Texting and Walking???

Texting and Walking???

the road during drive time?? Well, on my way back to my apartment on Tuesday night, a gentleman was standing in the middle of the road texting and walking at the same time. What I thought was particularly odd was that the individual DID NOT MOVE when I ended up right behind him with my car. It literally took about 15 seconds for the gentleman to turn his head and realize that I was there!

FINALLY, the gentleman did move. But seriously, is this the wave of the future? This isn’t the first time that I seen this happen before my eyes. It’s particularly terrible in the big cities. This might not be a very big deal to you, but when someone is standing in the road, directly in front of a moving vehicle and texting while not paying attention to what is going on in their surroundings is a serious problem.

Has this ever happened to you before? I mean, had I not been paying attention to the road I could’ve easily hit this individual.
