Out on the street you are faced with this crowd of sticks coming at you....apart from them looking ridiculous, they are also a bit unsettling & scary....if you are not careful you can be smacked around the head with them...
If there is something to see that draws a crowd, can you see it...NO, you bloody well cant, because of the sea of sticks in front of you...grrrr
For ages I have been thinking that they reminded me of something...last night it came to me..
Last night as I sat in a restaurant, I saw the most god awful sight coming toward me...a very large German woman stomping along with one of these on her head....
I sat there thinking "what sort of friends/family do you have that they wouldnt tell you that you look like a total DORK?"
Yes, I do know that these things are handy...SOMETIMES!
But they just seem to replace the real thing....how can you take in the life of a place, if you are absolutely concentrated on whether the settings etc on your camera are right?
You might as well stay home & look at pics on the internet...imagine the money you would save!
The same goes for blasted cellphones!
Why go to some exotic place, with so much to see, but then spend your entire time glued to the screen of a phone?
It just doesnt make sense to me...not to mention how bloody rude it is...
I have now made a rule that if anyone sits down to talk to me, then proceeds to answering/talking/texting on their phone, then they can piss off....I will not play second fiddle to a bit of plastic & wires!!!!
( I do sometimes take my laptop to a cafe, but the moment someone strikes up a conversation, the lid goes down)
We are losing the art of conversation (believe me, the oldies are just as bad as the young people)....I for one are not going to put up with this rudeness any longer!!!!
