11 Times You Totally Shouldn't Be on Your Phone in Lifestyle

Can't put your phone down? Whether you're an Insta-addict or Pokémon Go obsessed, there are times it's just not cool to be on your phone.

1. When you're supposed to be revising

undefined

Must. Keep. Learning. Stuff.

2. When you're in a really important work meeting

undefined

"Sorry? I didn't quite catch that."

3. When you're queueing in the supermarket

undefined

There's probably someone tutting behind you because you haven't realised that it's your turn at the checkout.

4. When you're crossing the road

undefined

Safety first! Your eyes should be looking left and right. Your fingers can be swiping left or right once you've reached the other side.

5. When you're driving

undefined

As above, this one really goes without saying. It's for you and others' safety and it's against the law.

6. When you're attending a funeral

undefined

This is really just in poor taste.

7. When you're in the cinema

undefined

Come on, you and everyone else paid good money to see this film!

8. When you're in a polling station

undefined

Save the selfies for outside, this could also land you in a lot of trouble!

9. When you're already running really, really late

undefined

As tempting as watching one more YouTube vid might be, you said you were 5 minutes away about half an hour ago didn't you?

10. When your alarm is set to go off in like... four hours

undefined

It's getting light outside and the birds are chirping - you're probably due some shut-eye.

11. When someone is actually trying to have a conversation with you

undefined

Make the most of getting to see someone face-to-face and enjoy their company! No one likes the person who can't put their phone down!
