  1. 2. You're standing behind someone on the bus and can kind of see their phone from where you are. They seem to be sending a pretty long text. Do you have a nosy?

  1. 3. A manager pulls your colleague away “to have a quick chat”, but they only sit two seats away from you. Do you strain your ears to hear or continue working?

  1. 4. Straight after the ~ominous chat~, your colleague sits down and appears to get an email. From where you're sitting, you can see the email is from the manager. Do you read it over their shoulder?

  1. 7. Two of your friends seem to be having a pretty deep chat in a corner at a party. You suspect it could be some gossip that you really wanna know. Do you go over and find out what’s going on?

    I'd leave them to it. They'll probably tell me eventually.

  1. 10. Your partner’s been asleep for a while and they've left their phone on the bed next to you. You're awake and kind of bored, plus you know the password to their phone. Do you take a look?

    It must be serious if my work BFF won't tell me, so I won't pressure them and won't get annoyed.
