Singaporeans hit by mobile phone syndrome

Mobile phone is a must to bring wherever we go, without it, I'll feel unsecured!

A MAJORITY of Singaporeans are constantly thinking that their mobile phones are ringing, reported Sin Chew Daily. It said that a random survey of 50 people found that some 80% of them suffered from the mobile phone syndrome. They would check their mobile phones incessantly to see if they were ringing or if there were any missed calls or messages.

A psychiatrist blamed this syndrome on stress.

“Such people should learn to relax to avoid stress taking over their daily life,” said the psychiatrist. The psychiatrist advised sufferers to switch off their mobile phones or avoid answering their phones for a period of time.

Nanyang Siang Pau reported that the National Union of the Teaching Profession (NUTP) has urged the Government to ensure teachers assigned to teach reproductive health and social education next year are well trained.

It quoted NUTP secretary-general Lok Yim Pheng as saying that this was to ensure the teachers were well-equipped.

“Sex education is a sensitive topic and the teacher concerned must send the right message. If the message is misconstrued, parents may sue,” she added.

While the gender of the teacher teaching the subject was not important, Lok said the Government just needed to ensure that there were enough teachers.

Imagine you are on holiday, when suddenly found that your mobile phone has lost its way, how would you feel? I won't mind if they are only photocopiers. LOL!
