Good post. What’s represented in the pictures above, and a dating culture like that of the movie Logan’s Run, would be enough to sink this culture even without all the helping hands from the current White House resident and those that put him there.
Once of those morons came within inches of rear ending me the other day. She somehow woke up long enough to lock up her brakes, but didn’t even look up from the text message she was composing.
Talking? Talking is so last century. They just sit in pods clicking and swiping away. It is eerie; the only sounds are the sounds of their smart phones.
You're right, shows how really out of touch I am.
My wife and I noticed this phenomenon when we went to a number of concerts of big-name entertainers in the last few years. As the entertainers were performing, we could see countless people in the audience looking at their cell phones and pressing the buttons. Some were obviously taking pictures of the performer, but even during breaks many people were preoccupied with their little gadgets. It’s a brave new world.
That's about my rate. I'm 63, and weeks go by where I don't use my cell phone. It's a handy gadget....when not overused.
At 66 you and your wife have probably said it all already! (My wife and I included.) ;-)
Einstien was an idiot also.
Einstien believed that socialism works. that’s the most idiotic thing to believe ever.
Also Einstien didn’t believe in a lot of quantum theory and so Einstein was wrong there too.
If you’ve got to contact or respond but can’t speak, such as in a meeting or something, I understand texting. But actually preferring to spend your time squinting and pecking away at a tiny tiny keyboard or even worse picking your way through the alpha characters on a numeric keypad? It’s tedious. Must be Facebook exhibitionism of every minute movement, another thing I don’t get.
He wasn’t an idiot, just overly focused, he just didn’t know he was speaking from experience with that statement without knowing it.
I got to the point that I understand texting, as there a lot of people I rather text a short note to, then talk to them on the phone. Saves time, and idiot interaction.
Yes I’m 55
I’m with you - I miss the days when the phone was securely attached to the wall. My wife uses hers a lot more than me. I only carry mine so she can contact me if necessary - when we’re together, mine stays at home on the counter. I have some months where I show under 15 minutes use on mine. You got me beat by 6 years, but the generational effects are pretty much the same.
We’ve had a rash of young drivers crossing the center line and head-on collisions. Running off the road, etc.
Told my wife last night I’ll bet cell phones/texting accounts for most of them.
Get called ‘old hat’ or ‘old salt’ because I do NOT engage in all this silly crap with i-this and i-that. Have one cell phone and when I need, yes need, to talk with someone I do so and prefer to talk to people rather than text.
