Cartoon: A 1920s prediction of the horror and inconvenience that would occur if anyone ever invented a pocket telephone

The caption on the bottom reads:
The latest modern horror in the way of inventions is supposed to be the pocket telephone. We can imagine the moments this instruments will choose for action!
by W. K. Haseiden 
Here's Robert Heinlein in 1948:

"How come," he asked as he came abreast, "they had to search for you?"

"Left my pocketphone in my other suit," Coburn returned briefly. "Did it on purpose - I wanted a little peace and quiet. No luck."
