TO WHOM ARE THEY TALKING, AND WHAT ARE THEY SAYING?

Okay, I have been doing a visual survey of folks leaving the suburban parking lot of our middle class community and have discovered the following:

1. Ladies driving SUV's immediately get into the SUV's and start talking on their cell phone before even backing out of the parking space. I mean 9 of 10 women, regularly! And they talk all the way to their next destination.

2. Men don't (at least not as much).

Okay, so I want to know:

a. To whom are they talking?

b. What are they saying?

I can't imagine having that many people to call or that much to say.

Can anyone give me a clue (I only use the CP in urgent situations or to retrieve messages from my voice mail, and then usually I am stopped)

So, give me a clue about this observed phenomenon.

You're not some kind of weird stalker are you? Do the women of your neighborhood know that you're following them to observe how long they talk on a cell phone for?

No, I just happen to be in back of them as they are talking at the same time as they leave the parkng lot and we head off the same direction. Perhaps they do eventually hang up. Never seen them do that, though.

You hit it on the head. Might as well cancel this post. It goes nowhere!
