How do you store yours?

Slightly unusual topic but i thought it would be interesting to see who the smart ones are.

A year or 12 back, McVities revealed that the chocolate on their biscuits was indeed the bottom part - makes sense as that's where you'll taste the flavour.  I had wondered about it myself but assumed people would think me nuts for eating them that way and so i carried on like most, with teh chocolate side up.

So with that in mind a couple of years ago i found myself getting increasingly annoyed at having to turn my phone around every time i pulled it out of my pocket and wanted to use it. As a consequence, i now stick my phone in my pocket upside down and when i grab it out with my hand and bring it up to use / see, it's then the right way up. Likewise i now do this with the bottle of alcohol gel i carry in my pocket too. Yes it goes against the grain of the general population but it's practical - very practical.

So how do you store yours?

Always put it in my pocket upside down- thought everybody did!

If I put my phone in my pocket, it naturally goes in upside down, unless it is in the 'Shock-sock' protective case, then it's right way up - easier to open the case.

In the case of the hand-gel, always right way up in my bag - I know it shouldn't leak, but...... Smiley

As one who never carries a mobile phone around, I am so glad I don't have this earth shattering problem. 😉


Don't limit the friends you haven't met with arguments you'll never have.

In a pouch with a belt loop - upside down. Easier to put in or take out.

 

Biscuits - choc side up.

The older I get, the earlier it gets late.

Whether mobile or house-phone, in the pocket upside down.

Chocolate biscuits chocolate side up from the opened packet stored in the freezer.  If I remember I'll try eating one chocolate side down when I have my coffee around noon today.

@Mayfly The biscuits, the phone, or both?  😉

Which leads me on to another important question:  What do you do with your chocolate teapot?  Most people think it's absolutely useless.

Re: How do you store yours?

Think the mods should move this to the Lockdown thread as these are the really important life issues that we now have time to think about. I keep the biscuits on one side of my desk and the phone on the other. The biscuits get eaten very quickly but I only ever touch the phone if it needs charging or to block an annoying scam call.  I am now wondering whether or not they should swap sides or be inverted. Maybe tomorrow.....😫
