I just saw someone standing dead still in a busy square using his phone as a mirror, lovingly touching up his hair. Was gonna take a photo but I thought he might notice, although probably not.

Maybe mirrors will join the long list of things made obsolete by the device in our pockets... dictaphones, tomtoms, watches, porn videos er... what happens if one day we all have to abandon our phones and we've totally lost the art of making other types of porn?

@catalog FYI you have to tip for this as well, if you see a girl doing something sexy you have to go over and put a couple of dollar bills in her hand
On the other hand, if she's really minging can you go up to her and demand compensation for your distress?

I will once again tell the horrendous story of booking a strip club in Hackney to put on a club night and how I went there to speak to the manager on a Tuesday lunchtime, turned out that even at that time there were a few bored suits watching a bored woman listlessly pull off her clothes, and the manager said to me "Sorry you had to see that, we're trying to get rid of her".

When I see the sign in a supermarket saying SELF CHECKOUT, I always imagine there's just a big floor-length mirror.

Oof. I hope the poor woman didn't hear.

People checking themselves out in a car window before realising someone's inside.
Got a friend whose flat is in a somewhat unusual position in that due to being built on a hill some parts of it are cellar level and some street level. Upshot is her bedroom looks right out on to a street - albeit a side-street - in central Lisbon. Luckily the window is deceptively reflective, it's all but impossible to see in from the street - but the other side of that is that it's quite common if you're sat in her bedroom to see people who think they are totally alone stare right into the window and use it as a full body mirror. It's really quite odd to watch someone a couple of metres from you certain they are totally unseen make lengthy minor adjustments to their appearance - in fact it's really disconcerting in several ways cos they are really close to you and it is hard to convince yourself they can't see you (she's used to it of course but I'm not), and that's before you get to the false intimacy of seeing them act as though they are alone, pushing their hair around and adopting sexy poses.

He was dropping the hints quite heavily, think he'd "accidentally" left the tannoy on, but my suspicions were really aroused when it was accidentally broadcast in three different Slavic languages.
Edit; to be clear, that last bit is a joke of course, but the bit about him saying they wanted to get rid of her is totally, one hundred percent true...
