Am I Going Crazy?Submitted by LibertyOrDeathNJ on Sun, 11/24/2013 - 01:34
I went to a dinner party last night that had wine and beer tasting with lots of free food. I had a good time but one thing started to bother me as the night went on. I was trying to have conversations with people but every one kept picking up their phones and flashing it around. I swear... at one point of the night I literally saw almost 70 percent of the room with phones in their hands, taking pictures, texting, scrolling, etc. I started to really get annoyed.
I tried to ignore it but this lady kept holding up her phone and her stupid camera was pointing right at me. Was she taking a video of me? I doubt it because she was talking to people just holding up her phone. But for some reason it really bothered me. I then started to say this.... "I wonder if a human could go a whole day with out picking up their cell phone and actually interacted with people face to face.... especially at a dinner party." It got silent and most of the people on the table gave me a dirty look. They didn't stop taking pictures and people were still flashing their crap around me. I had enough and left.
Am I Going Crazy? Because damn... those phones..... I hate them!
I even had a conversation with some one about the new Xbox. It seems like a really cool system with a ton of good features but the weird part was when this guy said the best feature was how they can talk to the Xbox and the camera will be able to scope the whole room. How is that the number one good feature? Why do you want a Video Game System that invades your privacy? I thought it was made so I can play a video game?
By the way, I am not some weirdo that lives in a Box that is shy from every thing. I perform for a living around hundreds of people.
