This might be a topic to gross people out, but come on people — we need a sense of humour too. I pick my nose. It’s no big deal. When I see others doing it too, it reminds me that lots of people are doing it too.
I was waiting for my appointment on Tuesday, and there was a young child in the waiting area with his mum. He kept trying to get her attention by pulling her arm, or running around the seats, but her attention was on her phone. She wouldn’t even look at him, just kept saying “I need to do this”. Clearly, she was ignoring her child. The only reason why she got her head out of her phone was when her child began picking his nose. She immediately expressed her disgust and rushed him to the toilet, telling him “don’t ever do that again. That is disgusting”.
What’s the big deal with picking your nose? Although my dad always told me to stop picking my nose when I was a kid, and he still does now, it’s not like it’s picking the butt, is it? Picking the nose is quite therapeutic. Bogies are only dust.
When are some parents going to realise that phones have become more important than their children? Clearly this child wanted attention, but was ignored. Can she not see that she was ignoring her own child.
Phones are great. It is amazing that we can talk to someone across the world, but they are addictive gadgets too. Let’s be honest! Some people are so lucky to have children. Do they see what an amazing gift they have been given? I have no children, but would like a child. I’ve even thought up a name if it’s a girl, or a boy, but children learn behaviour and the last thing we need to teach our children is that they are less important than a bloody phone.
