Adicted to texting

December 21, 2012

It seems the whole world is adicted to texting these days.  Dont get me wrong I can see its a usefull tool as you can contact someone quickly without the need to phone them up and have  a conversation. Great.  But why should people feel compelled to answer thier TEXTS immeadiately they recieve them, even if they are walking in the street. Or even more worrying… Whilst driving a car. 

Yesterday I saw a woman turning left into a small road using here right hand on the wheel whilst looking down and texting with her left hand. An incredibly stupid thing to do in my opinion as when driving you need your full attention on actually driving. Like many more people these days it would seem she is addicted to texting.

NB: A woman just got two years in jail here in the UK for killing a pedestrian whilst driving and texting at the same time.
