I see a contract in her future as a spokesperson.
Folks glued to their cell phone and PDA screens standing or walking anywhere and everywhere as if there is no other world happening around them. Some will stand and block one side of a hallway making others go around them. Some will pace back and forth making others dodge them. Some are quite animated and can occupy the space of several people while spinning, bending and flailing their free arm. I long for the old days when the worst I'd encounter in a long hall was three large people walking abreast very slowly and chatting among themselves. All I'd need to do was slow down and be patient and didn't have to walk defensively to avoid collisions.
just did. It does happen that way, and much too often. Hard to call it rudeness on the part of some because it's done without thinking. Sitting on a couch with a Bell handset to my ear I probably used the other arm for gesturing, but the same situation in a public place gives rise to worse behavior.
Well, when I'm dictator of the world it won't happen!
