Don't Text While Walking: Lady Falls Into Lake Michigan While Text Messaging!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Authorities in Michigan said they pulled a 45-year-old woman out of Lake Michigan after she fell off a pier while text messaging.

St. Joseph police said Bonnie Miller of Benton Harbor was text messaging on her phone and was not carefully watching where she was walking when she fell Monday from the South Pier in St. Joseph."
UPI

People walking down the street and text messaging are like zombies, real zombies could be headed their way and they wouldn`t notice until one of the undead took a bite out of their ass.

I can`t chew gum and walk at the same time; I would never attempt to text message when I`m walking, I would probably run into a light pole.

I hope the frigid water brought Bonnie to her senses, and she will never text when she`s walking again. I bet Bonnie was more concerned about her cell phone than the risk of drowning.

The Fire Department, the Police Department, and the United States Coast Guard assisted in the rescue. Good God Almighty, this foolish woman should be billed for the rescue effort.
