Cell Phone Users Admit Faking Calls to Avoid Awkward Interactions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
A national survey conducted by the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project found that 13 percent of cell phone users reported deflecting awkward conversations by faking phone calls.

Anyone do this? I'll bet hot chicks do it to avoid being hit on.

a pseudo-celeb once rode with a friend of mine and in the car she pretended to be talking on the phone instead of having to interact with my friend. how did he know she was faking it? phone rang while she was "conversing"

Didn't one of the phone companies offer a service that allows the user to arrange a phone call to his or her cellphone at a preset time? I think the examples I read was to have the phone ring during a date and fake an emergency as an escape.

This sounds like something a person from California would do.

Population of California is 35,484,453 so there's a statistical possibility of this.
