I absoulutely hate (HATE) when my father talks on his cell phone for hours on sunday. First of all,85% of the week he never sees us, and on Shabbos he rests. on sunday, our “family day” all parents can think of is there work or their friends? Not that i mean to be very disrispectful, but teenagers are known for being opsessed with cell phones but what about the parents? Before you talk on the phone for an hour straight, think about your kid and your wife too. Thanks in advance.
i’m surprised to see that no one commented on the above.
i totally agree with people being on the phone on the expense of being present for their family members or friends
It’s become more of an issue over the last 11 years, especially since the advent of the smartphone which barely even existed when the OP posted. And he was correct even then when very very few people had smartphones, that was barely introduced a year before.
Looks like someone found the “threads with no responses” list…
