It’s funny I’m reading this today, when just the day before I pulled aside a school kid who nearly walked into traffic. Kid was so engrossed in her phone that she barely gave me a passing glance before walking away, no thank you or anything. I seriously don’t think she was even aware of what she nearly did.
It’s one thing to be obsessed with your phone, but when you completely ditch the concept of self-awareness and don’t even realize what the hell is going on with your surroundings. . . that’s taking things too far.
Great article. Very well written.
