I have family visiting from Venezuela and they made a comment, “Americans have a smartphone sickness”.
Everywhere they look people are staring at the phone in the palm of their hand and not interacting with the people around them.
Last night at a restaurant I looked around and saw what looked like a young couple, both sitting at the table silently, looking at their phones. I know I am guilty of doing the same thing.
At another table there was a family and both parents were looking at their phones ignoring their small children.
The other night Celia and I had a date night and we agreed to leave the phones in the car while went to dinner. We both had such a pleasant and relaxing time we decided to do this more often.
What do you think? Do we have a smartphone sickness?
