Walking and texting. It's an epidemic that affects all of us. People bump into poles, cars, each other. People get startled and misspell words. It's almost too tragic to think about. Fortunately Improv Everywhere is here to help.
Until we get enough seeing eye dogs to go around, we'll have to make do with seeing eye people. Just hang on to the leash and text to your heart's content. Your seeing eye person will guide you through crowded streets and alert you to any danger, all while you merrily text anyone and everyone. Go ahead, knock yourself out (figuratively, the seeing eye person prevents that from literally happening).
Yet another problem solved by good samaritans with orange vests and leashes.
