Not to long ago, if we saw somebody “walking and talking” aloud to themselves we would assume they’re maybe crazy!
But now in the age of hand-machines like the iPhone, we might think briefly,
‘Is he or she crazy?’
But quickly realize they are just “talking to someone while walking or even driving” with a foggy brain and glazed eyes. Yes, foggy, especially, if you drive and use your iPhone!
My grandson and myself almost got run over by a car that swirled over the sidewalk because the driver was glued to his/her phone.
Yes! We surely realize they’re not crazy!
No … No … No!
They’re more likely really semi-stupid!
