Cell Phones and . . . .

I’ve seen women, mothers with toddlers and babies in the back seat, smoking (which is stupid and selfish) and holding a soda in their left hand, texting with their right hand and guiding their van with their knee going 70 miles an hour on the expressway.

I’ve attempted to shop with women, yes all women, holding up the line or blocking an aisle because they are talking on their telephone while shopping for groceries. If they were heart surgeons and discussing a patient, I would certainly understand, but they are not. Sometimes I hear people talking about what they did the night before and other trivial conversations.

I’ve been in public restrooms where women are talking on the phone while in the stall!! I flush on purpose more than once just to let the person on the other end of the call know where their fellow friend is while talking to them.

Couples in restaurants not talking to each other but with a cell phone glued to their ear.

I am glad I am a baby boomer. I know I have more years behind me than in front of me. I’m not sure I could live my life where people never focus on where they are or who they are with, but more interested in what is happening on facebook or some other trivial nonsense.
