It's Their Whole World-- Part 1

If you're like me, nothing is worse than going into a restaurant or bar and seeing just about everyone with eyes glued on their smart phones.  I've seen families of four sitting at a table and the kids both on theirs, then look over to their parents and guess what they are doing?

This is a really sad state of affairs in the world.

This past Sunday, the Chicago Tribune had two comic strips that got a chuckle or two from me.

TAKE IT FROM THE TINKERSONS by Bill Bettwy

We see five frames where a family of four is seated on and by a sofa.  You'd think perhaps watching TV,until you see everyone has a mobile device except the Dad, who has a remote.  The Mom and two kids never move.  The last frame has a fellow office worker asking the Dad "Did you do anything over the weekend?"  The Dad replies, "I spent time with the family."

Yeah, Right.  --RoadDog
