I have been leaving mine home as much as I can. I am on demand enough for work that when I am not on, I toss it and run away.
Seriously, though. I resent being that dependent for directions driving, needing to know the effects of drinking seven shots of whiskey on a 98-pound body, how to milk a camel. Useful stuff. Yes. You know what I am talking about.
I stopped using Waze and even though I sometimes get lost in the backstreets of Washington, DC, it has been refreshing to not need it. I have a home on the Shore of Virginia and I purposely don't have internet over there. I never have. It is a place where you go to get away from all of this and I love it. People need downtime. Young people don't even know how to communicate face to face. They do best texting.
I saw a couple on their honeymoon on my last cruise before COVID. Remember real life? They sat across the table texting each other. I swear to God. This is too sad to make up. Maybe they were sending each other fantasy text or something, but, texting?? They got in a fight about it, which they made public. Really?
Throw down your device and get out with people for God's sake.
