Do you know someone who is always on their phone?

The last two nights I went out with a friend I swear she always has her phone in her hand and posts everything online whether Facebook or Twitter. She is so involved with Syrian. She was 'dating' a guy from there, yet never met him and then he stopped talking to her. So she is constantly following that, and obsessed with it. I almost feel like I go out by myself half the time.

No, I don't really know anyone like that. It's bad manners to always be on your phone if you are going out with someone.

I completely agree. Now its one thing if you take one call and then apologize but she literally can't set her phone down.

@ricki_911 Yes a call isn't a problem but on you phone all the time, NO, not the thing to do.

@kevin1877uk Exactly, she is constantly on her phone, and posting to Facebook or Twitter. I assume because she never goes out, and when she does she goes by herself.

I look around and observe that just about everyone I see fits that bill.

I agree if you go out somewhere you will see it often.

Maybe the reason why she's online and post everything online or always on the phone is because she wanted to know updates about her Syrian friend. But on the other hand, not being private about some things is not good.

That could be it but she could least set her phone down for 2 hours. Apparently she was 'dating' the one guy but he blocked and deleted her.

@ricki_911 oh... Maybe her constant calling and trying to reach him finally got to him. I also don't like people who would constantly be one my tail. I love privacy and being on my own. Clingy and needy people are the ones I hate to be with

@slayer08 I completely agree. I am the same way, but I am not sure how it worked. They were always texting and talking. I assume he found someone else or some disagreement. I know she had just recently told him her brother was gay, and I said if he just blocked and deleted you he is a loser.

I used to know a gentleman who used to be on the phone all of the time. He worked for a phone company and of course never had to pay for a single phone call. One morning I arrived in to work at about 7:50 in the morning, I had not yet turned on my computer when the phone rang, it was Paul, he was in the way to the office and was asking whether I could do something for him, well I had to get the computer started and could not get it done that second. It took him seven minutes to arrive at the office and he stayed on the phone the whole time, but I had still not answered his first question as we were still waiting for the systems to start. This was some time ago and systems were much slower those days. We used to joke that Paul needed a mobile phone stitched into his ear because of how often he used it.

I couldn't imagine being on the phone that often, it really just tires me out. I know customers at work every time you see them they are always on the phone. I find them rude while they are on the phone and cashing out.

@ricki_911 There are times when you should not multi-task. I was in a queue the other day and the person was on the phone at the same time as paying for their groceries, needless to say their conversation kept getting in the way of using the credit card machine, which kept timing out the transaction. Dumb.

I just can;t understand what is so important about their phone and why they have to constantly be posting.

I can't stand that. If i'm going out with someone or family i do not use my phone at all unless they go use the bathroom or something. I find it rude to be on the phone when your there to interact and enjoy each others company.

I know a lot of people who are absolutely addicted to their phones and have it in their hands at all times - even when they are washing their hands in the bathroom. I don't know why they bother to contact me to hang out with them when they won't even look up at me from their phones. It's bad manners and senseless to call someone out and barely make eye contact or talk with them while texting away on the phone. Just really annoying.

I completely agree with you. I was rather annoyed, I don't mind checking the time, or if your waiting for a text or call as I do that while petsitting or something. But constantly barely setting it down.

I want to know what they are posting so often. Like could you not wait until you got home. I took pictures while we were out but then posted them when I got home.

That is a shame your friend prefers her phone over socializing with you. My husband seems to be on the phone all the time. He is an extrovert and has so many buddies that he talks to. Me, I cannot stand talking on the phone or messing with it either.

This girl I think doesn't go out often, or has to prove something. I will post for example Paint Nite, or the jousting tournament I watched I posted pictures but did it this morning after I got home.
