In the November 13 issue of the New York Times Magazine, Lizzie Shurnick suggests several new words, all geared for cell phone/smartphone users.
“Clogin” is defined as “one who blocks an entrance or exit while checking a smartphone.”
“Mailingerers” are “those who pretend to have messages.”
And “e-ander” is “walking slowly while checking messages.”
I ran into several clogins and mailingerers, not to mention a few e-anderers, just the other day.
It’s amazing how they appear if you’re running late.
