People Wearing Bluetooth Headsets for No Reason

I understand the point of Bluetooth. You don't want to be bothered holding a cell phone up to your ear for a long period of time, you need to use your hands to cook dinner, or your state doesn't allow you to hold a cell phone in your hand while driving. I get it. What I don't get is why people wear their Bluetooth headsets like it is a piece of fancy jewelry. For example, there is a man who works at the IT desk in our library. But it's not the IT department, it's just the desk where you can drop off your computer if it's having an issue or check out a school-owned laptop. So I don't understand why he needs to wear his Bluetooth all day long. Plus, he works in a LIBRARY where you are supposed to be quiet and not having phone conversations because students are trying to study. Granted he doesn't work on one of the official "quiet" floors, but still... it's a library. There are other examples of this phenomenon like people underground on the subway where there is no reception or clerks at stores that sell technological things like phones and computers or people out to a nice lunch or at happy hour.
Here's my opinion. Take off the headset because you look stupid, and put it in your pocket. It's like the size of a Ghurken pickle. It won't take up too much space.
