We have friends visiting us in Florida. Their two teenage kids have their noses buried in their phones 24/7. At lunch (on the beach) today I said, 'hey, why don't we all put our phones away and take in this view?' The reply I got, from a 14-year-old, no less, was a sarcastic snicker and a 'yeah, right.' I couldn't help myself! I said if I'd ever have talked that way to my parents' friends I'd get a slap across the mouth. His reply? 'Try it and I'll call the cops.' Parents said NOTHING! Thank goodness they left ten minutes ago and they'll be someone else's problem.
