The Tire Shop

I speak of the tire shop because, last time I was home I had a tire being repaired and, It struck me that everyone was on their phones while waiting in the lobby and, no one was talking to each other

 

I have been thinking about the constant distractions we have in our lives and, how when you look around nearly anywhere you can find people being distracted by their own digital lives. I have had these conversations with a lot of different people because, I am working on getting out of my digital distractions also.

I see this everywhere these days airports, safety meetings, restaurants etc… I am looking forward to the next time I walk into the tire shop and, I will politely start talking to everyone about anything… Especially attempting to point out the distractions and lack of human connections in modern society.
