Ah cellphones, they have changed our lives for the better in so many ways. But just like any social device it has its… moments. It is of no fault of the phone itself, but the one who is holding said phone. We here at TheBlueDot may sell cellphones, but we have witnessed some of the worst, or annoying, cellphone habits just like you have. Here are some of our top most annoying habits, in no particular order. We already did a similar article on phone habits, but this one is specifically asked around by staffers.
The Rude Movies
Everyone has been in a movie theater some time in their lives, and there is a good chance you have been in at least one with someone who answered their phone while the movie is playing. Not only is this rude because of the sound, but the sudden flash of light from their screen can be blinding in a room that can be so dark. They don’t always get a phone call either, sometimes there are the texters who hold their phone up to head height so everyone behind them gets a nice bright light in their face. The solution? Well, if it’s you, just put your phone on silent and answer the calls outside if you’re expecting something very important. Or, if it’s a text, hold it low to your lap and cover it almost entirely with your hand so only your face gets the light. If it’s important you can leave and text/call the person outside, or simply ignore it. If it’s someone else, either ask them nicely to stop, or get an usher.
