It is poor technical etiquette to take other people's phone chargers



Technology turns people into strange creatures – and not the Instagram filter form. It gives birth to rough behavior, like texting on the toilet, or tempting you to sweep through someone's entire camera roll when they show you just a image.

As there is no official manual for technical etiquette and everyone has their own opinions, we are launching an animated series documenting our personal technical peeves. Will it finally end a word, with no punctuation "hello" messages? Or prevent your grandmother from sending her entire e-mail in the subject line? Perhaps. Or maybe not.

Our new series Tech Etiquette is about calling people the strange, quirky and sometimes annoying things that people do with technology. These personal confessions must be the unofficial guide to technical etiquette that we all need.

Nothing inspired this series more than working in an open office where your phone charger can find literally anyone within easy reach.

The first section is about these lawless beings.

Let us know in the comments: what are some of your biggest tech peeves?
