When you check it nonstop
We all check our smartphones a little obsessively. But if you can’t go five minutes without aimlessly scrolling through your apps, you look like a crazy person.
When you don’t put it in a case
You may not have paid full price for it, but your smartphone is a $600+ device. I know it looks better “naked,” but it’s a $600 device. Are you insane?
When you hold it perilously over a cliff
I really hope “phone pinching” isn’t a real thing, but in case it is, let me reiterate. This is a $600 device, you moron.
When you run into walls
If you can use your phone while walking, good for you. If you can’t, yes, you are being judged. Every single time you walk into a wall, fall into a fountain, or almost get killed by a speeding car.
When you don’t delete nude photos of yourself
Everybody (or almost everybody) takes a nude selfie once in a while—no judgment! It’s when you leave it on your phone for someone to accidentally see when they’re swiping through your vacation pics that judgment comes into play.
When you post dumb photos to social media
If you post photos of yourself committing crimes on Facebook, you are not cool. You’re an idiot. And I have no sympathy for whatever repercussions may befall you.
