So Much (Mobile) Anger

from the can't-let-go... dept

My latest writeup for TheFeature focuses on a variety of stories showing that mobile phones seem to bring out a ridiculous level of anger in people when people are told they cannot use their phones. The latest example is a woman who attacked a flight attendant for telling her to stop making phone calls during a flight. This isn't the first case like that however - and mobile phone rage seems to be showing up in many places. While it may just be a case of withdrawal from mobile phone addiction, at some point people are going to need to learn to lighten up.

    Re: Most noteworthy to me

    So let me get this straight... Vietnam is a good place to raise children, but the USA is not... And this is due to the fact that flight-attendant-slapping teenagers do not go to jail in Vietnam? Did I get that right?
