OMB!!! (that's computer talk for 'On my bog'.)

Does this mean you need to take your phone when you want to make a deposit? Is there an app for this? There seems to be an app for just about everything else. Imagin that on the 07.45 from Dartford to London Bridge station, or while at lunch in Pizza Express. Its bad enough as it is with loud numbskulls using their mobile at inappropriate times to tell the old man or the Mrs "I'm just having a tuna & mayo salad lunch." Or "I'm in the pet food aisle at Tesco". Now we're going to have to put up with some twerp phoning their rudy bog!
"Flush at hourly intervals with 'eua de Paris' to get rid of that giant turd I squeezed out this morning."

Of course the real worry will be when the bleeding bog rings you!
Ring ring, ring ring
