My youthful memories are filled with phrases like “just sit still”, and “do you want me to turn this car around and go home?” I wasn’t an attention starved child, but I was easily bored and in constant need of mental stimulation. Car trips, plane rides, waiting rooms, and every other place that parents insist on taking children were my childhood nemesis.
If only I could have had Sesame Street on the go… Well kids today have that option, I mean parents have that option. Verizon has seen a much larger usage than expected in the ‘babysitting programming”, and there’s no mystery why that is. Heck, if I was stuck in line I’d rather watch Sesame Street than look at the back of someone’s head.
