How true is this quote - have we reached this point yet? I do wonder sometimes.
The photo below is a very familiar sight if you have teenagers with phones and friends.
There is nothing more annoying than people on mobile phones in a social setting eg with a group of friend out for meal etc. Will the world end if they ignore or turn off their phones every now and again. I don't mind if its an important call (children, husband, bank etc) but most often its just friends wanting to chat (or send SMS).
At Christmas time I walked into two different stores and on both occassions the young sale assistants were on their mobile phones chatting with friends. It wasn't hard to work out it was friends by the way they were talking. It wasn't a good look for the store and I had to wait to be served.
