I am not that old, but I didn’t grow up with a smart phone. I don’t know if it is just me but I see some people are very much consumed by the smart phone-like technology and are constantly interacting with the phones instead of the people around. People have said such things about people don’t talk to each others on public transportation (subway…etc) anymore because they can interact with the gadgets instead of talking to strangers.
Recently, I was at a restaurant, and noticed a young man with his smart phone and did not interact much with the waiter much. When the waitress bought the food to him, he was looking at his phone. He moved his hands and his phone, so the food can be placed on the table, and he continue to do his own thing. His eyes didn’t look up to make eye contact with the waitress or even the food. He didn’t say thank. I suppose he did acknowledge by making a sound of “Hmm”
Seen this trend?
