Actions have consequences. Just read the opening lyrics of the 1958 hit from the Coasters –

Take out the papers and the trash
Or you don’t get no spendin’ cash
If you don’t scrub that kitchen floor
You ain’t gonna rock and roll no more

In today’s world, the lyrics might read

Put down the phone and look ahead
or you could end up hurt or dead
Keep that device put in its place
and slow down, this ain’t no race
