I know it’s happened to you. I know you’ve already succumbed to it.
But I, the voice of reason, am here to tell you to stop. You need to hear it, and nobody else has the balls to tell you, so I guess it has to be me.
Stop checking your fucking iPhone while you’re talking to me.
Would you do it if you were talking to the President? Would you do it while talking to your boss? I’m going to guess the answer is no.
By checking your damn iPhone while talking to me, you’re saying “You’re not as important as this message I’m receiving.”
The impression you’re leaving people with is “You’re not worth my time.”
If you already have a modicum of sense in you, you know this. But you do it anyway. Sounds a lot like gambling, smoking, or compulsive eating, doesn’t it?
Well you’ve learned to put down the fork. Now learn to put down the fucking iPhone.
