You can tell a lot about a person by what their cell phone looks like, whether it’s the background, their phone cover, or how they organize their applications. Personally, I focus on notifications.

I like to live my life as organized as possible. The more organized my day-to-day life is, the better I feel. I actually feel more at peace and less frazzled.

So when it comes to my phone, there is no notification that goes unread. I can’t stand the little red bubble that pops up on the corner of apps when you have a message. It’s like it’s yelling, “READ ME!” I have peace of mind knowing that I haven’t missed a single notification, and not to mention, it’s satisfying to see a well-kept iPhone with designated folders and a system in place.

Is that just me?

I don’t think so, but I found out that Michael Rock is one of those crazy people that doesn't seem to mind. When I saw his iPhone, I almost had a heart attack. Hundreds of text messages unread and alerts unchecked. On top of that, there is no rhyme or reason to the placement of his applications. How do you navigate that? It’s like the wild, wild west of iPhones.

I took to Facebook, like any normal person in 2020 would do, to see how other phone users treat their devices, and 22 out of 24 people said they are constantly deleting their notifications. Sue B. wrote, “Omg, A. It would make me crazy to leave them there.” Same, girl, same.

In conclusion, Michael is the crazy one here, not me.
