In this cell phone driven world, why do people think it is alright to text and be glued to their phone even when they are with other people?
Is it really necessary to sit right next to someone while having coffee, and text or talk to someone else on the phone? Why go interact with real people at all then? Just stay at home and conduct all your correspondence through your phone. Because it is rude to the person you are with. Basically says to them.....you are not as important as this person I am talking to on the phone.
Worse yet is to be driving in the car and be texting so much you almost kill everyone in the car. Get lost or better yet never say one word to the living breathing person in the car with you while on the way to your destination.
Maybe we need to cut the umbilical cord with our cellies. What did we do before cell phones existed. We planned on meeting up and chatting in person. We called home phones and talked. Or left messages so talking could happen when both parties were not otherwise doing something else. Is that lost now??
Maybe not....but we all could do a better job of realizing it. Incorporate the best of both worlds....basically just be more considerate.
