10 ways your phone has embarrassed you in public

Sometimes your smartphone is a life-saver – like when it helps you avoid super awkward situations. But other times it’s not so awesome—like when it rings in the middle of your grandfather’s funeral service, or when your obsession with it causes you to fall into a fountain while texting:

Here are 10 times your phone is not on your side. And in public, no less!

You can turn off your alarm in the morning without ever waking up, but when your phone goes off in a darkened theater you suddenly forget how to operate it.

Because your little cousin changed it when you went over to your aunt’s house. Thanks a lot, Susie.

And the people on stage call you out. This is so much worse than being in a movie theater, where it’s just other audience members calling you out.

The one time you actually use your phone as a phone, two people call you at once. How do touch screes work again!

…And sees 28 half-naked mirror selfies you took when you were feeling particularly sexy drunk.

And the person you give it to tries to call you to confirm. You…must have heard me wrong

This could be your big break! You can’t not pick this up! Let’s hope that mute button really does something…

Seriously, why do you even have your grandma on Snapchat in the first place Snapchat is not for family members!

“Oh, you must be mistaken. I wasn’t pretending to talk on my phone, I was picking it up in anticipation of this call…”

…And in your state of shock, you accidentally swipe right. (Bonus embarrassment points if it’s a family member!)
