Phone notifications are a blessing when we want a quick preview of what messages are coming our way, but they can provide their own form of panic when a graphic message pops up while someone else is scanning your phone.
There's nothing quite like the feeling of your gut hitting the floor after your mom accidentally reads a graphic sext from your partner, or the guy at the Apple store catches wind of an embarrassing inside joke, but many of us have been there.
I was showing my mum some cake ideas for my wife's 30th that I was considering. My wife texted me and my mum (for unknown reasons) got a full view of my wife's poon with the caption "guess what you're eating for dessert tonight?"
I tried to grab my phone back, and my mum went back to browsing cakes without skipping a beat. As I was leaving my mum thought it would be funny to ask "Would you like 2nd dessert tonight, because I have a trifle in the fridge?"
