word of the day: February 25, 2009
The loudness one adopts in response to a bad cell-phone connection, in the misguided hope that talking louder will improve the connection.
"I'm so embarrassed. I went totally yellular at a restaurant last night."
... as above...
I often hear my Afghan roommate screaming in Dari through her cell phone at her family at 3 IN THE MORNING hoping that her increased volume will somehow multiply her comprehensibility over the 7500 miles... that's yellular technology.
The point in a cell phone
conversation were one person begins loudly verbalizing their disapproval, discomfort, or other negative emotion. This person usually attracts a lot of attention, and surrounding public may be inclined to ask the person to quite down.
Oh man! Yesterday I was on a date with Lisa, when Stephanie called and told me she had STDs
. I totally went yellular on her and rode her ass about how that was so not okay with me.
Then the waiter came and told me to take it outside, so I decked
his ass and left.
