Here’s What to Do With Your Phone
At least half the time I finally pass people who are ten miles under the speed limit on the highway, I can see them holding a phone and staring at it, texting or speaking. I doubt that they are engaged in life saving conversations about brain surgery, or landing a plane with both pilots incapacitated, or directing emergency vehicles to a fire.
Why don’t I think that may be the case? Because they’re simply not bright enough to be in such positions,
Whenever someone I’m with starts staring at their wrist or takes a cell phone out of a pocket and says, “I need to take this,” I walk away. Obviously, if it’s a legitimate emergency they need privacy with no distraction. And if it’s not, then I do.
