Recently I was in New York City for a wedding. We took a taxi from the hotel to the ceremony. Upon entering the back of the cab, there was a television set. Seriously! In fact, we took four cab rides and in each cab there was a television set mounted to the back of the front passenger seat. Why in the world would anybody want to watch television when sitting in the back of a cab in New York City?

Television sets can be found at gas stations, banks and grocery store checkout lines. They are popping up all over business establishments.
I find it insulting. Yes….I said insulting! I don’t need my mind occupied with television everywhere I go. I purposely have to direct my gaze elsewhere. I bet you think, no big deal, just look away. However, it’s basic human nature to look. When I’m on line at the grocery store and see a television set right in my face, I have to turn my body in a different direction and not look up, especially because “mostly negative news” is on.
I don’t watch television at home. Mostly because I am too busy and have a lot going on in my life. When I’m out and about, I don’t need the constant chatter of a television set in my brain. I am perfectly capable of creating my own chatter. I recommend that you do the same. TURN OFF THE TELEVISION SET! And direct your gaze elsewhere if around one.
