Cell phones have evolved from a means to communicate to sophisticated devices that we use to run our lives, even using them for work essentials. It’s time to stand up to people who criticize people for using their phones. Cell phones allow self-employed people to run their business everywhere, they give people chances to work outside of the office and to make connections both working and social. People should respect this and stop the harsh judging and comments.
- They’ve become such a scarily integrated part of our lives that I think we’d collectively struggle to go about our daily business without one.
- Back then a mobile phone was seen as a luxury, not a necessity, and you could easily leave it in your bag for the entirety of a day without even glancing at it.
- Over the last week or two I’ve seen increasing amounts of conversation from my peers around the judgement they’ve received for being on their phones in public.
“Personally speaking, my phone is my life; as a self-employed businesswoman it allows me to work wherever and whenever I need to, while maintaining essential social connections that (quite simply) stop me from cracking up. So why are we so unfairly judged by others for using one?”
