A sign of the times.
On the plane the tired flight attendant made her announcement about turning off all electronic equipment and toys. She followed up her announcement with, "IF IT HAS AN ON AND OFF BUTTON TURN IT OFF". We as a species aren't very good about listening or giving up our toys.
Oprah has asked people to make a pledge not to talk or text on their cell phones while driving.
It's become an addiction for a lot of people and not one that they can give up or stop easily.
The "right" to use our cellphones has super seceded manners these days.
I am still amazed when I see someone talking on a cell phone while conducting business. A gentleman in front of me at a food counter talked on his while placing his order and picking up his order, there by dismissing the human being, right in front of him.
I've watched couples in restaurants where one will talk on the phone while the other sits and waits for food or to be recognized.
I know a cell phone can be a wonderful piece of equipment. It has it's place.
I find it disturbing how important it has become in so many people's lives.
How did we manage before?
