Smartphones have resulted in the downfall of society. Their easy access to the internet has allowed for this liberal hivemind that thinks everything that could go wrong is currently going wrong. I'm sick of seeing people constantly engulfed in their phones, with little regard to their surroundings. People have become more impatient, self-centered, and generally more cunt-ish since the rise of smartphones and mainstream social media. It's honestly become a fucking drug, everybody I know thinks they can’t live without one. It’s absolute insanity.
b-but muh apps!
Really think about what you actually need for a cellphone. The only time you should need GPS is on a long car trip. There's no reason why you should have to post your every move online. You don’t NEED constant access to the web, it’s just been there for so long that you forgot what it was like without it.
how will I look things up now?
Instead of constantly needing to look things up, just try using your head. Try and solve whatever problem it is you have on your own.
my work REQUIRES me to own a smartphone!
I highly doubt you can't get by with a laptop (and even that’s a stretch for a lot of things) and regular cellphone.
A cellphone should be an object, not your entire existence.
