Nokia: Stop! Stop right there!
Sony: What?! (suddenly stopping walking, and looking up from his cell phone)
Nokia: Don’t you know that it is hazardous to text on your cell phone while you walk? Especially if you are walking in that speed. If you hit something, you might break your neck.
Sony: I consider it hazardous if I don’t go and meet up with my girlfriend soon, and fatal if I don’t text her now and tell her that I will be slightly late. Speaking of breaking my neck, she will do exactly that if I make her wait. (walking away texting and… bumping into a mailbox) Ouch!
Nokia: See. I told you. You know that in Britain, six million people were injured last year colliding with lamp posts, bollards, and litter bins while trying to walk and text on mobile phones at the same time? People pick up injuries ranging from bruises to fractured bones. I suggest you concentrate on walking if want to walk that fast.
Sony: You can’t blame me. You see, we modern people like to juggle several things at once, and since walking do not require thumbs, we use them to transmit text messages. It’s just a perfect use of time.
Nokia: I see, you don’t think that walking requires eyes. Maybe you should get a guide dog to steer you away from street obstacles. And maybe some brain surgery to help you think straight.
Sony: See, as a taxpayer, why do I even have the need to navigate through obstacles while I walk? The government should not put things on pavements! Don’t they know it’s dangerous for pedestrians? Do you know the number of injured people? Six million in only one year!
Nokia: I believe I have just told you that information. But there are really a staggering number of clumsy people. Actually, some kind folks are trying to stem the flow of ailments by wrapping protective pads around lamp posts to protect dozy phone users like you.
Sony: See, that’s an ingenious idea. Wrapping everything up and the world will be a safer place.
Nokia: And a very ugly place. Why can’t you people just walk with your heads up?
Sony: I told you, it’s about how to use our time efficiently. You see, in the modern society, things move in a swift pace and everyone is running out of time….
Nokia: I know, just like you are running out of time right now. I know your murderous girlfriend is waiting, but maybe you wish to tell me some more about your need to text and walk at the same time? Sony! Sony! Don’t run so fast! I would really love to hear some more of your idiotic theories. Sony!!
