ALL WET: Do you really need to use phone in the shower?
Posted: 03/05/14 by Tim Bean
Everyone knows about the dangers of sending a text or talking while you're driving.
But, what is your stance on using your cell phone in the shower?
As silly as that question sounds, the reality is that you love your phone and wish you could use it 24 hours a day, seven days per week.
Aside from using your phone while you're driving or operating any other heavy machinery you come into contact with on a daily basis, there aren't many places you can't use your phone. Whether you're at the movies (yes, you with the bright cell phone screen that is distracting moviegoers from the actual film), at dinner or struggling to stay awake in a sales meeting, your cell phone is your ultimate salvation that toils on opposite ends of the time spectrum.
Your cell phone is equal parts wasting time and making life a little easier.
And for some, “easier” equates to being able to use your phone while you're in the shower. The latest company to forage into the cell phone in the shower market is HoYo, a company that designed what looks like a simple, see through bag that hangs in your shower, either from the hot and cold handles to the curtain itself.
This bag looks like something you'd get at a grocery store, but despite the rudimentary look to it, consumers who can't separate from their smart phones are clamoring for this product. The item from HoYo isn't so much being called into question as much as the customer who has convinced themselves that they actually can't put the phone aside for a five or 10 minute shower.
Who doesn't love everything their cell phone brings to them? Weather reports within seconds, stock quotes at the touch of a button and the ability to send emails directly from a device that not long ago was only good for making calls.
We get it; your phone is amazing, remarkable. It's your sidekick, and something you can't leave home without. But leaving your phone at home, and setting it on the side of the sink or on top of the toilet lid while you're taking a bath or shower is a totally different discussions.
If you want to listen to music, turn the volume up on the phone and set it somewhere nearby your shower. Or, by a small speaker to attach to your phone for maximum volume control. If you want to text your friend, try doing it before you get in the shower. The same sentiment exists for emails, too.
Nothing short of being The President on the United States would warrant the notion that you need your phone by your side at a moment's notice. For most of us, that's wishful thinking and a seriously ludicrous self-important evaluation that ultimately is all wet.
