Am I the only one who sees this when I am out shopping or driving or eating. I’m sure that those of you who read this will agree that service, social politeness and community have pretty much gone by the wayside in the last decade or so. Who hasn’t walked up to a counter to buy something only to encounter the checkout person talking on their cell phone the entire time, sometimes not even acknowledging you or passed someone on any highway going 45 mph in the fast lane because they had to flip their omelette while shaving and texting.
What’s worse is we don’t complain. Why? Cause it’s so pervasive. Standards have been systematically lowered so fast and so low we just place our stuff on the counter, pull out our phones and secularize ourselves as well.
I think Modern Life needs an anthem. How ’bout closing by letting the spudboys do the talking.
