Cell phone stereotyping is just yet another excuse for people to look down on other people. "Look at the zombies, they can't look up from their
phones, ha ha, what has this world come to!" And then when it's pointed out that they, too, have a phone of some sort, they are quick to justify
themselves: "Oh well I only have a dumb phone and ONLY use it when I HAVE to, please pat me on the head and give me a cookie for being so
The other day we were in a doctor's office, and my wife, son and I all had our techno gadgets out. The nurse was like, "oh so sad that this is the
new family unit, everyone with their phones, blah blah blah." I was like "and yet if each of us had our noses in one of those magazines THAT YOU
PROVIDE, you'd have nothing to say. Even though the effect would be exactly the same."
And that's what it is now; a justification for either mocking others, or feigning concern for the future. How did we get so judgmental? Yes there are
some people who abuse it and place it as a priority over immediate human interaction, but why lump the rest of us in with them? The vast majority of
people I've come across respect face-to-face contact and don't worship their phones.
