Your phone can cost you your life!
Part “Friday Fun,” and part “Public Service Announcement…”
Seriously folks, break the phone addiction today!
What made me think of this – was Tuesday’s Police Blotter report – where a woman was unfortunately struck by a vehicle while using her cell phone and crossing the street at the same time.
I’ve noticed a terrible trend that is increasing at exponential rates. The smart-phone / cell / texting addiction has really reached epidemic proportions. People everywhere are so hooked on interacting with these miniature computer devices – that they just can’t put them down – even when their own safety is visibly at risk.
I’d suggest that those individuals that are constantly fiddling with their phones – to try very hard to just put the damn thing away when you’re outside at least. The world
can be is definitely a beautiful and interesting place to observe and think about. And get this – there are tons of people you can (get ready…) actually socialize with as well! You don’t need a login, an account, or anything else! Just open your mouth and talk. Doesn’t even require electricity or a cell plan! Amazing, eh?
Regardless, here’s a fantastic mashup / re-mix of that mall incident – along with her TV appearance where she was considering suing the mall property owners! For her own lack of awareness!
