I'm sure it's higher than 1 in 8. People fib on surveys.

But sure, I've done it. At the very least to look occupied when I would feel awkward if I wasn't; not necessarily to avoid conversation.

You don't pretend like you're talking, you pretend like you're engrossed in some uber-important email writing that cannot be interrupted lest you want the earth to implode upon itself and the continuity of time to cease and a million blackholes to suck the universe into an alternate reality.

Pssht. Rookie. :p
