    What is something you see others do on their phones that drives you nuts?

    My sister is notorious for sending 4 or 5 texts one after another to say one simple thought.... I know that when she texts me I just wait a minute because I know there will be more in just a second....

    1. Texting and / or typing on any site & driving. Just plain unsafe! Makes me want to run them into a ditch.

    2. Holding the phone up to their ear while talking and driving. It's 2015... most vehicles have Bluetooth. If not, a decent BT headset is only around $25. Go hands free!

    People(women) who hold their phones in their bra...yeah I guess to some it may be awesome..but then they start holding money there..and yuck..

    People who let their kids chew on their phones..their loss..but you know they call customer support and say..no..it hasn't gotten wet..or been dropped or thrown..

    People who text at the gym!!!! Grrrrr..if you're able to make a coherent text..you aren't working hard enough..stop wasting my time..and get your butt off the machine I'm waiting for..especially if you're taking 5 minutes between sets..I can do 3 sets in 5 minutes if I push it...

    Texting isn't allowed in my gym. You do it, they take your phone. No stupid selfies the mirrors either.

    Texting, or talking non-hands-free while driving! But my other pet peeve is when people are grocery shopping or in any business establishment and talk on the phone non-stop especially when they are checking out. If you need to have a lengthy conversation that bad, step outside.

    I'm amazed at how people are always on the phone. I never understood what was so important you had to be on the phone.

    I work retail and it drives me even more nuts when they're doing it on speakerphone.
    Shapely women carrying their phone in the back pocket of their tight pants. It distracts my attempt to see what kind of phone it is.
    And do people realize when they have their phone going through their speakers that EVERYONE within 100 feet hears the person they're taking to , further out if their windows are down ? Turn down the dag gone volume for Pete's sake.
    When I see someone texting and driving I lay on my horn. Scares the crap out of them every time.

    Aside from the things you folks have already mentioned, it drives me nuts when people share a screenshot of a picture on Facebook when the picture clearly could've been long pressed and saved to their device.
