I drove my parents to a hospital today for a consultation, and had to wait two hours. So I found a rather quiet place besides the hospital with some benches, it was a beautiful late summer morning and I decided to wait there. During this, several people came and went and sat on the benches, some the whole time who were obviously also waiting on someone. Now some of them had calls on speakerphone, so that all people in the vicinity clearly could hear all their calls, and one guy even watched a TV show on full volume over the speaker, a silly show I must say that mostly consisted of laughter and giggles. I’m really not anti-smartphone, in fact it mostly bothered me because I was quietly browsing the Dope on my phone, but isn’t that antisocial behavior? I’m not bothered by people making calls on speakerphone walking in the street, but in a rest area near a hospital? This even isn’t a get-off-my-lawn matter, the worst offender was a guy about twenty years older than me.
So what say you?
