BRITAIN is facing an epidemic of people hitting themselves in the face with their phones while lying in bed each morning.
Doctors are urging people to do their early morning smartphone use while lying on their side, rather than dangling the device over their heads while still half asleep.
Smartphone user Mary Fisher, from Stevenage, said: “This morning I woke up, grabbed the phone and then dropped it right in my sodding eye. Hurt like a bastard.
“The worst part is I’m just checking my messages on Facebook and it’s usually someone I don’t know posting in some pathetic group I totally forgot I joined.”
“And I’m getting hit in the face to see that.”
Stephen Malley, from Peterborough, added: “I once dropped my iPad on my face. You can still see the mark on the bridge of my nose.”
