Are you being rude talking on the phone

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives of Treasure Valley
Here's something i have been thinking about , since i  dropped my cell phone in a cup of coffee and had  to wait for a replacement phone from the Insurance Co I have noticed how ,  firstly we have taken to our phones like babies to a pacifier , i suspect a great number calls made by the general public are dialed  because there is  nothing  better to do  and secondly how rude to be next in line at almost anyplace and hear  intimate details about someone's life being broadcast  out loud for all to hear ! Anyone else feel the same , how about some discretion and good manners .

How about the folks that expect cashiers to use sign language while they talk on their precious cell phones?  Or the ones who talk and make people wait in line?  Or people who actually answer mobile phones in a movie theater?  What I would like to see is adults using what used to be common manners.  Now that would be role modeling for our kids.

My wife lost her phone a week ago.  It sure quite for those few days.  Sometimes I wish we only had land based phones.

I am convinced that a lot of people talk loud on their phones just to sound important to everyone. It is really obnoxious. Thanks for the good post!

Everyone around me and clients know that when I am with someone I do not answer my cellphone and will step outside if I am in a store to pick up an important call. Ultiimately I believe that I get more accomplished if I can finish one task prior to picking up the phone.
