‘Phubbing’ – when someone you’re talking to suddenly ignores you to use their phone. Snubbed by phone. This phenomenon is not new but I guess the name is. This actually made an article on the morning news today. Unbelievable. As if there isn’t enough real news to report on.
Maryport, Cumbria, July 2013
Didn’t realise there was a word for this behaviour.
it was (not very interesting) news to me too
