Okay, this is amazing and I’m convinced you nailed the lifestyle of every single person who owns a smartphone.

My kids (they’re 23 and 18) can text while looking at me and having a conversation with me. I tell them that’s a skill they could put on their resume, especially the part where they’re confident enough in themselves to hit send without even looking at what they typed.

I wonder, are these time management and multitasking skills? It’s hard for me to claim they are addicted to their smartphones since their generation was born with them. While I’d consider it an addiction for my generation I think it’s more of a way of life for them.
