This May Look Normal, But It’s Very Wrong. Probably Even Much Worse Than You Perceive.

Please don’t think that I am posting this as some old uncultured swine who is not up on the times. My main concern is that young people are focused on one thing and only one things: their phones. This tiny screen basically controls their lives and has been made the center of their lives. I do agree that checking your email and answering messages and calls is completely normal, call your mother, call your father, but these next photos expose the totally unnecessary:
