am really bemused about people’s use of phones and tablets while they are out
with other people.
really think that if you have made the time to catch up with someone then you could
at least do them the courtesy of spending time with them rather than checking
your phone the entire time.
months ago I was having dinner with a friend and the couple at the table next
to us both had their MASSIVE (and they were massive) phones out and up in front
of their faces. I can only imagine that they were taking photos of one other
and sending them to the other person via Snap Chat. *eye roll* Oh wait…maybe
they were using Tinder to find someone better?
why even go out if you are not even going to communicate face-to-face (without
a device in the way) to the person you are with?
and I have a rule when we go out that my phone goes in my bag and this rule has
been in place after I joined Twitter. He politely (not politely) told me the
other night while I was ranting to him about people using their phones while
out with friends that I used to do it. Oops! I also always try and make sure
that I put my phone away when I am out with friends and I normally do not check
it until I get home or on the way to the car.
that sometimes you do need to check your phone (if you have kids at home or are
waiting for an important text) and that is totally fine. It is just the
constant use of them when you should put it away and actually catch up with
your friend or partner.
make my day, yesterday a girl was so busy texting that she smacked straight
into the glass door where I was having my morning coffee. Suffice to say, I
bloody laughed because if you cannot even look up from your phone to check if
the door is open or closed then you deserve everything you get.
**Disclaimer** This probably annoys me a lot because I did used to do it!
