When at work you must stay off ALL social media.  Leave personal cell phones in the locker room or out of reach. 

Maybe people would stop carrying around their cells so much if they went back to making cell phones like the first one I ever saw a doctor carry, back in the 80's.

It was about the size of a lunchbox with a cord coming out of it to a headset and the doctor carried it by a strap over his shoulder.

We all thought that it was soooooooooo cool!

I remember those things! Horrible reception but at least it was practically impossible to lose the stupid thing. I remember mine from the 90s with prepaid minutes and was literally only for a real emergency.

Then in the early 2000s the cell phone companies seemed to be in competition to see who could make the smallest phone and therefore the easiest to lose everywhere, eaten by the folds of the car, the home furniture, bed linen, etc.

Then texting came about. I remember going on my laptop to google the lingo to decode a text from my coworker. If they had a question, just call me! This was around 2010.

Now everyone has a smart phone that has become a hemorrhoid growing from their palms or something. Always on it, always texting, forgot/never learned how to talk on a telephone, etc. Go to a restaurant and look at the tables around you- the people are usually pretty quiet and their all on their smartphones....not interacting with each other (or maybe their texting/using Facebook in the same room????) I don’t get it. I find it rude.

Social media wouldn’t be so bad if it was only a way to keep in touch with friends and family. Unfortunately, some people are so into themselves that they feel like posting every aspect of their life for the whole world to read...and then get suicidal when they read responses to their posts that they don’t agree with. Honestly, I’m too busy to care who ticked who off today. If it’s important, call me, otherwise, I’m not going to know about it. I’m not being insensitive. I’m just not using FaceBook to keep up with everyone else’s person problems.
