For better or for worse, smartphones have changed the way we communicate.
Are you tired of seeing slack-jawed smartphone junkies staring at their phone screens and wandering around like zombies?
If you catch public transport, recently sat at a café, or walked down the street in any given town, you must have seen these ‘modern’ phone-o-philes. They’re the ones with hunched backs and ‘text-neck’ caused by looking down at their phones too much. They’re the ones you walk into at the top of the escalator because they’re too busy looking at their phone to notice that there are 50 people waiting to get off. The ones whom, when asked a question, will immediately defer to Google for the answer instead of using their own heads. They’ll invite you out for coffee, only to sit on the other side of the table taking photos of said coffee to post on Facebook for all their other ‘friends’ to see.
Like it or not, this behaviour is here to stay, so we may as well all get a laugh out of it, eh? Hopefully this collection of comics about the death of conversation helps bring out a few chuckles.
