Last night I was in a public changing room at our local public pool, changing from swimsuit into street clothes. There was the usual mix of adults headed home after a workout, the lap swimming crowd, and the kids and parents associated with the learn to swim program. Alot of parents are there waiting for the kids to get dressed, not changing themselves because they are there only to help the kids along. Thats all fine, no problems, but I started noticing how many of these parents had their cells out, texting or web surfing while they waited.
I don't suspect anyone was taking pictures, this would be a much different post if I had any suspicion at all. But I have to wonder, should there be a restriction on cell phones in places where children are changing clothes? Has anyone seen one posted? I see the restrictions posted at medical offices, I always assumed it was for privacy and because the staff didn't like waiting for conversations to end. Does anyone here work in a clinic setting that restricts phones for privacy reasons?
