Text Necks Syndrome or Zombies?
I continue to be astonished by the phenomenon known (to me) as “technology addiction.” Some may also say “zombies” might be a good fit.
The number of people who are practically non-stop “on their phones” (a.k.a., portable computers / communication devices) is crazy!
It is my belief, that because I have the ability to see what the “populous” is doing (almost unknowingly due to their addiction), that it has made me a stronger person with more resolve to NOT be like that.
Often, I leave my apartment WITHOUT my phone. On purpose. Whaaa? How could you do that? “What if?” there is an emergency? Jeez.
Well, every other person has a phone – and I’m sure I’ll be able to use one if absolutely necessary.
Being connected at all times is not a virtue. It’s an affliction.
You are all capable of being without. Try it one day. Or a few. It’s not that bad.
