Addiction isn’t only about hard core drugs, cigarettes and drink, it can find its way into “civilised” society as well! For the lady above not answering the phone and concentrating on her rather bored children, or the road perhaps, might make more sense. I’m a fan of technology myself but when the conduit to relationships becomes more important than the actual face to face encounter, the world is warped. Sometimes we all have to let go of technology and do a bit of face to face interaction. That way we won’t have to send emoticons but instead see someone actually smile!
The phone rings – you drop everything to answer it! Your phone pings to say there’s a message, or a tweet – you always take a quick look! The computer is on – best just check no one has responded to your Facebook message!
