1. When you’re waiting for a friend and need to look busy / not completely pathetic and alone.

The clicking of a BlackBerry keyboard just screams 'I have lots of friends'.


2. When you’re on the bus and don’t want the person next to you to talk to you.

Maybe if you put your phone reeeeaaally close to your face they'll get the message.


3. When you’re in a cab and don’t want the driver to talk to you.

They don't need to know that no one is actually on the other end of the phone.


4. When you’re at a boring family event.

Honesty is the best policy.


5. When your friends force you to watch a film you hate.

You barely even saw the first ten minutes of The Avengers.
