Seriously, finally, just fuck you people with smartphones out all the fucking time.
I am increasingly convinced the only way to stay sane is to revert back to a flipphone, which I use. If I need to be connected, I do so when I get home. If someone wants to talk to me, they can call me. I have text disabled. Believe it or not I’ve never missed anything earth-shaking and I manage to live day to day without a smartphone. I’m in front of a keyboard and a monitor enough, when I’m with the kids, when I’m with people I care about I don’t want to constantly be distracted by a cell phone. Besides which, it’s rude and hurtful to the people you love when you are constantly breaking off to check your phone. Really, fark smartphones. They are terrible terrible things that enable terrible behaviour, mostly in people who are prone to be assholes anyway, but otherwise innocent people are also guilty.
