    Oh, it's a thing.

    Definition -
    The act of ignoring your partner or companion for your cell phone.

    Yeah.
    Don't believe me?
    Ask Oxford dictionary.

    Cell phones have infected society.
    And they apparently are creating special words for the actions they change our behavior to.

    Interesting....
    Very interesting...

    Have you ever been phubbed?
    Rhetorical.

    Lol.

    It's a funny word to say though.

    Comes from a smash up of
    "phone" & "snubbed"

    Well, I leaning something new today.
    Thought I'd pass it on.

    (and I'm damn proud of it!!)

    This is a real thing!
    We have a solid rule, no phones or electronics at the dinner table because of this.

    Wow, I had no idea about this, but yes in the beginning when Jak and I were first dating... the phone was out so much I said no more phones on dates/restaurants.... it's worked 70% of the time I guess.

    But phones really do get in the way of relationships these days....

    Phone games are the worst in my opinion, non stop hours and procrastination.
    I don’t play them but I will spend to much time on social media. I kinda miss the years before smart phones & tablets became a thing.
