Maybe your at a meeting, or at some social event and you dont want to appear to be staring off in space. Do you just look down at your phone and pretend to be doing something?

I can intently look a person in the eye and be off on some particular island in my mind no problem. As far as they know I'm hanging on their every word. Playing with a phone is just straight up rude.

I have the internet in my hand.

No pretending required.

I can be pretty anti-social, so usually when I don't want to talk to people and some chatty Kathy is looking to run her mouth.

I pretend to read posts in GD sometimes.

All the time. Every time I see some mother fucker I know is going to drone on and on, I act like I'm talking on the phone.

Sometimes it's the only way to get rid of a barfly.

No, usually the opposite. Trying to do something on the phone without anyone know I've messing with my phone.

The "I'm looking at my phone" gag is the international sign for "don't talk to me".

I can't claim to do it but I have seen it done to other people a lot, particularly in elevators.
