My thoughts exactly #11... But it's not so much society at fault.. As it is the governments and monetary economic system that we live in. For western civilization for the most part.

Ive gotta say, it does always irritate me when people mindlessly blame things on 'society'- its all I hear now. When will people realize that THEY are part of society?

Government and economics aren't the problem, it's the way WE and our peers (basically society as a whole) utilize/use them and how privately owned interest groups use them. What people need to realize is that all elected governments are a reflection of the people. Everyone's voice gets heard in the democratic motto, and through votes it does, and if you want to make your voice louder, there's ways to do that. Economics and governance are driving points in any society, any problem that arises is from form, not function.

38 couldn't be more right... When people say 'society' I say 'parents'. My children won't be touching social technology until they're 16... Plus all my life I've never been interested in TV. Hate if you must, but I'll be rich.

#24 I just love these "blame society" people. "Yea, it's society! That one over there!" *points* "Yea, me and my deserted island have no such problems. You don't see us texting during recitals; we're better than that."

Well maybe she has those obnoxious musical keys on her phone and she was actually just doing an improv to the song before bringing back the clarinet for the big ending. I call it: textissimo.

YDI. If she's too young, she shouldn't have a cellphone (at least during the concert); if she's a bit older, she has to get priorities right.

Also, OP deserves it for getting their daughter into the mindset she's in.

But it was her phone! Her phone I'd more important than anything! Don't you know that??? Gees, I bet you're one of those old prudes who's scared to send a text while you're driving. Pfffft... Whatever.

I would condone a face punch in this case. It's sad when one has to state 'sarcasm' in their comments because people don't know the difference. Or worse some people actually think that way.

I generally just assume the completely foolish comments are sarcasm as a buffer to the thought that the world will actually end up like the movie, Idiocracy...
