Cell phones – the new cigarette

28 Jan

I travel often and if I’m not entertaining clients or partners, then sometimes you will find me at a restaurant or bar by myself. I enjoy it because people watching is one of my favorite things – if I’m alone then there’s plenty of opportunity. Have you noticed? Nowadays, people play with their cell phones in bars & restaurants like they used to with cigarettes.  It used to be by holding a cigarette, putting it to your mouth, exhaling….. you know what I mean. Now, it’s the cell phone – opening it, checking to see if anyone called/text/emailed in the last 5 minutes, responding…… you know what I mean.  What will be the new fixation when they ban cell phones in bars & restaurants like they banned cigarettes?

    You don’t try to imply, that cell phones (or computers in general) are bad for your health, or do you?

    Cell phones can be bad for your social health when you’re too focused on them instead of the humans all around you in the bar. Remember that old song, “Love the one you’re with!” 8.>
