This is a tad cynical, perhaps, but we do continue to be amazed at how much texting young people seem to do these days. It's almost like they are oblivious to the world around them. However, there is one advantage as you will see when you reach the bottom…
Of course, one of the benefits of all this texting is that innocent bystanders (people sitting at the next restaurant table, people sitting in the next bus seat etc.) don’t have to listen to these young people's inane telephone conversations anymore! So it's true -- every cloud does have a silver lining :-)
