Omg! Where's my iPhone? I gonna die! - Cell phone separation anxiety alert!

"Oh my G! Oh my gosh! I left my iPhone somewhere. Is it at home? In my room? Urgh! It's not in my bag. It's not in my pocket. I'm totally freaking out right now. I gonna die! I gonna die!"

I swear that teenager was going to pass out. She literally didn't even pause to breathe.

We might find this situation funny or a little bit irritating, but what that teenager experienced is totally serious and real for so many iPhone/cell phone users.

The research conducted by the University of Missouri suggests that iPhone separation can negatively affect mental task performance. Russel Clayton, the lead author of the research added that " the results from our study suggest that iPhones are capable of becoming an extension of our selves such that when separated, we experience a lessening of 'self' and a negative physiological state."

These remind me that everything that is too much is bad, and ... I haven't seen my Windows phone since Sunday. 

OMG! I can't find my cell phone! Am I going to faint? 

Naaaah! Maybe later when my husband finds out. LOL
