No more lives PLEASE!

I sit down to a 1/2 NL game and there is this older guy with his phone on the rail and blue tooth in his ear, he keeps picking it up and checking it. Nothing out of the ordinary, except that it’s slowing the pace of play. Now he picks it up and seems like he is typing or something constantly, now every time it’s on him I have to remind him “12 to call” or “check or bet” 5 or 6 times a hand when the action is on him I’m reminding him to act. He gets into a couple big hands and he actually put the phone down, ok cool when it’s $80 to go and you’ve got a hand, good time to pay attention. Next hand it’s the reminders again as he jams away at the screen. What is so damn important? Is he emailing a customer? Texting his wife about something important? Putting a last minute bet in? Phones have become a staple now at the poker table and obviously everywhere in life. It’s not my job to tell someone to pay attention or act quicker, we aren’t allowed. Subtle hints maybe. Finally he gets in a huge hand and sets his phone face up on the rail and I see what has been taking all of OUR time, candy crush! Really dude your like 60 and candy crush is wasting all my time! I hate you candy crush, I can’t beat you, no one sends me lives and this dude is killing me by not paying attention. Please don’t send him any more lives,
Sincerely,
Me

    Wow. So he has real money down with real people and he retreats into a Facebook game? If he isn’t a bit dotty we’re all doomed.
