Re: Why are so many people so obsessed with their phones?
My phone is my camera and my computer. Ofc, I have a laptop, but very rarely boot it up (only for uni work or stuff that is impractical to do on a 4inch screen). But anything like google, facebook, taking pictures, emailing, texting, gaming is FAR quicker on my phone than on my laptop. After uni, I'll have little use for a computer at all and will just use internet cafes for anything I can't do on my phone.
That's not to say, however, that I'm lacking manners. While I take my phone with me wherever I go, I would never stop mid-convo to look at it. Always on silent/vibrate. If ever I have to stop to take a call/message, then I step to the side so as not to inconvenience anyone around me.
Having a phone and having basic manners need not be mutually exclusive!
