they never dropped the call during the twisted wreck. Must have been a good cell phone carrier.

That's happened to me many times. Usually I keep it on the seat next to me and take a right hand turn and DOH, right off the seat next to the door. Usually I do have to pull over to get it. LOL!

It's not that it's so important that I talk on the phone, it's that it's a pain in the ass when I have to reach for it when it falls between the cracks.
