1.
Upon accidentally dropping a small fradgile item such as a cell phone, Ipod, camera, etc.. a last ditch effort is made to soften the obejects impact by trying to "catch" the item with your foot, much like a stall in hacky-sack. Most of the time this will not prevent the item from hitting the ground, but it will greatly lessen the impact compared to a direct drop on a hard surface, thus saving the fradgile item from severe damage such as a cracked screen, broken hinge etc..
Brent: "Dammit! That is the second time today I've dropped my new phone!"

Ed: "Hey well that was still a nice footsave."
