The Bluetooth headset is a much needed device, especially in California where the law says that you must use a hands-free device in order to talk on the phone while driving…but there is a distinct difference between a Bluetooth user and what I like to call a “Bluetoofer”

Bluetoofer – |ˈbloōˌtoōfur|  noun.  One who wears a Bluetooth headset as an accessory?

I’m so glad that the evolution of the Bluetooth Headset has finally steered away from the BLINKING BLUE “I NEED ATTENTION” LIGHT…that used to famously PISS ALL OF US OFF. You know that FOOL up in the club lookin like Levar Burton in Star Trek or somehow acting like he’s talking to Mission Control. As if we all don’t know that he can’t talk to anyone over the loud Lil Jon track Blaring inside the club.

The Bluetooth Headset is the equivalent of what a Beeper was back in the day. It gave the APPEARANCE of IMPORTANCE, until they were available to the Masses, which then diluted the image. Bluetoofers still think that having these gadgets are cool even though local swapmeets carry most of these products now in an under $20 bin.

These are the true characteristics of a Bluetoofer.

  • He’s usually someone’s Uncle.
  • He’s 35+ Years Old.
  • He Might have been a Bus Driver at Some point in his life.
  • He wears Mock Turtlenecks / Hardbottom Shoes with Jeans/ Black Leather Jackets
  • He greets you with a Pimpy.. “WHAT IT DEW!!!”(even thought he’s too old for that.)
  • He Watches a lot of Action Films/CSI Shows
  • He looks like he hangs out with Charles Barkley
  • He wears Sunglasses in the Club
  • He’s an OFF-DUTY PASTOR.



….I’M COOL ON THAT!!!!!!

10 02 2010

10 02 2010

OMG reminds me of my Uncle Robbie… like foool nobody is calling yo ass lol

10 02 2010

Hahahahahah. U must be in the Glendale area a lot hahahaha they’re all over there!!

10 02 2010

LMAOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! so true! I have seen them at the clubs, people I work with… its amazing how 1 gadget can make a person feel important… sigh – u gotta love it :)) Funny topic & REAL!

10 02 2010

OMG sooooo true and hilarious. Except, I still see those blue flashing lights on bluetoofers on 125th all the time! LOL

10 02 2010

That aint right! You completely left out the old foolywag women who still rock these. I see them often! So not cute!

10 02 2010

LOL…I knew I wasn’t the only one who felt this way. This was an issue people need to address…lol

10 02 2010

bahaaaa I always wondered why men had them damn ear pieces on all the time….I was at a club and saw a big dude with his ear piece in thought he was a bouncer and went over and said dude canyou show me the bathroom, he cussed me out. I said hey you aren’t security, he threw his drink on me what a loser lmaooo He thought he was looking cool,

16 02 2010

@Relyn what you mean he threw his drink on you?! damn that is some sad style though…they need to be home on the damn phone if they think they can look cool in the club with a bloody “bluetoof” knowing you cant hear shit and not only that but knowing aint nobody tyrna call yo ass lmao.

10 02 2010

That’s the truth! Then when the phone rings they’re digging it out of their pockets to see who it is. Just use the phone. Ha!

10 02 2010

You hit that one right on the head!!! I am so cool on bluetoofers!!!! Especially bus stop bluetoofers!!!

10 02 2010

Yet another funny, well-written piece. I’m extremely pleased that you touched on this topic. The image of importance and pseudo-status that people attempt to create for themselves is pathetic. But it surely makes for good entertainment for the rest of the world, the non-toofers. I wish you would have touched on those who carry on these conversations using their BTs and appear to be talking to themselves or talking to you, then dramatically point out their BT as if it truly means something. I still have a strong suspicion that a good percentage of these toofers aren’t actually on the phone with anyone and are in fact stunting. These stunters are the lesser of the toofers lol.

Thanks again and looking forward to the next one!

10 02 2010

Nuthin worse than your girlfriend is a closet toofer! Hella tired of sein a blue light blinking in her damn tracks. Dud the shit get stuck in her weave glue or is it sending a secret beacon to the Asian lady at the beauty supply store? WTF?!?!

10 02 2010

This is hilarious!!

10 02 2010

and the worst ones are the ones with bluetoof and a damn flip phone. How important can u be still walking with a flip phone.

10 02 2010

HILARIOUS!!!!!! You r crazy this got tears n my eyes it is so true, they walk around like they doing big business and most of the time its so much interference with the reception that you cant hear anyway! Lol to the bluetoofers!

10 02 2010

Funny as hell-right on target… Again! Darrell down the street wears his alllll the time!! Lol I think it’s so he can cover up the fact that he talks to himself.

Thanks for the link, glad you like the site.

I was just fed up enough about these self important “Bluetoofers” that I ended up creating this site back in July and have had NO shortage of pictures being sent to me on a daily basis.

It’s amazing how many people out there still wear these things thinking they’re adding a level of importance to their otherwise mundane life.

10 02 2010

I can imagine. Great site!

10 02 2010

hahaha, this is funny. I know a bluetoofer (or two) and didn’t even know it. Thanks for the laughs, your humor is comic relief.

10 02 2010

Hahaha @ “usually someone’s Uncle” & “off duty pastor!”
Sometimes i wanna snatch it off their ear just to see if they’re actually just talking to their own voicemail. I got $5 on it that 9 out of 10 are!

10 02 2010

Its usually the buff doods too. UNneccessarry accessory. Walkin round the club like he got an important call comin in. Then why the hell u in the club?? U know ur oldest daughter is in there too. Chaperon GTFOH. C’mon Son.

10 02 2010


10 02 2010

Bluetoofers? lol I think I know about 3 bluetoofers and a mini bluetoofer he uses his while flipping burgers at burger king.

10 02 2010

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhahaha “he looks like he hangs out with charles barkley” HILARITY! Keep up with these posts…it actually helps keep me up and alert at work!

10 02 2010

There are several people I’m related to who need an intervention on this right here. One of em had it on at the altar when he was minutes from getting married. His brother called him from a pew on his cell phone to remind him to take it out before he got married. HILARIOUS.

10 02 2010

Omg!!!! Soooo funny I had tears … As I was reaing this I see 2 patients come into the clinic as true “Blutoofers”but they were older females LOL either way it still applies

10 02 2010

I never comment on these things but i found this so truu..my dad is what he wuld call a blutoofer and he matches the 1st 3 characteristics..hes 45 and a bus driver…

10 02 2010

Bluetoofers, flip phones, fast cars it all depends on who you’re trying to impress and how much you can spend. Cause we’re a society that is very interested in what you have. but on a lighter note I think it’s “middle child syndrome”, always trying to get at the limelight but never quite hitting it right like the oldest or the youngest/baby.

10 02 2010

lmao at the characteristics! sadly we all know at least one person who fits many if not all these qualities thus making them a “bluetoofer” lol. oh and the graphic that was chosen is so on point with the characteristics its not even funny lmao.

10 02 2010
Ali G

it is my belief that these chumps are AFRAID to miss a call because their phones NEVER really ring.

10 02 2010

You’d be amazed at the number of people that don’t realize the bluetoof is not appropriate in church!! I’ve actually reminded a deacon to take his off! Damn shame! Who’s calling you….Jesus?

10 02 2010
Deadly Diva

This… Spot on…

Once, this “up and coming rapper” that was trying to talk to me gave me a copy of his CD… Why was the cover shot him kneeling, throwing up the peace sign like he was taking one of those club photos… with his bluetooth firmly in place…

10 02 2010

Okay, what I hate most is when they wear their bluetooth in church or at the dr. office or at a concert! Fool!! Are you really going to answer your phone right now, NO, so take that off!!! And it seems like they get bigger and bigger!!!!! I refuse to even wear one thanks to those who wear them as accessories!!!!!

10 02 2010

Oh, and when they wear them at the salon!!!! OMG!!!!

10 02 2010

I love to wake up in the morning to find a new post. Waking up to a good laugh is just what I need to start my day.

Guys and manly looking girls always rock those damn Bluetooth in their ears…I hate that! They look like a joke LOL! Instant turn off!

This is funny! I am personally annoyed by “bluetoothers” who burst into random cell phone conversations in public. Does everyone need to hear you hating on your ex or about the crime you and your homie are planning.

11 02 2010


11 02 2010

1. These blogs are like the crack pipe to me.

2. I saw about 3 culprits on the bus going to work yesterday!

11 02 2010

Hilarious….. Great post!!!!

11 02 2010

lmao that shit is too funny!!! thats exactly howthem old niggas be too!

11 02 2010

*dead* at “Toofers” hahaha

11 02 2010

OMG i laughed so hard at this! I just keep saying UNCLE!!! Why don’t my white uncles do it though? Just my black uncles – damnit. I refuse to date a guy who is a bluetoof head.

11 02 2010

LMAO….”He looks like he hangs out with Charles Barkley”!!!! So true!!!!!!

11 02 2010
Wes C. Rydher

That shit looks retarded. I refuse to do it. BIG ASS flashing light in your ear. WTF?

11 02 2010

lmfao I was just thinking about those people that always got it on like is it really that serious that you need it while you’re walking? Personally, I only use mine in the house when I want to use my laptop comfortably but that bluetooth does not leave this house at all lol

11 02 2010

Hysterical! I will admit Nile, you caught me with my bluetoof in my ear in my pix! I aint ashamed, but damn, I be forgetting that stupid thing is in my ear! At $120.00 I better forget that thing is in my ear, cause it better have top of the line comfort and sound for that price! Jawbone Bluetoof foooools!! LOL

11 02 2010
rani b. sure!


may i also add for the female bluetootfers:

– she rock long acrylic nails in colors like “Red Hot Orange” & “Pecan Frost”

– she is 35 years or older

– she says things like “please believe me.”

– she has a license plate holder that says “Respect & Protect The Black Woman” and a Betty Boop bumper sticker.

11 02 2010


11 02 2010

Comical…people should go around and just start snatching them out of people’s ears.

I don’t care what the law says. Pick up the phone. I don’t want to hear your conversation anyway. Just another reason & way for dudes to floss what they have or want us to believe they have as they loud talk screaming into an earpiece. Women need to cut it out too.

11 02 2010
jamal jennings

True True True. Bluetoofers bother me! LOL! Also unless you’re driving…pick up the damn phone! It kills me to see folks walk-around looking like a schizo talking to themself. And by the way…if you’re in a large group of people, step yo a$$ aside to talk on your phone instead of talking about 15 other people as if we need to hear your conversation.

11 02 2010

I try to save that little raggedy battery in mine so when the call is over, it goes off! Plus I don’t wanna be calling nobody on accident… You should turn yours off too. A flashing blue light in my eyes when I’m never sober is never good. Kill dat ish! Oh yeah, stop talkin’ so dayum loud. They can hear you just fine dawg.

11 02 2010

That is sooo funny!! Those are the things I DONT miss about California!! Thanks Nile!!!

11 02 2010

Hella funny and true. Why do people feel the need to walk around with these things…that little blinking blue light catches me off guard sometimes. I’m even embarrassed to use my Bluetooth in the car and only do it when I HAVE to for work.

11 02 2010

HA! yeah, its a weird society .. those “Toofer’s”

11 02 2010

This is to funny…. But very true!!!

11 02 2010

11 02 2010

Yo Nile once again you are right on point wit this!

11 02 2010

Lmao this is so true. And they always walk like they are Billy Dee

11 02 2010

LMAO….I just saw a guy like that at the club last nite and he has 4 f te characteristics! I personnally have never used one. I believe that in about 15 years ppl who have used them over 2 years will have some kind of brain or hearing issues. That’s too many waves goin to anyones head.

12 02 2010

I HATE these dudes! The best is when the wanna-be-black white chicks have them in thinking they will get respect in the community. WHACK! Segway to your next unofficial topic…WHIGGERS! Why we hate the word, but people think it’s so cool. Suck it society!

12 02 2010

Funny as always Nile!!!!

16 02 2010

LOL!!!! I hate that sh*t!… I see that all over in NJ!!!

16 02 2010

Like, I think my dad got 4 of those characteristics down from the list! Haha! I hate that people buy them just to wear it, but they obviously don’t know how to set it up or talk on it, at one point he actually took it off his ear and started yelling into it…smh, oldies…

16 02 2010

This is High-Freakin-Larious!! I see this all day err’day and all I can do is shake my head and say why?! Good one Nile! You are so funny, and on point with all of your twitter posts and blogs.

I was watching a reality show over the w/e and this dude had one displayed in his ear during the entire show. In the house, at the club, in church! WTH!? I hate to see them displayed just as much as you do. Hilarious read and oh so true!

16 02 2010

the worst is when they have two phones…one bluetoof in each ear….would that be BLUETEEFS ??

17 02 2010

This is too funny! I know a couple of “Bluetoofers” that think they are so important walking around talking, knowing good and darn well they talking to their Momma. Whew, thanks for this laugh.

17 02 2010

OMG My uncle is definitely a Bluetoofer lmfao…this is some true shit

23 02 2010
