In general, smartphones have made our lives simpler. They can help us find the way to a restaurant and they keep us linked to our social media accounts and mail. If they are so helpful, how come so many people get agitated with smartphone users? Probably because there are some bothersome habits they develop. If you are guilty of any of the habits listed below, you may be unintentionally annoying those around you.
Texting and driving
Although texting and driving is against the law in most states, people still do it. This behavior is not only aggravating, as it makes you less of an attentive driver, it can result in car accidents. These accidents can just be fender benders or they can end in fatalities. Send a text to your friend telling them you will be five minutes late is not worth the possibility of hurting yourself or someone else. If you can’t resist the urge to text, try turning your phone off when you are in a vehicle.
Paying more attention to your phone than your friends
Have you ever witnessed people eating dinner together but they are both on their smartphones? This practice is very annoying for people. When you make plans with your friends and family, the intent is to spend quality 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 if you have been in the midst of a discussion and a friend has answered a text? Perhaps you felt less important. If you don't want your companions to feel this way, avoid your phone when out with them.
When you navigate through your phone or type does it make little clicking sounds or beeps? You may not notice this, but it is probably annoying the people around you. When you are standing in line at the grocery store and texting your friend, the people around you don’t want to hear the clicks of your fingers moving across the keys. It is simple to turn this off for the comfort of those around you.>
