I have been seeing many people who pay more attention to mobile than people around them its officially called phubbing. It is really sad when your dear ones shows more interest in mobile than your conversation. I think people should give proper time and attention to everyone around them. After experiencing it recently i felt ignored.Then i decided to never keep myself busy with phone while listening or talking to others. Have you ever faced it ?

My daughter and grand daughter do this constantly and it is extremely annoying whilst one is trying to speak to them about something important. Of course, I am not totally innocent myself, since I sometimes do much the same with the computer, though I do break off when what is being discussed is something which needs my attention!

True ,many youngsters do it. But as you said we too do phubbing sometimes unknowingly.

I am on phone most of the times, but not when I am talking to someone. The latter event occurs rarely.... No one has yet snubbed me using their phones but I have had annoyed many by not letting them focus on their oh-so-important activities on phones!
