Here are five tell-tale traits of Smartphoniacs:
Do they take their smart phones with them when they get up from the table to go to the restroom — and do they take an awful lot of trips there?
Do you receive messages from them while you know they are driving (increasingly being banned in state after state), or at midnight on Saturday night?
Do they come up with excuses in the middle of a conversation to pull out their smart phone — something like “let me jot something you said down so I don’t forget it,” and then sneak a look at all their messages?
Are they suffering from sprained or elongated thumbs?
Do they openly use their smart phones in inappropriate places, such as first dates, at Rosh Hashanah or Christmas dinner, in hospital delivery rooms, or on job interviews?
If your “friend” fits four out of five of these, then he or she is a Smartphoniac. If he fits only two or three of them, he is just another typical user who stays connected on the street, in meetings and at the movies. (read the rest of this article here)
