1. “Can you please take a picture with my phone TOO?”
The person taking your picture CANNOT understand why you just can’t take the picture from your friend – especially in the age of magically sharing pictures.
2. “Are you there? Hi, why no reply?”
If someone hasn’t responded to the very first text, it is quite likely they haven’t seen it. Sending a slew of text messages is simply pointless!
3. “Let me check that right now!”
Cellphones have made people weirdly competitive about facts and they tend to whip out their phones in the most inappropriate places – a movie theatre, a concert. Just enjoy your time out will you?
4. Overuse of unrelated Emojis while texting
Okay this isn’t a phrase, but we’re trying to decode your sentence of emojis. House, sun, smiley, laughing smiley, heart, drinks, plane. What are you trying to say??
5. “I can’t hear you!!!”
9 out of 10 times it is pretty much your fault.Don’t blame the network if you are talking on an elevator, while travelling in a car with all that wind or while you’re at a loud party. Screaming ‘I can’t hear you’ isn’t going to make things better.
