Two days ago, I went out with few of my friends and some other people I've never met earlier (friends of my friends). I was hoping to chat with them the whole day, because I didn't have a chance to go out in last couple of weeks and i really needed to polish my social interactions.
All I could see was some people sniffing their shiny new mobile phones all day. Even my girl friend.
Tried to talk with them many times, but at the end I decided to go out and watch the nature alone.
It is really heart breaking to see what mobile phones have done to majority of the society.
I have seen it going on for years, a group of youngsters one end of the bar texting a group of girls at the other end of the bar, they seem afraid to open their mouths and talk, or too lazy to walk across the room
While these high-end devices are completely unnecessary, I wouldn't say they themselves are the problem. The underlying problem is actually the conditioning created by commercials, peer pressure, social media, etc. What's even more sad is a number of parents say they want to keep their kids away from that conditioning, but don't practice what they preach because they're stuck dealing with jobs and bills.
