Oh No !! … Good grief where is my phone ?? Must have it , have not stared at it for 5 whole seconds !! Where is it ?? Oh !! There it is , phew I have to go out today so must have it with me , the world might end if I don’t have my head in my phone 24/7 Then I would get the blame for everything going wrong and that is just not on , no way no how , I will see to that by never taking my head out of my phone . My phone and me must never be apart that would be worse than getting a divorce so that can never be allowed to happen it must be either in my hand or on the desk or table in front of me at all times.
Right ..now I have my phone I am ready to go out no need to worry about anything else as long as my phone is in my hand everything is just perfect . Now out I go walking to the shops or the bus stop or train station or just walking but never ever taking my head out of my phone , oh no cannot do that the world might end if I do remember ? Walking about seeing nothing hearing nothing but what the phone is saying , not seeing other people who I might , and usually do walk into , not seeing traffic lights that are red , not seeing people on bikes that might run into me , not seeing anything at all really except what is on my phone, and if I do get hit I blame the person or thing rather than me for not looking where I was going .
While I am out I might go to a restaurant to have a meal but only dare to look up for 1 minute to give my order then sit down . Lunch/Dinner arrives and I sit there phone in 1 hand fork / spoon in the other I ignore anyone or anything else , don’t even taste the food I have paid for because my head is in my phone and as you know if I put it down the world might end and I don’t want to be blamed for that remember . I take twice as long as usual to have my meal wasting the time of the restaurant owners who might have been able to have someone else in and fed as well in the time I have taken to sit there and look at my phone .
I do not worry about things like that though because as long as I have my head in my phone or ear plugs in just incase it rings , and it might ring so it must be right there because that too could be the end of the world if I don’t answer it by the second ring . Oh No !! that would be a huge disaster if I did not answer it on at least the second ring . After all it might be some earth shattering thing that I need to do or a place I need to get to right away and the world might end ( yet again ) if I do not attend to the phone right the minute it says to . Still don’t want to be blamed for the world ending because I did not keep my head in my phone at all times .
The only time it is allowable to leave it is when I shower or bath or fall asleep in sheer exhaustion . As long as the minute I am out of shower or bath I pick it up again and as soon as I wake up I must pick it up nothing else matters till then. Oh ok if it happens that I have to go to the doctor it is ok to put it down to see him , but it is quite ok to keep my head in my phone while I drive to the doctors that is quite reasonable , nothing to worry about on the way . No cops or traffic lights or pedestrians on zebra crossings or other cars or anything else just as long as my phone is in my hand so I can txt as I drive and maybe tweet or faceache all is well in my world .
To me all is well as long as my phone is in my hand basically 24/7 or as near as possible just in case the world might end and I will get blamed for it and I will not allow that .
I have written this in the way I see it , the way I see almost everyone today , it does not matter what they are doing , driving, shopping , walking, anything and everything , must have that phone in hand and all is well . Every time I go out it seems to be worse and this is a case of what has technology done to us ? Even I have a phone and yes I take it out but while I am travelling it is firmly tucked away out of reach till I get where I am going and sit down safely , but it seems I am the only 1 who can do that . Yes I know I have covered this subject before but it has got so much worse now just had to re – visit it .
I am thinking thoughts that I shouldn’t be thinking,and think that thinking these thoughts will lead to thinking other thoughts that I shouldn’t be thinking.
