Being Social on the Toilet

“I like using the iPhone on the can in work, it’s the only break I get!” as a friend recently said to me. Why, I wondered? Because it was the only time he got to himself in work, that’s why. It’s not a new concept, it’s the new paper, it just looks a bit dodgy bringing a paper into the toilet in work.

How many times have you been sitting in the canteen and someone comes in and starts talking about work? Before ya know it your lunch has gone cold, your tea has gotten that horrible skin on the top of it and your 5 minutes late. That’s what has led to this; being social on the toilet. This can occasionally lead to:

We’re all go nowadays. We don’t switch off. We are accessible everywhere and at anytime. It’s not nice. It’s not handy. It is certainly not healthy. It used to be that you worked to live, or lived to work, whichever. But now? Now it’s everything, all the time. It’s why I go to places with no phone signal sometimes, just so I’m forced to switch off. Turns out that not been able to check Facebook can actually horrify you for a few seconds. After all, how will I inform the world that I’m out of reach at the moment?!
