Snoozing doesn’t make you more rested. It may even make you feel worse. BUT THE LURE OF THE BUTTON CANNOT BE RESISTED.

YOU: How’s it going?
THEM: Heyy! How’s it going?
YOU: So, how’s it going?
THEM: Good! How are you?
… etc, forever.
4. Check your phone for no reason
Your phone hasn’t gone off, and it isn’t on silent. But what if there’s been some kind of malfunction? What if there’s an important message? What if we’re needed at the UN?

5. HONK HOOOOOONK
It’s 8.30am and you’ve moved four inches along the Naas Road in the last 20 minutes. But perhaps the magical horn will make the traffic in front evaporate? It’s worth a go.
6. Make conversation-appropriate faces while on the phone
Because they might be able to see you.
7. Turning the house upside down looking for the remote control

8. Open this
Then stare into it.
Then close it again.
9. The ‘scribble’ action
When asking for the bill.
