they can either waste the time by staring around waiting for time to pass,


waste time - you've obviously never heard of living in the moment?
Maybe even observe the world without the filter of a screen.

PS. I talked to an attorney friend about talking, texting in a car and he didn't quite get it. 'Said he's been doing it over 20yrs.

See? It's the world he and your grandkids were raised in...they know nothing else....and the youngest ones are even worse!

Every time I tried to talk to someone who was devicing (guess this is my new word to describe), all I got was a look like .....why are you bothering me....hurry up and get it over with.......alright , you're old , so what do you want ? ......please , spit it out, so I can get back to my world.

WTF ??? So, what is your take ?



Sounds like people were doing what they wanted to do, and you're mad that they didnt drop everything to make a stranger their center of attention.
What did you expect? If someone is waiting for something they can either waste the time by staring around waiting for time to pass, or using it constructively by talking to friends, interacting on social media, or even on this site trying to figure out if the collapse of fiat currency is likely.




So much for constructive use........


26% of all car crashes in 2014 were because of cell phone use

Over 300,000 injured in 2016 while being distracted by cell phone use

9 people per day are killed being distracted by their cell phone

I have this fight with my wife all the time...

We were on vacation in Hawaii, in a car heading to a remote area to go hiking, the guide had literally just told us about the rarity of black tailed deer. We follow the trail around the bend and there are 3 sitting in the middle of the trail, my wifes nose was in her phone by the time I got her attention and her eyes adjusted to the surrounding light the deer had fled.

Or times we were driving in an area that was normal to see wild animals on the side of the road, she has her nose in her phone and misses the turkey flock, then got annoyed I didn't say something sooner.

There are times I wish something would interfere with our electronic devices, people say so what its not hurting anyone.

Anyone else notice how divided we are as a nation, everyone sits in their own bubble and never gets a chance to see other thoughts, or grow outside of our own personal bubble.

The less we talk, the easier it is to convince groups to hate each other.

I suspect you are uncomfortable with your own thoughts or have ever spent longer than 10 minutes away from a screen.
