Commentary: We are texting way too much
Sometimes, modern technology is too much of a good thing
By Kathryn Miller
I am in no way against modern technology, cell phones, texting, and the like.
But I really do think that many people have become way too addicted to it.
It seems as though people can't get through a grocery shopping trip without that phone glued to their ear - meanwhile their kids are running around in the store tearing things up.
People can't seem to get behind the wheel and put the phone away. Now they can't even seem to get through a movie without texting every 5 minutes.
My husband and I went to a movie last night and there were constant glows all around us from people texting and then they were complaining that they didn't understand parts of the movie.
One of them just looked at me funny when i said well maybe if you'd pay a little more attention to the movie that you just paid $8.00 to see and a little less attention to the phone you might have understood it.It doesn't stop there.
I am sure others have had the same thoughts as me about it and have had other encounters as well.
Like I said, I have nothing against technology - I am using right now for goodness sake. But I do believe that it has become an addiction to many and people have not learned (and they probably won't ) how to put it down for a little while and enjoy other things around you. -KATHRYN MILLER
