We see it all around us. We see it all the time. Whether it is when driving, on the subway, on the bus, or even while walking, we see people with phones in their hands. We see the eyes concentrated on the phone screen. We hear the instant ring or notification from the phone, and we are tempted to pull out the phone to see.
Technology is always advancing. Cell phones in particular now provide us with the access to calls, messages, emails, music, Internet, etc. Do we depend on technology too much? Are we too fixed to the cell phone screen instead of seeing what is around us?
We all dread the instance when our phones are almost out of battery. We even carry our chargers at times. The video shows a woman in a subway who freaks out when her phone dies. The woman displays a tantrum that only you would imagine toddlers to accomplish. Due to the fact that her phone ran out of battery, she starts crying and screaming, even tossing her shoe from her foot. Was the behavior a little too extreme? A lot of individuals would see it as a bit comical, but how common is that reaction? Are you somebody that would react in the same manner?
Perhaps the video collected and demonstrated just how much people are dependent or are obsessed with their phones. People need to look at what is around them and see for themselves what is beyond our little phone screen. It is a bit ridiculous that a grown individual would react in that manner shown in the video, but maybe it serves as a representation of the link of society and technology. And maybe when a cell phone battery dies our reaction will simply be, “Oh, my cell phone died. I will charge it at home.”
