Blog Quote #533

Here's Blog Quote #533...

"No one knows how to be where they are."
-Lewis Black-

Does this sound familiar to anyone? With all the cell phones, I Pads, texting, Blackberry's and other high tech stuff going on... is anyone really where they are( mentally)?  
Can you say multitask. 

Are people clearly tuning in-- to the conversation at hand,  or is their mind in 3 different places?
Info overload anyone? Is the world moving a bit too fast?
Are we over computerized and digitized?

Anyone have thoughts on this?

I have some:
Slow down and be present where you are. 
Give your undivided attention (and RESPECT) to the people you are with, or excuse yourself from their company. 
Listen- with two ears and two eyes.

It's called common courtesy. Something that perhaps, our society is getting away from a bit too much. And the ironic thing is that most of the 'stuff' that's diverting out attention- really isn't that important in the grand scheme of life.

Let us all pull in the reins a bit on these machines, and get back to some basic common sense and courtesy. Be present where you are. Certainly you'd appreciate it, if others gave you the same treatment. 

That's my view...what say you?
