Ugh, young moms and their phones... It's not even just them though, I've seen several older dads busily talking into their Blackberry (back when then were business phones...) with a kind walking beside them being completely ignored. Makes me sad really, poor kid.

This probably doesn't belong here but....

My daughter came back from holiday today and told us this story.
Two little girls had made friends and were in the paddling pool together, one was holding herself, the way kids do when they want to go for a pee, she whispers into her friends ear and her friend bellows out so it echoed around the pool area "do it in 'ere!"


My daughter said her mum put her head in her hands.

Playing games!? that a bit bizarre. If they were texting and messaging and stuff, it would still be rude, but not so unexpected. But playing games!? what are they 13??

Absolutely Jan. My husband was giving a lecture and I was sitting at the back and all the students were cruising their mobiles...I was shocked. Goodness knows why the schools dont have rules regarding mobiles...extraordinary.
