Look around. Maybe you’re at work, or school, the grocery store, a shopping mall, a restaurant or coffee shop. Chances are most people around you have their faces buried in a phone or some other device. That’s the world we live in and we not only choose to accept it but we’re also guilty of the behaviour ourselves. But there’s a time and a place for it, right? And there’s definitely a time and a place to put it away. Like holidays, for instance. Vacations or outings should be sacred, a time to unplug, and escape from the rest of the world. But not for teenagers. Oh, no, no, no, no, no.

Just ask David Baddiel.

The comedian recently posted a pic of his son sitting amid gorgeous surroundings. Not that he noticed or anything.

Look at him sitting there amidst all that beauty, those gorgeous rocks, with the waves crashing around him, not that he hears or sees or even smells any of it. Because all he can do is Snapchat. Or play Candy Crush. Or check his Instagram. Parents everywhere totally empathized with Baddiel and took to Twitter to share their own snaps of their kids ignoring what’s around them for the screen in their faces.

What a waste.

Priorities, DAD.

Those data rates, though.

At least he climbed it?

Sure.

This is SO two years ago.

Yawn.

Meh.

One day he might appreciate what people would pay for that kind of view.

Come ON.

Sigh.

Nope. NO excuse for this one.
