It seems that the internet and cell phones are hell bent on destroying manners. How many times have you been in the middle of a conversation and suddenly are staring at the back of someones cellphone wondering if your words are bouncing off ?
Its become some kind of shield, and you just sit there wondering if there is an emergency or your breath is really that bad ?
Apparently, we no longer feel the need to excuse ourselves to leave the current conversation, especially when we physically don’t have to leave. Would an “excuse me while I whip this out” really be that hard ?
Did you hear that person tell you that someone is stealing your car…of coarse not…you where too busy forwarding the latest dirty joke to your grandmother and her bingo friends. You socialite you.
