Lack of communication

what happened to talking with the people around you? While sitting in the waiting room at my doctors office, I saw 4 people texting or playing games on their phones. They were one foot away from one another and were  just texting on their phones. They didn’t even look up at one another when they passed each other. I sat there staring at these people, wanting to make conversation with them, but I didn’t want to interrupt whatever they were doing. I kept my phone in my pocket so I could observe the world around me.  

Continuation: sorry doctor walked in room I had to just post real fast. 

Anyways. I understand that some people are not sociable. Some people don’t want to talk to other people. I am in a waiting room with only women in the room. Most women (as I have seen in my 30 some odd years as a woman) talk to each other. We are like chickens in a coop, chattering away. 

I see this type of behavior at restaurants as well. You sit down with your whole family and everyone is looking down at there electronic devices instead of talking to the person in front of them. 

Do you do that when you are our with friends?

Why has our society started to be this way? What happened to lazy afternoons talking on the porch? Or am I just still living that life instead of coming to the new age? I will admit I have looked down at my phone during s conversation and answered a text message, while still listening to the conversation at hand. But I put the phone down and look at the person talking to me. 

Help me out people. Please explain this to me.

I am a nerd. There I said it, it's out in the open now. I love Star Trek, Star Wars, Firefly, Doctor Who...and the list goes on and on. I also LOVE to play Dungeons and Dragons. I am the Dungeon Master of a game I run once a month with my friends. This website, my Facebook group, and my YouTube channel, are all out there to show you how I design a campaign and build my dungeons. I usually use Hirst Art molds to create and build my dungeons, however, I have been using foam board and random other objects you might think are trash to create items for our games. Four four weekends a month, I work on the story, the design, and putting the game together. I love that my friends can leave their lives behind for a few hours a month and just immerse themselves in my game. This page will just be blog posts describing things that happen in the games, things that happen while working on my builds, and other thoughts on our dungeons and dragons adventures.
