Why are so many people so obsessed with their phones?

It kind of seems like people nowadays can't just stand few minutes without using their phones.
On the street, waiting on the line, workplace, basically everywhere, people really have no patience to just stay patiently for just few minutes.
I have phone, but it's not smartphone and just old-fashioned phone and only use it when really needed.
And I actually have patience to wait for something without touching the phone.

I seriously don't get why people nowadays have to check their phones every minute.
On the workplace, sometimes I see people using phone when they are supposed to be working while other workers are working, ...and on one occasion even saw two people fighting because one guy is always on the phone and doesn't do work.
And I can actually focus on something very well because I don't check my phone very minute.

Do people really lack the patience nowadays or what?

Hate that shit, especially when you're in the middle of a conversation, they pull their phone out and check it. Fucking height of rudeness. Feel like just taking it off them and smashing it off the ground.

Do teenagers still think it's cool to have cellphones or did that fad die out?

You mean my phone/alarm clock/guitar tuner/portable radio/mp3 player/fleshlight/newspaper/camera/encyclopedia/e-mail inbox/messenger? Cause it's freakin' awesome!

Nah I don't really take my phone out when I'm with people or in public unless I'm getting a call.


Press Play to wake up.

If I'm talking to somebody and I take my phone out while they're talking, obviously whatever I'm checking on my phone is more interesting than what the person I'm talking to is saying.

Re: Why are so many people so obsessed with their phones?

It does get annoying. Shit, I don't even have a cell phone and my 10 year old neighbour has a cell phone and just recently got a 500 dollar iPad. To her credit she saved up birthday and Christmas money since last year and bought it herself, but still. Makes me feel like a loser seeing every little kid on the street having a cell phone and I can't even afford one. But then I just see my sister or mother ignore people around them while they text constantly and I feel a bit better. At least I can carry a conversation with someone and not rudely stare into a phone while mumbling "uh-huh...mhmm..."


The good ol' days.
