While no one can deny the improvements to society brought about by phones and tablets, certain things concern me, or maybe I am just a good ol luddite. 1. The demise of cash. I find it bewildering the number of people who use a card to buy a single cup of coffee or a pint. It's especially annoying when their card or phone ferks up and you have to wait while they get it fixed. 2. Is it just me or is handwriting, spelling and grammar becoming a quaint old custom ? Acronyms and abreviations seem to be on the march mainly due ( I believe ) to social media chat boards, predictive text on phones. Poor spelling and grammar does boil my pi55. 3. Can people not even put their phones down when walking in the street, stepping off a pavement or even in a bar/club? There you are. My beefs . . . what are yours ?
