What drives me crazy is people that ALWAYS have to check-in when they go someplace or check their Twitter Feed or whatever the fuck people check…WHO THE FUCK CARES what is happening!!! Are you out to dinner with me and if so can you devote your attention to me rather than CHECKING TWITTER, ETC??? Are you in charge of the world? Is there some reason you need to keep tabs on things? Are the Twitterers waiting to hear back from you before they make their next really important move???
How about when I step out of the car for 3-5 minutes to fill up the gas tank? Can you sit quietly and possibly think about what we were talking about/doing before I stepped out to fill up the gas tank and what we’ll talk about/do when I get back in the car from filling up the tank, or MUST YOU check Twitter/Whateverelsethefuck you do on your phone 24/7!?!?!
Whatever fucking happened to quiet contemplation?!?!?

Well said, I was one of those people.[/quote]
That shit drives me crazy. It’s disrespectful in my opinion. [/quote]
Yeah, I agree with that. I try never to do it when I’m out with people but it always seems that everyone will be on their phones updating checking stuff out or whatever.
Next time you are at an airport look around and count how many people aren’t staring at a piece of technology. About a month ago I would say there were a few hundred people sitting near my terminal. I could count who wasn’t using technology on 1 hand (wasn’t counting people walking although many of them were on phones too).

I’ve done something similar where I count how many people will actually make eye contact, that and so many people are so buried in their phones and ipads you can pretty much watch what they are doing and they don’t even know.
