Just an observation

As class was letting out and the building's halls were filled with the crush of students with heads down looking at their phones, letting their backpacks carelessly slung over one shoulder repeatedly bump into those around them, I noticed a newish phenomenon. 

You know how etiquette says we should stay to the right and let people who are walking towards us stay to our left?  No more!  You know why?  Most of the people are righties, and students immediately whip their phones out, and use their right hands to maneuver through their phones.  This means they all drift to the left of the staircase or hallway.  Those of us on the right are like salmon fighting the constant currents.

Amazing what technology can change.
