Are Cell Phones Robbing Us?

Today I learned more about how to use my cell phone. It has so many abilities that I will probably never master. I think a phone is just that--a device to call people and answer calls. I don't text or surf, etc. I am only one step above those who don't have phones. As I walked around Costco this morning, I met up with a friend, Jan. She was on her phone. I said how lovely it was to see her. She waved at me. We went our separate ways.

In the past, Jan and I might have stopped and spent two or three minutes catching up with each other. If nothing else, we would have said hello as we passed by. Now, we always seem to be on the phone. It robs us from having real conversation. This morning I saw a friend who I haven't seen in a long while and I have no idea how she is doing. It seems quite sad to me.
