My girlfriend runs a community acupuncture clinic. One of her biggest challenges is not putting pins into people’s bodies. It’s getting them to put away their phones during the treatment.
I have a similar challenge with phones. Is it possible to go to a concert without having the view eclipsed by phones… all night long? First, a few insults;
- are a terrible photographer
- are even worse at video (horizontal, please)
- are not missed because you are unavailable for 90 minutes
- are never going to have your existential loneliness satisfied by a post, tweet, like, or share. If your life sucks, then the least you can do is enjoy the music.
Put the phone away. I’ll give you five bucks if I have to.
