To the driver of this dipshittily-monikered vehicle, here's a little pro-bono therapeutic wisdom from me: "The car is not a phone booth, assclown."

Who needs therapy when you got whether like this in mid-january?

How many lanes of traffic did you have to careen across to snap that photo? Were you digging around in your handbag for your camera as you also attempted to navigate your way through the crush of cars so that you could be in the appropriate range to point out that people who operate extraneous electronic devices while driving are not paying enough attention to the road? Just wondering.

I took my camera out at the light, just before he stopped here, but the light turned green too fast so I didn't get a picture there. There's only one lane in each direction for traffic on this street. The middle lane is a turning lane. The middle lane, at the time, was occupied by a big truck so I couldn't get around him. But, thanks for asking!

My problem wasn't that he used a cell phone at all, but that he was one of those distracted drivers, weaving slightly and slowing down and then speeding up for no apparent (visible) reason whatsoever. Also, he was operating the wheel one-handed, with the cell phone in the other hand. All in all, it made for a slow and irritating drive behind him.
