I think that cell phones have become way to addicting for many. When you go into a restaurant and look around and more than half the patrons are on their phones, it's a problem. I was at a Taco Bill a couple of weeks ago and a an was talking on his phone for nearly 30 minutes while we were eating lunch, he was so loud and he was sitting many tables away. I just thought to myself how rude. I try to be very aware of when I'm on my phone, and if I'm having a conversation and expecting a call or a text I let them know that I might have to interrupt for a call. My teenage daughter has to let me know that she got home, I will let people know that my daughter should be contacting me in the next few minutes and I will need to acknowledge. Now I don't answer my phone every time it rings or check the text when it comes in, if I'm talking to you I want to give you my undivided attention. I just wish that people when talking to me felt the same. I think that texting will be the ultimate break down in communication, young people don't know how to talk face to face anymore. They want to do everything by text. It's just so impersonal.
