Pokemon Go is a new game that has a ton of people in love with it. So much so that people are not paying attention to their surroundings. There have been car accidents, people have been hit bay cars, fallen off cliffs, I forget how high of a cliff, but still a cliff.
All of that is going on…well earlier this week, as I left my building to go to lunch, I pass this young Asian woman walking on the sidewalk, carrying two cell phones. She stops, spins around to find her Pokemon, moves to where they are, and begins to toss out PokeBalls to catch her Pokemon.
Later that same lunch break, about 7 minutes later, a young Indian woman veers out into the street as I am driving, she wanders in front of my vehicle, but somehow realizes she is in the street, and quickly darts out of the way. Now if you know me, you know I would not hurt anyone who has not put their hands on me, or someone that I love, but she didn’t know that. LOL. And I won’t lie, it was a little fun to scare her a bit.
Moral of the story, if you want to play your games, go for it, play them and have fun. Even if with two phones. But by all means, please be aware of your circumstances. Not everyone is going to be as nice of a driver as I am.
Be safe out there while playing.
