Cell Jerk Syndrome

portable-cell-phone-boothWe know overhearing someone’s cell phone conversation is annoying. But does the act of talking on the phone actually make you more of a jerk? Someone got the idea to dress someone up in a leg brace and have them walk by both people on their phones and people who weren’t and drop a stack of magazines.  To no one’s shock, the people on the phone were much less likely to pause and offer any help (9% vs. 72% for people not on the phone). At least it’s 9%. Had they been texting, they wouldn’t have seen him drop the magazines or realized anything was wrong!

Brent Lee

QMIX Afternoon Guy, Brent Lee, grew up near Greensburg -- where he started working on the radio at age 14. Growing up as an only child may have been lonely at times, but it led him to be the creative, fun guy we all enjoy on the radio! Brent graduated from North Decatur High School and Ball State University. His first summer during college, Brent actually filled-in as the QMIX Afternoon Guy all summer, when there was a full-time opening on our staff. Little did he know he would return to that job many years later. Brent has worked in radio all over Indiana (and a bit in Illinois too), claiming to never have had a real job. And he’s has been back at QMIX since 2011. We hope he’ll be here for a long time to come! Some of Brent’s favorite things are IndyCar, movies and good food!
