Our lives have forever changed since the cell phone and now the smartphone. You would be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn't have one. But while I love the convenience of these phones, they can also be quite annoying. For instance:
- When you are in a meeting, please get into the habit of putting your phone on silent or turning it off completely...are you really that important?
- If you are in a meeting and your phone goes off, please don't actually answer it...it's rude!
- If we are having a conversation, please don't keep looking at your phone. I'd like to feel like you were really interested in what I had to say.
- Why is your phone always in your hand?
- If we're in a group trying to answer a trivia question, please don't be the one to Google it. It's nice to try and use our brain every once in a while.
- Stop talking when you are in the store. No one wants to hear your conversation...no one!
- If you are talking while in the store or at the coffee shop, can you please end the call before it's your turn to order or pay. The cashier and everyone in line would greatly appreciate it.
- Why are you talking so loud?
- Take your phone off of speaker, again no one wants to hear your conversation.
- Unless you are in the middle of a negotiation or waiting for a call from a family member, put your phone away in a meeting.
- When you enter a meeting, take the bluetooth off of your ear...you don't look important, you look silly.
- News flash, talking with your phone to your mouth is still not "hands free". If you absolutely, positively have to talk on the phone while driving you need to invest in a bluetooth.
- The car behind you knows you are a distracted driver because they can see that you're on the phone, plus, you aren't paying attention to the traffic lights, you're driving way under the speed limit and you're weaving from side to side.
- Stop texting and reading your email while in a meeting. It's rude and the Presenter can see you.
- What's so important that you have to check your phone every ten seconds?
- Stop walking and looking at your phone. You are bumping into people and crossing the street on the red light.
- Correct your typos in a text and delete the disclaimer..."please excuse my typos".
- If you call and don't leave a message I assume you really didn't need to talk to me.
- Don't expect a call back if you don't leave a message.
- Not everything that happens throughout the day is a "selfie" moment.
- Don't get annoyed with someone who calls you on your lack of cell phone etiquette.
There is nothing more important than being present. While your cell phone is great for keeping in touch with clients, family and friends, there is such a thing as cell phone etiquette. You might think you look important by constantly checking your phone and taking calls, but to everyone else you just look rude...and that's not a good look.
- Does the Car You Drive Matter?
- FOMO is Real!
- Organize Your Day and Find More Time
- It's Okay Not to Be the Smartest One in the Room
- We Don't Have Anything in Common
