An Open Letter to Smart Phone Users

by Doug


Dear smart phone users,

Recently have noticed that a lot  of you have been attached to your smart phones.  Many of you are constantly looking at them non-stop without even paying attention to what you are doing.

What people tend to do is use these devices constantly and ignore everything that is going on around them. This is both rude and a safety issue.  Some of the people that use these smart phones don’t use them to call or text anyone. They simply play games on them like nerds. I mean, seriously, don’t you have anything better to do than play Angry Birds or Temple Run on your smart phone?

Do you have any idea what it’s like to try and talk to somebody when they are too busy in their own little world fumbling around with their smart phone?  It is such a huge distraction because you never really know what the person is doing.  They could be texting mean things about you, listening to music, or playing a game out of sheer boredom. You never know what the person may be doing but all you know is that the person seems to be more concerned with their phone then your conversation.

I actually saw a guy walk into a stop sign because he was playing around with his phone.  The makers of these phones create a lot of crazy applications; surely they can make a program that makes the phone sense danger and gives the user a warning.

Some of these programs these phones offer are very good tools to use in your everyday life.  But that’s if you don’t use them brainlessly.
