A Waste of Time

There are things in life that we do, that we think are a waste of time. I have one friend who wherever he goes, he’s glued to his phone. Our phones are great for making plans and talking to friends. After a while though, I don’t understand why someone would need their phone so much. It was Sunday night at around eight-thirty and we were watching Crazy Rich Asians. We had never seen it before so we were excited. As the movie started, I turned to see one of my friends intently watching the movie, while the other, intently watched his phone. I asked him if he was enjoying his phone and he put it down and watched the movie. As the movie progressed I could see his eyes glued to his smaller screen. It annoyed me. I shouldn’t care about how people spend their time, but we were doing something as a group. I did care though, because everyone else was laughing and smiling when watching the movie and he had a blank face while on his phone. Later that night, when we were playing video games, if he wasn’t playing, he’d put headphones in and watch YouTube. He couldn’t go 5 minutes without his phone. When I asked him broad details about the movie the next day he couldn’t name anything. I feel like phones take away from the social aspect of life. We’re so addicted that we feel excluded without our phones.We should enjoy the time we have together instead of the waste of time on our phones
