This Would Be No Problem for a Geezer Like Me, of Course

An anti-social experiment   

Hat tip to Rick Robinson.

Let's seeeee.... Texting: You type in the words and they appear instantly on someone else's screen. I'd say that was a wonderful invention -- IF THEY HADN'T INVENTED THE TELEPHONE!!!

I don't need no stinking Facebook.

And I don't text.

Now get off my lawn.

I don't do Facebook either, but my girls (late teens to early twenties) are not only on it but they are also on Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter. They are surgically attached to their phones.

It's not just them, Deb. My sister is like that -at least when it comes to Facebook - and she is over 50.

It amazes me how addicted these kids are to social media on their phones. I do text, but rarely to anyone but Barbara. They call email old school communication. Do they have any idea what stamps a s envelopes are for. I wonder.

Stamps? Envelopes? What are these things you speak of?

Seriously, I had to mail the rent from here and it made me think how few checks I write these days and how rarely I mail anything, even bills. (I pay most of them online.)

When I said I don't text, I meant 'very often' as I text occasionally, when I get one from a family member on the West Coast, or from Jackie when she is unable to call for some reason.

A co-worker recently said that her daughter-in-law (a woman with three young children) is always the first person to comment on any of my co-worker's Facebook posts, it doesn't matter what time or where she is, within a minute of the comment being posted, the daughter-in-law responds (even if it's only to "Like" it). The co-worker said, "It makes me wonder who is looking after my grandchildren while their mother is busy commenting on everyone's Facebook posts!"
