Gotta love Kevin... But yeah, I do not stare, I nudge.
Mm. I stare. It's kinda funny to see their face, they look at their phone, and then look at you.
Not too long ago, I attended my son's wedding. Some of the people were in the same room and instead of talking to each other they were texting other people who were not there. So I pulled out my phone and text each of them. It was funny! After a bit, everyone started talking...like wow we can converse with our mouths instead of our phones...cool.
I've never done that, but since reading this I'm gonna give it a try!!! lol
HAHAHA...I'm guilty of doing this, but I'm glad not alone HAHAHA
I don't do this. Normally I don't text someone when I am in the same room as them. It's called walking over and talking to them with your mouth.
I often text my daughters while we are in the same room! It's fun! My favorite is when I do a group text of my 2 daughters and their husbands at the same time, in the same room. Their look of annoyance as they all reach for their phones is priceless. Being a pest has it's benefits! Great question Julio!
I like to text my husband when we go to a restaurant and he has to use the men's room. I'll wait til I'm pretty sure he's taking care of business and then send him a message. The look on his face when he comes back to the table makes it worth it.
I do stare until they get it. Of course the only reason I text someone in the same room as me is when my wife and I are planning our "adult" evening together once the kids go to bed. We do said planning while the kids are also in the room. So there are reasons and circumstances when texting someone who is in the same room is both useful and responsible.

Why do cats stare at walls?We've had a few cats that do this, for hours sometimes- just sit there staring or following something along the wall(s) with their line of sight we can't see at all. Does anyone have an idea why a cat does this or what, possibly, their eyes detect that a pair of human...

I was watching a documentary on TV on how texting has completely replaced good old fashioned face to face communication. Apparently we have all become zombies. Especially our teens. Can you believe over 85% of teens are completely useless in communicating face to face with one another and depend...
