'This man came running up Baywatch-style, grabbed my hand and pulled me up. He saved my life. '

You KNOW that this guy broke out a slow-motion run for full effect.

This isn't the same vigilant lass who fell into a water fountain two years ago, is it?

*clicks on link*


Guess not.

A lot of people just can't do two things at once.  Doesn't matter what form of technology it is.  Hell, when I was in HS a kid in my class (who ended up playing basketball for a lower D1 school, go figure) crashed his car changing the station on the radio.

Meanwhile if you drive on a busy freeway on a workday you'll see people putting on makeup, eating, drinking, applying condiments, reading, writing - hell, it wouldn't shock me to see diapers being changed by a driver.  Coordination and multitasking are things that you have to actually work at, and if you can't then you don't belong even trying to do them.

I'm glad she's not dead but I can't say I'm not displeased this happened. I farking can't stand people who walk with their heads buried in their phone/tablets. What the hell is everyone talking about all day?

I bet she has a driver's license. And texts while driving.

I'm having difficulty making this out. Can someone possibly repeat the video several times while expanding it, slowing it down and circling said woman who was texting?

Nice to see their mainstream media broadcast "journalists" are just as smart as ours. I guess Jimmy Saville did legitimately fool everyone at the BBC. For 40 years.

a teenager who had a driver's license for just a short time had a mishap while driving distracted? that must be a first, Example Man. golly, and why do young inexperienced driver's pay top insurance premiums one wonders. sweet mystery of life, at last i found you...

A woman engrossed in her phone was zig zagging through the busy parking lot I was in today. It gave her a cloak of invincibility as we all tried not to kill her. She made it to her car without ever knowing how much disdain she inspired. So, I thoroughly enjoyed this video!

She was there to walk, text and chew bubblegum. But she was all out of gum.

I walk around reading a book so frequently that strangers in my building feel the need to report their shock to me in the elevator when they see me without a book. All it takes is a slight exercise of peripheral vision. If walking texters can't manage that, I kinda feel they deserve to be run over.

Guy's busily farking a Thai girl he picked up in a bar. Looks up to see her holding a comic book above her face, reading intently.

Gives new meaning to the term 'multi-tasking'. On the other hand, perhaps not, since it's the gent who's doing all the work.

Important stuff. You wouldn't understand. If you're so goddamned observant, it should be easy to get out of our way.

I like driving shopping carts into the Achilles tendons of dumbasses who stop in the middle of the aisle to text their friends, while nobody else can get by.

I have shiatty depth perception and am notorious for smashing my shoulders into the edges of doorways when I walk through because of it, but fark's sakes even I can navigate walking while looking at something on my phone.  I try not to but yanno, sometimes the naughty EMail attachments just can't wait.

I have heard that the polite version was the polite version. Cleaned up. Bowdlerized.

LBJ was a real toilet-mouth - interestingly enough, so was Nixon. We had to wait until our present Dear Leader to get another such swearer.

If this had happened in the US, there would be a lawsuit, payment for sustained injuries and an ugly fence erected to protect people from the water.

When I see someone texting and crossing the street/parking lot/etc, I always hope a car will come by where the driver is texting while driving.

To be fair, if this is where I think it is (The Mailbox) then there is a long flight of steps, then a couple of yards of pavement, then canal. It is hard to spot that the pavement ends at night, even if you are looking.

I can text and drive at the same time so I'm getting a kick...
My Plantronics headset plus my Samsung Focus Flash allows me to hear incoming texts and speak my outgoing texts while my phone is in my pocket. I can have a lengthy conversation via text with someone without ever touching my headset or my phone.

Do you pretend to be texting when you do it, then look up and say "Oh, I'm sorry I was putting on my robe and wizard hat"?

Personally, I am done with trying to be nice to those texters who refuse to remember there is reality and they are in it. I just keep on walking. If they slam into me, I hope they have fun (6"1 285lbs. former defensive lineman in school). I am no longer altering my life to accommodate rude jerks who think I should be awed by their self-induced importance in their social circle. You can either watch what you are doing in occupied public spaces, or you can enjoy hitting the pavement... hard. And if you break your precious phone in the process, I guess you should not have been using a delicate electronic device in such a place. Shame... I bet it was expensive.

Good, farking moron deserves it. All for a farking text to her boyfriend? She couldn't farking stop walking for 5 seconds? THIS lady was smart enough to graduate a journalist? What a farking laughable joke.

What a stupid farking bimbo. Is a boyfriend such a big deal you HAVE to TEXT while not looking where you're going? What the fark do you have a PHONE for if you can't farking CALL them instead of texting? How farking stupid is that? You can call and actually hear their voice, or...you can type on a tiny keyboard and fall into water.

I don't get it, I really tried to. I tried to get in on the mystery that is texting. It's farking ridiculous. What is so bad about hearing the person talk? Why have a phone otherwise? Are younger people really that collectively stupid?
