Are Your Smartphone Tendencies Annoying Or Acceptable?

If you check email on your phone during conversations, you might be in the clear. What else are you doing to annoy people though?

Posted on
  1. Do you check email during one or more of the following: while in bed, while watching TV, while on vacation?

    Just while watching TV; I check it during ads.
    Never, I check email at work and leave it there.
    All of them (plus maybe a few places not mentioned here).
  2. Do you check your email while hanging out with people?

    Always, what’s the harm, I can multitask.
    Sometimes, only when it’s urgent or we’re not mid-convo.
    Never, who would do that?
  3. Do you play Pokémon Go while hanging out with people?

    Well yeah, gotta catch ‘em all.
    Only when it’s a chance I can’t pass up.
    Absolutely not. And also, I don’t play Pokémon Go—that’s so two months ago
  4. Do you use emojis in your email?

    Who doesn't?!
    Only when I’m really excited or upset.
    Never, how unprofessional.
  5. Have you tried an email detox?

    No, why would I try that?
    Yes and it was kind of a tragedy.
    Yes and it was magical.
  6. Do you get up in the middle of the night to check email?

    Every night.
    Only a couple of times, when I’m waiting for an important email.
    Never, I value my ZZZs.

You got: Your email tendencies are slightly annoying.

You might check email in the middle of a conversation but you're not getting to people the way playing Pokemon Go does.
