i was dining in one of the local restaurants. there were 7 people in total at the restaurant including myself. as i walked out of the washroom what i saw felt like a scene from a movie:
the other 6 people sitting at small dining tables and EACH and EVERY one of them had their heads down looking at their smart phone. no conversations. no eye contact. no interactions. no small chat. nothing nada. friends. partners. spouses. parent child. it didn't matter. even the individual who was eating by himself having a large hot soup was looking at this smartphone being careful not to drop the phone as he watched a video during his meal. this is the outside world. this has become the world we live in. AND yet WE ARE NOT AWARE TO CARE THAT THERE IS SOMETHING NOT QUITE RIGHT WITH THAT SCENE.
