Today, I was getting ready to go out with my family. As I was putting my phone in my purse, my father told me I wouldn't need it because we were going to spend 'quality time' together. The entire time I was there, everyone was staring at their phone. I was the only one without one. FML

^I hate when people get judge and holier-than-thou about smartphones. I love that I can take such great photos on my phone, which is important because a lot of my close friends are moving. I also use it for school, internships, etc. I use it to schedule my entire life. I would be so disorganized without my phone. Just because you're content with not having a smart phone, doesn't mean that you're living a more fulfilling life.

You people don't seem to realize that 'zombie' is a relative term in this case. What she means is that we tend to act brain-dead when on our phones and all that jazz.


I hate when people say this. We can definitely use our phones too much, but it's not the end of the world. Getting occasionally distracted by a screen doesn't mean it's the apocalypse.

FYL because your family only played on their phones rather than family time. It is very sad that people cannot put away their technology long enough to spend time with those who will not be around forever. I wish the world would change, but I fear it will only get worse.....but I also want to point out that if the "FML" was that you had to leave your phone at home, oh well.

I actually didn't have my phone for 9 months one time and I finally realized how bad it is nowadays. When I went to hang out with friends it was like I wasn't there half the time because they were on their phones
