Chatting with a new acquaintance on the train is an interesting experience in the year 2019.

Me: "So blah blah blah…"

Guy: "Yeah blah blah blah…"

*Both look at smartphones for 5 minutes.*

Guy: "Hey, so blah blah blah…"

Me: "Cool! Blah blah blah…"

*Both look at smartphones for 10 minutes.*

Me: "Oh, BTW, blah blah blah…"

Repeat for an hour.
