Walk This Way
I see them all of the time, people walking along the sidewalk, or the subway platform, gently swaying from side to side, staggering slightly like a person who has had a little too much to drink. They are totally clueless to their surroundings, they are engrossed in their phone. It can be text messages, or talking on the phone, the impact is about the same. They speed up and slow down, they weave from side to side, they are incapable of walking in a straight line.
Sadly they miss the world around them. A few times in the middle of a major world Capital I have been tempted to shout, LOOK UP, YOU ARE MISSING THE WORLD. But that would be rude, I try not to me rude.
Do you walk and text?
