Every Awkward Situation Your Phone Gets You Out Of

When a friend texts you "SOS," you know exactly what to do: Drop everything and rescue his or her ass.

Phones allow us to escape painfully awkward situations. When that terrible blind date goes south, drop a pin on your location and send it STAT to your best friends. When your drunk aunt tries hooking you up with your fourth cousin once removed, just pop on those headphones, binge-watch your favorite nature series and zone the f*ck out.

Alas, the days of just dialing are long gone. Phones are so much more than they appear. They are lifelines to sanity.

"Generation whY" is back for its sixth season to distract you from the bad date you're on. Worry not, there are more fish in the sea of swipe rights.
