windows can be opened, maybe it's time to test the shock resistance of your phone?
Is your phone waterproof? Let's go to the kitchen and find out.
What part of the name "mobile phone" don't you understand?

1) Hide the mobile near the person's desk
2) Wait for the person to come back
3) Start calling their mobile
4) Watch them go crazy because of their own ringtone

The irony of the situation makes it more entertaining.

Leave it in the glove compartment (more on that later) of your car just for emergencies.

Why the "F" do they call it the "Glove Compartment"!?

When was the last time you stored gloves in that compartment?

Oops! I forgot I live in a part of Planet Earth where you only need gloves when working with trees or branches that have been blown off by hurricanes!

As opposed to gloves being worn by narcissists in Hollywood where it's never cold and they don't need the gloves, Ha Ha!

Any unattended phone that rings more than three times may be dropped into a large glass of water.

I was working with somebody one day when this raucus buzzing started up next door. We peeked over the cube wall and it was a cell phone vibrating on a glass shelf, very noisy. A few minutes later, it goes again. Again few minutes later, but this time it rattled itself off the shelf and fell into the trash can. Justice at last!

I just realized that the thing has in english the same odd name as in german. Here its called Handschuhfach and I allways wondered. Thats a literal translation of Glove Compartment. And here people use to wear gloves in winter. Nevertheless its generally perceived as a strange and probably outdated name for the thing. Even for germans, who are used to compound and long words, its definitely sounds odd: Hand-Schuh-Fach.
So far I haven't found out, if the Glove Department was invented in Germany and later literally translated in UK/US, vice versa or literally translated to both idioms. AFAIK Germany, France, the UK/US played a mayor role in the early days of automobiles.

In the past people used to wear riding gloves when driving their cars as standard.
This probably was in part because cars were mostly driven by professional drivers and the gloves were part of their uniform, which was a leftover from the uniforms worn by coachdrivers of the past which were similar to the uniforms of liveried servants who in English society (and I guess in German as well) still wear gloves by convention in all functions.

Having a hard (possibly rough) wood steering wheel and no powersteering, blisters would likely have rapidly have developed when not protecting the hands, making the soft leather gloves a necessity rather than luxury.
