I have never seen such a preoccupation with something as I now see with phones in the USA. I'm profoundly afraid that in 10 years people will have forgotten how to look in someone's eyes who is
speaking to them and be able to answer. I exaggerate a little, but, not much.
In my humble opinion TV was the beginning of the demise of the family. Now I think the phone will end any last vestiges of connection. Will anyone read books anymore? Develop a comprehensive vocabulary?
I'm serious. It's distressing.
Maybe because I just arrived "cold turkey" from Mexico and it's an apparent obsession to me. I don't know but it is an amazing sight to see people with a phone in their hand all the time.
I know this post will rankle some people, but, only those that it applies to, I presume.
Glad I still have my $18 little cell phone that only allows me to occasionally make a phone call........
Ok, I got that off my chest, ha.
