Rude friends who feel it''s okay to constantly text with friends while you''re hanging out

Am I the only one who has a MAJOR problem with this? I have on friend in particular who will come over to my condo, we'll sit and start having a conversation and the next thing you know he's on his fucking phone texting back and forth with someone, like having a full-on convo. Then he'll snap out of it for a second and say "Sorry!" and we'll resume, only for him to go back at it...leaving me sitting there twitting my thumbs and almost feeling like I'm intruding in their little tryst. To me this is so incredibly rude and low class. If I take time out of my life to spend 1-on-1 time with someone, is it really too much to ask that they do the same for me? I'm probably not describing this very well, as I'm not good with putting feelings or intangibles into words. All I know is that if I'm hanging out with someone, my focus is on them for that time. If my phone rings I'll either ignore it or quickly answer and let that person know I'm busy at the moment but will call them back when I'm free. But apparently the new "acceptable" is to be physically hanging out with one person while being a chatty Cathy on your stupid cellphone? I mean do people think it makes them look cool or "in demand" by constantly shooting back and forth with others? To me it's completely obnoxious and there are times when I'll just stop talking altogether and it takes all the strength in my body not to just ask him to leave. It truly gets on my nerves. Is this really the world we live in now? Two people can't just sit in time and space together and have 1-on-1 time? How sad. Thoughts?
