LOL! This is how a text message convo would look if someone actually replied back to your fake text message while feeling awkward! I'm not going to pretend I've never done this... at least pretended to be busy on my phone. Have you?

    I'm pretty damn honest. If something is making me feel awkward, I'm not going to just bury my head in the sand (my phone.)

    Couple times I've pretended to get a text as an excuse to politely get away from a situation I didn't want to be in.

    Typically when there is someone, like at a mall kiosk, that I know is going to try and sell me something, talk me into something, etc.

    Just easier than telling them no and having them continue anyway until I tell them to buzz off.

    Lol. I avoid social gather but when I do I do this. Theres an app that makes it look like your getting text from somebody when really your just texting yourself. I got this app, I put to receive the text every thirty seconds.

    If you feel awkward, just order a cocktail or two. It will be fine.

    YES I have seen people that try real hard to call attention to themselves(ie talking LOUDLY into cell, laughing LOUDLY at a text, having an anoying text or ring tone).
    Since some people always buy the most recent phones with some dazzeling accesories....so people notice how much they spent....
    It's like they are stuck in HS...LOL.
    Have you ever watched the Taylor Swift video "Mean"?


    That comes to mind ...not sure why...

    I love that song...
    Pompus, arrogant, people who suffer from superiority complex, who think they are the center of the universe, while trying desperately to convince those around them of their imaginary, legendary status -MAKE ME LAUGH -HARD!!! They are mean and ugly.. Not too mention super pretentious, so I can see why you think of this song.. LOL!
    Mean people suck!
    Have a great one!

    No, I don't live attached to my cell. If I need to get away, I'll find a way without using a phone as an excuse.

    I used to do that but found that it's just easier to confront the annoying people on just how annoying they can be, That way you can get rid of them and maybe even save someone else from n awkward moment in future. :D

    A guy was following me on my way home from the store. I made several detours to check if he was really following me or if it was just me being paranoid. I even walked in circles. I certainly wasn't going to go home and show him where I lived. It was 11pm and dark outside, so I pretended to be talking with someone on my dead phone. No houses nearby. He never did anything though. Still, the experience was somewhat uncomfortable :)
