I was peacefully doing homework in between class when it happened. A student, who seemed about my age, was hollering to himself about his day. While the rest of us sat peacefully and respectively at our seats passing the time in between class, this student thought that he had the right to broadcast his experiences and thoughts throughout the hallway.
That was when I saw it. His phone was lying on the table beside him recording every word that came out of his mouth. Apparently, he was texting someone. He was multitasking just like everyone else in the hallway - in the most obnoxious way possible.
Technology is great. It has allowed us to advance in efficiency, in the science and medical worlds, and so many ways we would have never imagined just a few short years ago. At the same time as it helps us, it hinders us in just as many ways.
What technology do you believe we would be better without?
