This is not gonna be an “old lady Becky rants about technology,” because I’m sure you can tell I’m pretty down with things. I can out-text any young punk, and if there is a good selfie opportunity, I am one of the first to pull out my phone.
But I feel like I know when enough is enough, which “kids these days” don’t know.
Case in point? I was sitting at a cafe writing. It was a beautiful rooftop cafe with an amazing view of the ocean. Everyone was up there taking pics and selfies. No biggee. I had taken a few when I arrived then got to work writing.
I can block people out pretty easily when I’m writing, but my brain is still processing what is going on around me. At one point my brain woke me up to notice the people next to me. They were taking selfies and had been at it awhile. No biggee, back to work.
It went on for almost 25 minutes before they finally stopped taking selfies and sat and drank their coffee. (They never really put down their phones though.) I’ve seen a lot of stupid and silly selfies in my life, but this takes the cake as the most epic selfie session I have ever witness. I hope to god I never see another.
