WORLDWIDE DISEASE

LIFESTYLE by KRISS on 29 january 2017

WORLDWIDE DISEASE Are mobile phones the instrument of the devil on this planet ? I sometimes really seriously wonder ! Let alone our western societies where people are so much stuck to their phones that some even get themselves killed inadvertently.
Let alone richer Asian societies where there are signs on the floor at airports to remind people to watch their steps instead of their phones.

I am talking about Cambodia, a dirt poor country where kids beg instead of going to school, a country where we were told $500/month wage would be that of a minister.
And even there, I see too many people stuck to their phones, at every level of society, from the workmen on the street to the policemen as in this picture.

And what do they do ? They send emojis to their friends on Facebook ! Man you have got to be kidding me ! But I am not, this is the ugly truth, I joked about it with a few Cambodians we met and they agreed most of them would rather skip one or many lunches rather than putting down the phone.
I wasn’t able to capture them all but Kate risked it with this police officer and I am glad she did !
