People who hold their phone in front of them and point their chin at it whilst speaking

A sign that evolution is going backwards?

Yeah, I’m a bit bored.

Better than pointing their knob at it.

Ricolas - 15 May 2018 18:35:26 (#3 of 98)

Fuck me it makes me angry. Like they're about to eat the fucker. It is a fucking phone you fucking cunts! Hold it to your fucking ear or I'll push you in front of a Deliveroo bike.

....wankers...

I've only ever seen this on tv. Does anyone do it in real life?

TinyMcOtter - 15 May 2018 18:38:21 (#6 of 98)

It really does make them look like fucking airheads.

Ricolas - 15 May 2018 18:40:17 (#7 of 98)

all the fucking time. everywhere.

Increasingly so. Often whilst walking in a soma-like trance, with a stupid grin on their face and holding the cable with the speaker to their mouth. AS IF THE PERSON CAN’T FUCKING HEAR YOU!

Some of the people doing this are young enough to have never picked up a landline phone in their lives and may have never held a phone to their ear in the traditional way.

They do it on The Apprentice.

They shiny suited twats.

Tenesmus - 15 May 2018 18:46:42 (#11 of 98)

Well if they didn't it would make shit telly.

I don't like them either, they always congregated on the train on the way back from the match.

I assume that you mean the van drivers, who speed through residential areas, overtaking on zebra crossings and the like?

TinyMcOtter - 15 May 2018 22:54:38 (#14 of 98)

Them too.

But also people walking around and sitting on trains. All of them.

BlueBoy - 15 May 2018 23:44:49 (#15 of 98)

I began to doubt my own belief and thought there was some benefit to holding the phone horizontally that I didn't know about. I'm glad that I felt strongly enough about the ridiculous look of it not to test it out.

TinyMcOtter - 15 May 2018 23:46:55 (#16 of 98)

It’s devolution in action.

RosyLovelady - 16 May 2018 06:51:11 (#17 of 98)

It's Kardashian.

spartak - 16 May 2018 06:59:13 (#18 of 98)

They do it all the time here too. With a glazed look in their eyes. I hate them.

SinnerBoy - 16 May 2018 07:46:09 (#19 of 98)

I only ever see drivers doing it. I'm rarely on public transport, however.

Agaliarept - 16 May 2018 07:57:42 (#20 of 98)

I sometimes do this.
