Madison Fontaine's curator insight, October 1, 2013 10:23 AM

This article explains an issue that many people, especially the younger generations, face everyday. The author of the article states that so many people can't even hold a conversation without checking their email or reading text messages off of their mobile devices. The author has a strong opinion that not being able to put your cell phone down to simply hold a conversation is rude and "not cool". The article basically eplains that when you are holding a conversation, especially if you are in a meeting, you should give the other people your full attention, not your cell phone.
