Now that I know it upsets someone I'm sure to do it more often.

I read the article but I was watching ESPN at the same time so I might have missed the point the author was making.

Could it, please? China could use a culling. And India. Maybe we could get the two to nuke each other.

So that is 6/10 of China right?

I hate this so much. This commonly occurs in my household when my wife wants to watch a movie or TV show. So I stop doing whatever I'm doing, fire up the HTPC or netflix and pick something to watch that's agreeable to both of us (in other words something she enjoys and I merely tolerate), then she spends the first 20 minutes of the show or movie frigging with her phone. 
Basically when my wife asks me to watch TV or a movie with her she is asking me to watch TV or a movie while she plays with her phone.

The exception to this is Downton Abby, I have no idea why but I enjoy it and she absolutely loves it and as such won't play with her phone.

I expected that site to be a advertisement for T-Mobile.
It is a pretty site even though it does weird things to my browser.

Phubbing?

Please don't let this catch on, the last farking thing we need is another made up buzz word going around.

Just because you want attention doesn't make you more important than my phone.

Odd. I find that using the word "phubbing" makes me want to punch someone in the face so much more than the thought of actually being phubbed.

I read that article on my phone while giving the occaisonal "Uh-huh" to my wife who was blathering on about something, so I'm getting a kick

/...in the nuts, repeatedly, for ignoring her.

Not even generous cleavage can stop it, either.

Read this on my phone while eating lunch at a restaurant so I'm getting a kick etc.

"Phubbing" is a dumb name, but the scourge must be stopped.

I like to listen to Phubstep. It's like Dubstep, only it's played as a cell phone ringtone so there's no bass to it.

Don't be boring and I will pay more attention.

More likely there is a lull in conversation and instead of staring at you or the wall and I sneak a peak at the interwebs.

Phubb off.

I would just like to say that I thought I have was up on every meme, buzzword, abbreviation and fad. But I have never heard this term before in my life.

A co-worker of mine used to do this. Continually pulling out his phone and checking it while we are talking.  He quit doing it when I told him to put the phone away and be polite.  I think he didn't even realize he was being rude.
