That's a good one.

I hate phones at the dinner table / bar. I don't mind checking the phone when expecting or taking calls, or even a bit of messaging to someone who's coming or whatever. But being glued to facehelmet, instahelmet, twitterhelmet or anything else when there's a small crowd? You're just a ****.

That. And people who 'leave' facebook because it's shit and they spent too much time on it and people just boast on it and it's boring....but are then glued to Instawanker instead. Hypocritical choppers.

There isn't much that annoys me. But, the tendency for my phone to always lose all data services right at the time I need it (normally when booking Uber) is somewhat annoying.

Woman or man for this.

I find shouting 'Your welcome' after them is a little comforting.
