Man uses creative wallpapers to stop coworkers from snooping phone 😂

A man (M28) got creative when he noticed his female coworkers were constantly snooping through his phone whenever he wasn't around. After catching them three times, he decided to tackle the issue in a non-confrontational way by setting up insulting/offensive wallpapers that read "DON'T TOUCH MY PHONE A**HOLE/MUGGLE/WEIRDO" among others. The experiment apparently got to his coworkers who claimed he had offended them on a personal level. The office is now split on whether the man was justified or not. Some say he should've come to the ladies if he "really" had an issue, while others say ultimately no one gets to control what he uses as his wallpapers. However, the man is refusing to apologize. Read on for some interesting reactions to his unique solution.
