Put your phone down, I’m talking to you!

It drives me absolutely batty when I am hanging out with my friends and they are on their phones the ENTIRE time. Now I understand the occasional text message or angry birds session but I do NOT understand when it became OK to totally ignore real live people in favour of your shiny plastic phone. (I know what you’re thinking… I’m way more fun than this little rant leads on… I swear…)

This past weekend I finally met my breaking point. I just couldn’t take it any longer! I threw out an ultimatum. If you are going to hang out with me you have a choice to make: you can either hang out with me OR you can play Words With Friends. That’s it, that’s all, you can NOT have both.

Unfortunately for me, that tactic didn’t work out so well… Who knew Words With Friends was so freaking addictive?! Rather than stage a much needed intervention, I decided to adapt my strategy to a more amusing one (for me anyway). I came up with this rule: if you want to play Words With Friends at my house… you must do so wearing the paper bag face. This way, while you’re ignoring me, I at least get to laugh at how ridiculous you look trying to place your silly Scrabble word down while peering through your nicely fashioned eye-holes.

Why do I get the feeling the only thing people will take away from this post is that they must immediately download Words With Friends… If you can’t beat ’em… join ’em. Here are a few tips: qi, ti, uts, ar, qys, vox, and xi are all words that will get you points. Oh, and here’s a site if you want to cheat.

Enjoy.

  1. I love this. Hahaha. Although, I feel like an intervention is still in order. Draw Something is the new addiction though now…
