I was on the bus yesterday and a thought came to mind. I’ve thought about this before, but back then I didn’t have a blog to post it to! 😛
Ever notice someone talking to themselves? I bet you wanted to look at your friend and do the “he’s crazy” gesture.
Ever notice someone talking on a cellular phone? I bet you didn’t even look twice at them.
So here’s my question, what’s the difference?
I mean think about it. When you’re talking on a cell phone, all you’re really doing is talking to a little plastic box, from which you get an auditory signal back. If that’s socially acceptable, why is talking to yourself so … not?
It’s funny, if we asked for a show of hands of how many people talk to themselves, a lot of people won’t be truthful, but why? What’s the big deal? I don’t get it…
