Prisoners get lots of time to get to know one another. We can’t imagine there being anything else to do, other than exercising, playing basketball, and reading the same book day in and day out. When this guy got out of prison, he was amazed by how uncaring and out of touch people were with each other.
We’ll admit that we all glue our noses to our phone screens, and that’s just how it’s been for the past several years or so. But to this guy, it was depressing. He went from an environment where he knew and spoke to a lot of people to an environment where people don’t communicate at all.
