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.


Hello world!

Well that’s me into the world of blogging!!  Quite simple to get started here on Word Press and free as well!

On my blog I will be writing mainly about merchant navy and shipping based articles, story’s and anecdotes. But I will be posting travel articles and other topics as they come to mind.

With regard to my life at sea over the last 40 years, this has always been very interesting. A million different things have happened to me that people ashore find hard to believe when I tell them.  One person overhearing a story that I was telling to a friend in a restaurant , leaned over and said:  “Give over mate. You never did that”   But I did.  Story’s I tell are all true. I don’t have to make any up.

Anyway watch this space!  I promise some very interesting and amusing articles .
