Finding it more and more annoying these days with friends who are constantly checking their beeping phones. Its an epidemic. Its a disease. Phones have turned into mini life support machines. Its like you might literally die if you don’t check the message the second it comes in. How on earth did us humans function before? I tend to blame this technology for the vast number of people with memory problems. No I’m not saying its the cause of some horrendous disease, but we use to have to remember our stories to tell our friends next time we saw them, now its text it the minute we’ve done something to ensure we don’t forget. Do understand there is a necessity for phones but can you not do the decent thing and put it on silent, occasionally? I swear you won’t die!
