Cell Phones...

Well, I saw it first hand last night.

Went out for dinner with friends.

Their 3 teen aged kids were with.

They were on their phones texting for 15 minutes non stop.

The dad had enough and took one phone to see who was so important to ignore the rest of the table.

Turns out that the kids were texting each other.

Dad collected the phones, told them they had been warned before and said they could get the phones back...

after the weekend.

I loved it.

Sadly this it the way of the future in many circles.

The lost are of the verbal communication!
