In general, smartphones have made our lives simpler. They can help us find the way to a restaurant and they keep us connected to our social media accounts and mail. If they are so helpful, how come so many people get irritated with smartphone users? Probably because there are some irritating habits they develop. If you are guilty of any of the habits listed below, you may be accidentally annoying those around you.
Texting and driving
The most bothersome smartphone habit isn’t just annoying: It can be deadly. Far too many people text and drive at the same time, even though doing so is against the law in most states. If you’re guilty of this sin, look at this fact: Texting and driving often leads to fatal accidents. You may not only hurt yourself; you might kill someone else. So, if you can’t resist your cell phone while driving, do the smart thing and shut it off. Then you won’t be inclined to make a possibly deadly mistake.
Paying more attention to your phone than your friends
Have you ever observed people eating dinner together but both of them are on their smartphones? This practice is very annoying for individuals. When you make plans with your friends and family, the intent is to spend time with them, right? How can you do that if you are checking your email the whole time or texting? Remember how you have felt when you have been in the middle of a discussion and a friend has answered a text? Maybe you felt less important. Unless you want your companions to feel this way, avoid your phone when out with them.
Does your phone click and beep when your type? Consider turning off these sounds. When you are waiting in line at the bank, nobody wants to hear the little clicks of your phone. It invades their audial space. You may not realize it, but we guaranty those surrounding you do.
