CELL PHONE ETIQUETTE

What did everyone do before the invention of the cell phone? Today all you see is people with their phone’s attached to their ear, just talking about everything. They do it in their cars, at the Dr. Office, the grocery store. They are everywhere like roaches that will not go away.

People seem to lose all common since  when their phone rings, they have to answer it no matter  what and carry a long winded conversation while at the check out. I have seen women so into their conversation that they could not even acknowledge the person that just held a door open for them. Then there is  the person that crossed the road in front of on coming traffic, then had the nerve to look back and shrug their shoulders as if to say, what was their problem? 

People need to remember to think of others when talking on their phones. Everyone does not want to hear about Uncle Fester’s operation when riding home or to work on the bus. The clerk at the check out wants you off  your phone, not so they can hold small talk with you. But they want your full attention, so that you do not try to say, they did not give you the correct change back.

So if any of this sounds like you, when you are talking on the phone, take a second too think about others around you and show some etiquette the next time you use your cell.
