If you feel like life grinds to a halt when your phone isn't in your hand, and you genuinely can't go about your day-to-day life without feeling the steady, reassuring weight of of your device in your pocket, then you're in good company.
Here are seven things you'll only understand if your attachment to your phone is practically surgical and perhaps a little unhealthy.
1. The horror when someone asks to borrow it.
Use your own phone, or face the difficult consequences of having organised yourself poorly.
2. The terror of ever losing it/having it taken from you.
Which is probably the way a mother feels when she clings onto her child's hand in a busy street.
3. The twitchy fingers you get when you hear a notification come through but you can't check it.
LIFE IS CALLING YOU, and you just have to ignore it and work through your fractions test like it's nbd.
4. The struggle between putting it on charge or watching the battery slowly drain.
You *could* put it on charge or you could watch an extra ten minutes of that Netflix show. Decisions, decisions.
5. The crushing wave of guilt you feel in your soul when it runs out of battery and shuts down.
That phone was depending on you for life and sustenance, and you let it down terribly.
6. The inability to truly enjoy any experience without documenting it first.
Your phone, apart from being a compass, a library, and a communication device, is also a great memory storer - and you're a memory maker.
7. The relief when someone forgets your passcode and can't snoop on you.
Now hand me back my phone and let's both go our separate ways. Perhaps forever.
8. The anxiety you feel when you forget it at home and have to survive the whole day solo.
Is this how people had to live during the 80's? How did they ever figure out celebrities ages/what tube line they should head for? BAFFLING.
