There was a woman on her cell phone. Walking not paying attention the opening to the basement of the store was up. She fell down in it on concrete steps. I was not updated to her injuries. But I know she can't sue for that mishap. I when I am searching something on my phone. I stop and stand still. I hate when people bump into me with their heads down.

YesterdayI almost fall down to concrete steps because I was looking for something rather than my steps.

It is quite common these days. Adults with head phones talk and cross the street at the same time. Even children are so busy playing on their gadgets that they dont even listen to their parents calling for them. Happens everyday in my home :(

I don't think kids should be that addicted right now.

@sharon6345 You are right but we esp my brother and sister-in-law are trying hard to break that habit. I hope it works out :)

I think this woman has hopefully learned a lesson.

That's really bad habit, some people are so busy on their phones on roads they won't notice what's happening around..

I heard about that, that was I hate to say it but funny I know it's not suppose to be BUT she should have KNOWN better than to be on the phone & walking. I BET she learned a HARD lesson not to do that any more.

It has become a sickness being on the cell everywhere and everyplace.

On the other hand, it can be quite a funny scene. My daughter told me that she once hit a pole while texting and walking and I told her that's what she got for not paying attention to what she's doing. But it must have been so funny seeing her walked into a pole.
