Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

My dad is fucking obsessed with Facebook, and I hate it. He's distancing himself from the family because he's so absorbed in his phone. It's at a point where he turns on a show and then immediately gets on his phone, but then complains when he misses stuff or doesn't understand what's going on. I don't even bother watching movies with him anymore. He used to walk me and my mom out for work, but more than a few times we've had to just leave because he couldn't put his phone down to even say bye. Sometimes he doesn't even notice that we leave, and he'll call and say "When did you leave? I didn't even know you guys were ready to walk out." And we tell him numerous times "Hey, we have to go." "Are you walking us out?" "Are you coming out to smoke?" "We're going to be late." And he just answers with "Hold on." "Just a minute." "Let me just finish this post." That's if he even answers at all. Usually he doesn't even hear us. And his temper has gotten awful. It was silent and my brother started talking to me, both of us being quiet, and suddenly my dad just shouts "Shut up! God, do you ever stop talking? Can't you see I'm trying to do something?" He also complains that he never has time to do anything. And I'm just sitting here thinking 'You know, if you'd ever put your fucking phone down, you'd have plenty of time.' He's disabled so he can't work and I know he's lonely cause he has no friends, but GOD. Make some friends. Real friends, not that pothead loser down the street who's a bad influence on you. Maybe actually try going out with Mom and working out with her instead of bitching that she never spends time with you. Why would she want to? All you want to do is sit around with football/basketball on and not even watch while you get on Facebook. She doesn't want to be a fat Facebook addict. And stop fucking texting me when I'm two feet away from you just to send me stupid memes. Just show me the damn screen! Sorry for ranting, but I'm just so fucking done. We all are.

  • I didn't read the whole thing to be honest - sorry for that. But I read the first few sentences and... you know that smartphone addiction is a thing? I think you should treat the subject like you'd treat an alcohol addiction.
