On Saturday, AOL reported that smartphones reduce accident headaches because they dramatically speed up fender bender estimates. Instead of waiting for days for an estimator to come around, one can take full videos of the accident and send them in right away. Convenient, right?
It's a shame that this article didn't mention how many accidents would be reduced if people didn't use their smartphones in their cars in the first place. Despite several laws in several states being made to prevent smartphone driving accidents, people still lift their smartphones to their ears to talk when driving. Worse of all, they still text and drive.
But the car isn't the only place where the smartphone ruins lives. The amount of people hit by cars has increased over the past five years due to people walking, texting, and not paying attention to the cars coming at them when they are obviously looking at their smartphones. What a crazy way to die!
How many of you have ever gone to the movie theater, become engulfed in a movie scene, and then see a bright light from someone's smartphone interrupt your experience? The Alamo Drafthouse, a new chain of movie theaters, specifically condemns texting and will have no problem kicking you out if you text. Perhaps you can then go to the gym and lift weights. Then, you can continue to annoy people with your awful behaviors.
How many of you have ever gone to a 24 Hour Fitness or Golds Gym in order to do a weightlifting workout. It's already crowded enough. Still, you want to get some bench presses in. But wait! Three of the benches are already being used--or are they? All three of the gym rats are texting in between their sets. At the rate they are going, it will take them at least a half hour to finish three sets.
If you are not angry by now, we are going to list the five worst smartphone behaviors. Can you think of any more? Tell us in the Comments section.
