Dear Berry: Lunch With an Addicted Co-Worker

Dear Berry, First of all, I'm not a BlackBerry owner, nor I have ever used one. However, I work in an office environment where there are a few who love their CrackBerry.  Usually it doesn't bother me at all and other times I feel jealous (since they can check and respond to their email while on the go, and I can't).  Usually I'm quite tolerant of others but today I observed some disturbing...
