Jenta på venteværelset

 
Bare gå inn og vent i mens, sier den hyggelige, unge damen i resepsjonen, – så kommer legen og henter deg når han er klar. Hun peker på en sofagruppe på andre siden av glassveggen, og smiler som om hun prøver å si “det går nok bra, skal du se”. Jeg tar meg i å tenke at hun ikke er legen min, antakelig er hun assistenten hans, men av en eller annen grunn gjør ansiktet og stemmen hennes at jeg tror henne likevel. Jeg går inn.
 
I det lille venteværelset er alle vegger av glass, unntatt veggen som vender ut mot gaten. Her er det til gjengjeld et stort vindu hvor morgensolen står rett inn. Midt på gulvet er det to sorte skinnsofaer som står mot hverandre. Mellom sofaene er det et lavt salongbord i glass, og i det ene hjørnet av rommet står en automat med vann og kaffe. Jeg fyller et plastbeger med kaldt vann, og går mot sofaen som vender mot vinduet. På bordet foran meg ligger det diverse magasiner. Jeg registrerer raskt at det finnes verken tegneserier, bilblader, klokkeblader eller noe annet som er interesserer meg, kun magasiner om helse, og hvordan vi kan leve med sykdommer. Jeg lar bladene ligge.
 
Rett over meg, i den andre sofaen, sitter en ung, mørkeblond jente og stirrer på mobilen sin. Hun enser meg ikke, og jeg setter meg ned uten at vi hilser på hverandre. Hun trykker raskt på mobilen med den høyre pekefingeren, og jeg kan høre det klikker hver gang neglen treffer glassflaten. Det vakre ansiktet ser alvorlig ut. Munnen er lukket.
 
Hun stopper å skrive, men de brune øynene viker ikke fra telefonen. Det er som om hun ser rett gjennom den. Kan hun ha oppdaget at jeg observerer henne? Jeg flytter blikket lynraskt mot vinduet. Stillheten varer bare et kort øyeblikk, så hører jeg klikkelyden igjen.
 
Jeg fortsetter å se ut av vinduet. Den tidlige solen gir glød og varme til høstfargene, og de lette solstrålene føles vidunderlig mot ansiktet. Jeg lukker øynene, men må lukke de opp igjen. Jeg kan ikke gå glipp av det vakre livet som spilles av utenfor vinduet.
 
Klikkelyden stopper, og i øyekroken kan jeg se henne lese. Hun sveiper teksten sakte. Øynene er konsentrerte, og mimikken i ansiktet er monotont og uten følelser. Hva er det hun leser om? Er hun nervøs for noe? Er hun engstelig for at hun feiler noe alvorlig? Jeg ser på henne igjen, men jeg klarer ikke å lese ansiktsuttrykket hennes.
 
Hun ser ikke opp fra mobilen en eneste gang, og jeg vet ikke om hun Googler sykdommer eller kjeder seg. Hun unngår i hvert fall å møte blikket mitt. Er hun menneskesky?
 
Tankene mine spinner hvileløst videre. Mobiltelefoner er et betent tema i våre dager og er stadig oppe i media. Vi hører om ungdommene som ikke hører når du snakker til dem, men som svarer deg umiddelbart på chat. Vi hører om husregler der alle legger bort mobilen under middagen, og om vennegjenger som avtaler at den første som rører mobilen må ta restaurantregningen.
 
Det har faktisk gått så langt at et norsk teleselskap har lansert en app som “hjelper deg å være til stede i øyeblikket”. På deres nettsider kan vi lese: “Når du trykker på appen, måler den tiden du ikke bruker på noen av telefonens funksjoner, men i stedet nyter din sønns danseforestilling, en god samtale eller en vakker solnedgang. Med en gang du plukker opp mobilen for å svare på et anrop eller sender en sms, slutter appen å telle tiden.”
 
Hva har skjedd med oss, når noen mener vi trenger en app for å være til stede?
 
Mobiltelefonene har rett og slett invadert oss. Teknologien har invadert oss. Den unge jenta på venteværelset har ikke opplevd et liv uten mobil, og nå gjør hun bare som sine jevnaldrende. I stedet for å hilse og kanskje prate med meg, kommuniserer hun heller digitalt med sine venner og holder seg oppdatert på det som skjer. Den menneskelige faktoren lever videre, men i en annen form.
 
Og mer vil det bli. Livet vårt digitaliseres. Snart vil vi se at husholdningsapparater, biler, klær og andre ting vi omgir oss med i hverdagen blir tilkoblet internett og kommuniserer med hverandre. Det kan virke som alt blir mer komplisert, men i bunn og grunn er drivkraften bak teknologiutviklingen å gjøre livet enklere.
 
Et godt valg i hverdagen er å bidra til balanse i vårt digitaliserte liv. Ikke la teknologien ta helt over. Vi trenger fortsatt klemmer, hjelp til å tørke tårer, møte øyne som stråler, føle oss verdsatt og alt det andre som teknologien ikke kan erstatte.
