The Other Story

[click image to enlarge]

You might recognize the feet and the red bag from Wednesday's post here. This is the other story: it's amazing how quickly mobile devices have caught on. I looked up and everyone sitting across from me was texting, twittering or doing something with their mobile device . . .

I have asked my wife, who knows everything, what people did before cell phones -- to entertain their ears? I still have not got an answer. Amazing photo.

that is a great picture! But I remember what people used to do on the subway before cellphones... they would bring a boom box!

That's so obnoxious.

It is fascinating. If the younger generation lost a couple of fingers they wouldn't know what to do with themselves.

Might actually have to read a book!

Sign of the times. I have to remind myself NOT to text while driving!

Every surveillance picture they had of the 'Craigslist Killer' showed him texting.

Does anyone anymore know what being in the moment is? When I try to have a conversation with "someone" I have to compete with their cell phone. Actions speak louder than words.
