Serial Texters in Public
What do you see when you look at this picture? I'm hearing "don't approach me, don't talk to me, because I am clearly talking to someone who I think is more important than the people standing around me." That may sound like a bit of a harsh analysis, but a lot of people look at serial texters and hear the same thing.
We've all done this, or at the very least we know someone that has. We get invited to go out with some friends but other friends keep texting us and we keep responding. Before we know it the night is over and we never actually talked to anyone standing within ten feet! I call this being anti-social in a social setting. Be honest, how attractive are people that stare at their phone typing all night? Not very. So, what makes anyone think that he or she looks popular and attractive by staring at a hunk of plastic all night? Instead we should all pocket the cell and really focus on enjoying the company we have right there with us. Those people on the other end of the phone will quickly make an effort to have more of that "Face to Face Quality Time" learn how super fun and social you are!
