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.
