Dear Humans: Stop Being So Awkward And Just Ask For A Photo
We are slowly entering an era where kids come up in this world only knowing life + smartphone. You know what we did in my day when we said we'd meet somebody on the corner. We'd go to the corner. And if our friend didn't show up, we'd stand there and wait for them! And if they never showed up, we'd go home. We couldn't text them, or call them, or YO them, or Snapchat them to say, hey, where are you? Maybe they were dead. We didn't know. Also, we couldn't settle arguments by looking things up instantaneously, and when we took pictures, we had to take them to a store to get developed only to find out our thumb was over the viewfinder on every shot.
Anyway, maybe it's because kids today spend most of their time looking at phone screens, or computer screens, or TV screens, and not enough time actually interacting with people, but they seem awful at interacting with real people, face-to-face. Exhibit A: These kids going nuts to see Paul Pierce at Western Kentucky University, and reacting by whipping out their phones and taking a selfie... in front of him.
Not with him. Not with his permission. Just sort of, in his general direction:
Paul Pierce seems like a good dude -- I can't say for sure, I've never met him. But neither have these kids, as far as I'm concerned. Why not ask him for a photo? A picture with Pierce is infinitely better than one of your insane face with Pierce in the background.
Let's keep it real, people. Stop being awkward and obsessed with your Instagram feed and just have a conversation with the dude. Kirsten Dunst knows what I'm talking about.
