THE MOBILE PHONE………..

(Solidarity Support Challenge Day 30)

The mobile phone, how much it has to answer for, yes of course it has it’s good points, in an emergency it is there, instant contact with a service we may urgently need, fire police ambulance etc., It also can help to find us, if we have the misfortune to be lost or taken somewhere against our will it can and is a wonderful tool, that can be used. And of course, the obvious we can call people and keep in touch with our loved one’s, work companion’s etc.,

But, the other side of this little item is how it is stopping human one to one communication, you must of noticed this in your everyday life, where ever you go, people have an attachment hanging from their ear and happily are talking to themselves while they drive, shop, cook, read anything and there it is, ever present.

 image phone familyThe family unit, I think are suffering greatly, a normal family meal has turned into a challenge of phone’s and normal family talking, Once upon a time….this was the time that families would sit together around a table and would discuss the day that each member would say how their day had gone and if any problems were on the horizon, school wise or work, general chit chat in a family way, and now we have to say “They were the day’s” …….. Is this really possible, I know that some families have a no phone policy at the table, but at times this only cut’s the time down, as the younger and not so young one’s leave the table to get back to the phone.images phone relationships

Relationship’s – How do they get of the ground, the above picture really is a reality, you see it everyday, sitting at a cafe, a restaurant, walking in the park, romance has gone, how do you get to know someone in a three way relationship !!! The bottom line is, they don’t, I think some even get married and don’t know really who the other person is, if, they are suffering from complusive phone disorder, they need to put the phone away, pay more attention to people around them, and what’s more there is an APP available for this, it is called RESPECT………. is’nt that amazing.
images phone einsteinNow how could this great man have know that, how right he was, are we allowing this phone crazy generation to become idiots, what does your phone mean to you, could you live without out it,  how did we cope without this little helpful or not so helpful tool before, I realise that this is a doubled sided coin, so maybe the magic word here is moderation !! Can we do this ?

  1. Love Albert Einstein’s quote! And yes…technology is a double sword. Can I live without my phone?…yes, for a few days at a time.

    I’ve only really begun to see the power of what phones do these days. It’s cool to show people stuff you find funny or interesting. I guess there needs to be a balance. don’t think phones should be allowed at meal times unless it is an emergency. With me and my partner sometimes we just are sitting together or chilling and have a natural non talking moment and we may both have a nosy at our phones. It’s like a comfortable silence moment if that makes sense. But I think it is so rude of you meet up with a friend or someone and all thety do is look at their phone.

    I couldn’t agree more. The phone compulsion has become so serious, people can’t even have a conversation without multiple interruptions – An incoming call; a text…
    I would extend that to social media as well. I have read that many people only have online relationships. I think the word “relationship” is rather loosely used in this context: Something so important requires real, live, in-person interaction.

    I took my social media apps off my phone. There was a time when the little LED on it would blink incessantly from my social media accounts. The world is now a peaceable place. If I want to engage, I can do so quietly, for a while, in front of my computer.

    We have a rule around our dinner table, no phones no technology. And I love that we sit and talk, catch up on each others days and focus on each other. Then usually we retreat to our devices again, ha! 🙂 Phones do have their purpose, no doubt about that, but it’s up to us how much we want them to rule our lives. Great post.

    Exactly! I saw a great idea for forcing your loved ones not to check their phones during a night out: Everyone places their phones (face down) on a pile on the table at a restaurant. Whoever checks their phone first, gets to pay for dinner!
