The age of communication

These days it seems that everyone is in a constant state of communication. If people are not talking with someone face to face they are on their mobile phone, be it texting or calling. However there is something unusual I have discovered from eavesdropping on the phone calls of random strangers…they are usually arguing with someone on the other end.

Yes, it seems that this increase in ease of communication has merely resulted in more confrontation in people's lives. People can now get into a confrontation on the bus, in the supermarket or at the hair dressers. And with Confrontation Waiting people can even interrupt one confrontation to complete another before returning to the original one.

Modern communication technology does seem to be a classic rose, only people are too busy holding the thorns and they have forgotten to smell the petals. If people want happier lives maybe the solution is to simply turn your phone…off.
