Does this annoy you as much as it annoys me? I'll just walk away.

A quick one is all right with me, but I'll be pissed if they do it continuously.

My friends and I do this to each other all the time. As much of a stickler as I am for eye contact while talking, it's really not necessary. As long as they comprehend what I'm saying and aren't completely ignoring me, I don't care, we can converse just fine regardless.

Yeah, I think it's rude. Kinda like talking on their cell phone around you (when it's not business related). Way to say "I'd rather be with this other person than present company!"

Yep. Don't do it.

If it's constant, yes it's annoying. If it's just here and there, no not really.

If I'm trying to have a serious conversation with you and you keep texting? Yes, it drives me crazy. But if we're like, out shopping or just bumming around I don't really mind as much. I text with my husband a lot, even with people over, although if I tell him I want to focus on the guests he'll leave me be.

Wow, I'm glad I don't know anyone who does this. I would find it super annoying.

It bothers me when this happens, but it doesn't that often. I mean, it's normal to watch them check their phones every so often, even when I may talking. But they don't get completely absorbed into it, so it doesn't bother me.

Usually if we're walking about just talking about random stuff, I don't care, but if it's like an important story than definitely.

I have a friend that texts when i am on the phone with her and I hear a whole bunch of clicking in my ear and I just hang up on her. She doesn't text while she is on the phone with me anymore.

It really pisses me off, so rude!! If someone needs that much contact with people they must not be that interested in our conversation.

I usually don't care if we are just hanging out. My best friend, her fiancee is in the navy so when he texts her I expect her to answer him because he doesn't do it all that often. Now if it was to the point that it was getting in the way of whatever we were doing I might make comment but honestly it doesn't phase me much.

I'mlike you Spineyogurt I will walk away unless it's an emergency...the only time I didn't get really angry was when my friend's daughter texted her to let her know that her -ex was lurking around outside their home. I was on the phone to the police while she kept her daughter calm. There's a time and place...ya know? When we are having a conversation isn't the time to be having a conversation with someone else! Ask me politely to wait and I'm ok with it...just assume I'm cool with you ignoring me and watch the sparks fly! LOL

Just walking away is a great idea. I will do that next time someone texts quite a bit while I'm talking with them. It's so rude! I hate when I'm in the middle of a sentence and they pick up the phone and click away and nod and say "mmhmm. mmm hmmm" Like I'm dumb enough to not see the damn phone and know that they aren't paying attention. My twin sis does this to me. She'll even look up for a second and roll her eyes while I continue talking! Like I'm the rude one for not shutting up when she decides to text mid-conversation. I'm so going to walk away next time Hee Hee

It's just rude, especially if you are getting together after not seeing each other for a while.
