When was the last time you sat at dinner, in a movie, at an event, and the person joining you spent more time looking at their phone than looking at you while speaking? Sure they may have held up their end of the conversation to some extent, but how much of their energy did you really pick up? Did you get a lot of yeahs and uh-huhs? Or maybe you just got finished making a really interesting or important point, and they blurted out something completely irrelevant that they just read hot off the Twitter or Facebook-press?
If your answer is that this happens all of the time, or maybe you’re one of the offending communicators, think about these points before you pull out the phone while you’re on your next personal or professional outing.

So as I’m sitting and catching up on Facebook posts from friends, I saw a comment about how horrified an HR director was when a candidate showed up for an interview and thought that lotioning her feet while waiting to be called back was a good idea. Say it with me…taking care of personal hygiene while waiting for an interview is a really bad idea!
