Teenage girls addicted to texting?
After a busy work week both my husband and I were anxious to get out of the house and go "do" something. It's been kinda cold so we thought a movie sounded like a good idea.
On Saturday night my hubby and I went to see the movie "Lovely Bones". The theater filled up pretty quickly. A young teen girl was seated right next to me. As soon as she sat down she began texting. We were only seeing movie previews so I thought no big deal. Well, then the movie began and the phone texting back and forth continued! Every time a text comes in or she texts the SCREEN LIGHTS UP! Are you kidding me?! You can't help but be distracted by the lit up screen and constant movements of up and down with the phone.
You'd think I have to say something after a couple of dirty looks. It was extremely annoyed. I bet you would be too. But here is the kicker...the teen girl in front of me and also to the left were all texting throughout the movie!
I'd have to stop watching the movie (therefore miss what I'd came there for) and go get someone to stop all the texting! Or tell them ALL to stop and be the "Bitch" of the movie theater.
My question is: Do teen girls have a texting addiction? I didn't see any guys in constant text mode. Can't they just turn off the cell phone and watch a movie???
Highly annoyed and really concerned about what is happening to teen girls.
Whew! Sorry about that...off my soapbox for now...
