Mobile phone users lose the plot

Madam -- Has the mobile phone prevented people from speaking to each other? I always switch off my mobile when I am shopping. If the call is important, the person will phone back. I have noticed that people are addicted to their mobiles. They avoid eye contact and speak loudly into their mobiles. Have a lot of people lost the plot -- and are some of them speaking to themselves? There is nothing as therapeutic as a good chat and laugh.
