As a child, my sister and I always sat around the kitchen table and had dinner together with mom and dad. This iPhone photo was taken several weeks ago, seeing it again instantly reminded me of how our devices and social media along with other sites have taken our attention to others away to some degree. Kinda sad…

  1. We used to sit at the table for all our meals too. It’s a great way to spend time together as a family and connect. One of my sisters still does this with her kids, but the other one not so much. It is kind of sad.

  2. I shudder to think of how these people will behave as they get older (although … some of them are already older). No social skills at all.

    • That’s a good point, Anneli. I’ve said this before, I am glad that I was born in 1960 because I feel like I am a part of the last generation of Americans who knew how America was in those years and truly gives a rat’s bum about what happens here. Yay for we Baby Boomers!

      Not all young folk today are dolts but so many have no social skills and care about nothing but themselves and finding the next party to crash. The world doesn’t work like this, children… And, on down the toilet goes my country!

      Well done, dolts, for putting old Joe in office who can’t walk the stairs of Air Force One without stumbling and can’t remember his lines during speeches. Oh, what about the lovely new fuel prices? Sorry for the rant…

    • It’s so ridiculous, Anita! I think that in time, humans will be born with their neck twisted forward and looking down, whay wait to get that device in the baby’s hand?

  3. It sure is sad. We will be out enjoying a meal or drink and almost every table they are looking at their phones instead of talking to each other. Social Media has a place and it’s not at the dinner table lol

    • I totally agree! Shall I call you Trum? I see people daily crossing our very busy busy intersections in the zebra stripes with face buried in phone. That’s a dangerous situation being so disconnected from your surroundings. A 20 ton truck has no mercy…
