I Forgot My Phone.

Thursday, September 19, 2013


Incredibly accurate or a bit exaggerated? I’m not certain, but ever since I watched this little short, I can't stop wondering about it. Ah, one thing for sure, it would be pretty sad if people nowadays missed out on real experiences by recording every moment on their smartphones, wouldn’t it? Thoughts? xo

P.S: And on table phone talk.
P.P.S: Plus a few little moments:)

It's a true representation from my point of view. True and sad. With all the smartphone comforts we forget how to enjoy moments. Jill

This hit home...for all the wrong reasons...

It is probably a tad over exaggerated, BUT really representational. I have a few friends that will focus more on their iphone than me and other friends when we're hanging out. It drives me CRAZY! I try not to let it suck me in, but if I am I make sure to apologize.

I think it is almost on point which is kind of sad.

Saw that a while ago. I find it pretty accurate.
I once overheard a phone conversation in the subway where a woman called someone to tell that person to put the rice on the stove because she´d be home in 10 minutes.

I find that ridiculous.

Did we starve before cellphones? Don´t think so.

I find my trusty iPhone pretty convenient but I also always have it on mute at home on weekends relaxing on the couch. You have to unplug or you´ll go crazy!

My two cents ;)

I'm a little on the fence about it. I DEFINITELY get peeved when I'm trying to talk to someone and they have their face in their phone. But when something special is happening, I enjoy taking a picture or a video. It's fun to share those moments with friends who weren't there, or look back on them when you're missing that person you were with.

I think that part of the video is a little extreme, but the rest I can get on board with...and it makes me sad.

I can't wait to check out your post now, tiffany!

Katie, me too. I always make sure to apologize too.

Jessica, sad indeed!

How interesting, Martie! I like the idea of having your phone on mute at home.

Very good point, Kristi!

i've experienced this so much. usually i'm the only person without a smartphone in the the group of friends i have and i sometimes want to throw their phones on the ground when i'm having a conversation with them but they're not looking at me.

it's always nice to take pictures and save memories, but i use my camera for that. when it's you on your phone constantly texting or checking social media, you miss out on the making those memories.

Me too, Aubree. I use my camera for taking photos, not my phone:) I love your comment so much.
