House of Awkwardness: “No Place Too Strange” Unbothered by locations that would make others flee, this house takes to the darkest parts of the office for the most ordinary conversations. 75% of adults admit to using their phone while going to the bathroom
House of Courtesy: “The Protector of Boundaries” When at court with co=workers, this the most noble of houses places their phones’ ringers on silent mode and, when troubled by a personal call, always makes haste to the nearest private space. 24% of workers spend at least an hour on their phone at work for personal reasons
House of Carelessness: “Ignorance Begets Offence” Unprepared for the power of modern technology, they hold calls over speakerphone in crowded office spaces and forget to silence their phones during meetings. 38% of people consider loud conference calls rude
House of Over-Calling: “Fear My Call” No one is safe from the unending barrage of calls from the phone zealots of this house, not even the neighbor in the cubicle next door.
House of Non-Communication: “No, You Go Ahead” This house’s halls reverberate with the sound of disjointed conversations broken by the lag time from office phone to cell phone and back.
House of Obliviousness: “The World is Our Phone Booth” This house has the unique ability to, at the first ring of their phone, fall into a trance-like state where they become ignorant of anyone in their midst and speak with raised voice. The average person talks 3x louder on their mobile phone than in person
