Showing Me Where I Stand

 I was in a conversation recently with a person who was looking at their phone.  Well, it was sort of a conversation. I would talk to them and they would occasionally nod and say “uh huh.”  They continued to scroll through their social media feed and pretend to be in a conversation with me at the same time.  Sooner or later I gave up and walked away.  I am not sure they noticed. In that situation they did not “tell” me that I wasn’t important.  They showed me. And I think that might have hurt worse. Make sure you never miss an update!  Sign up for our VIP newsletter here.
