Coincidentally, I was just chatting with a Spanish friend who raised this same point - about how rude the Spanish are becoming in using smartphones ("WhatsApp") at the dinner table and in company. I had to agree that was my bugbear with people walking around looking into their smartphones the whole time or mums picking up their kids by sitting in the car and texting them the whole time where they can be found and then carrying on texting even as the kid is entering the car!

I'm not surprised Cypriots have become glued too as in some poll a few years ago, Cypriots were found to be the most techno-savvy people in Europe.

OK - rude behaviour by Cypriots?

Not taking "NO" for an answer! :D

Have some cake!

No thanks, I'm on a diet!

OK - just have a small piece then.

No, thank you, really, it will set me off.

Oh, you're talking nonsense. A piece of cake won't kill you!

I find the only way I can talk to my niece when we are in the same room is to call her on her mobile phone, she's glued to the bloody thing, texting left right and centre and then she complains I'M being rude by interrupting her inane meaningless chat.
Well girly - no more bloody Christmas presents in that case. :D

I hate Phones, all phones, mobiles or not ! Its a burning ambition of mine that when I eventually retire I shall forego my mobile phones, you see I have 3 in total. A business UK one, a family UK another and of course my Cyprus one.

As I'm still in full employment at the young age of almost 70 the phones are a necessity nuisance, take this morning for instance, at about 5.30am a customer calls , one of my best, to tell me her bloody interlock broke down last evening!!

The lady is a prime customer so I had to be polite at 5.30am, she knows I'm an early riser and always ..come !

I mentioned it to my daughter in Cyprus and her reply, dad, without a mobile how can we contact you ? The same way I used to contact my dad I replied !! We did come to an arrangement however that my mobile will be turned on weekdays only between 9am to 9.30am and 3pm to 3.30 pm NEVER ON SUNDAY !

So there's a term for it.
I wasn't aware this kind of behavior was coined 'Cypriot behavior'.

Apparently it's indigenous to CY and found nowhere else in the world. :D

Ummm....Cypriots are the least tech savvy in the EU according to this index. Just select Technological Readiness. I had to look because I knew that was wrong. High uptake of Facebook though (a huge American company which is interesting).

Anyway, I have a few bug bears about Cypriots.

Cypriots can be quite rude, and intrusive. They gossip way too much and can be quite the sticky peaks.

Also their driving manners are a bit...well you know...there is no need to spell it out.

Oh and many Cypriots adhere to the lunacy of some massive Western (American) conspiracy theory and yet they like one of the biggest criminals of our time. Scratching my head on that one! :lol:

Other than that, Cypriots are not too bad I guess! So don't get me wrong because there are plenty of Cypriot lads and Manges which I could get along with but they are a special bread and rare! 8)

Look, I reckon that's a great idea. Get rid of those mobiles and all your computers please!
