Bone up on cell phone etiquette and do your part to make our society less annoying. Keep your volume down, don’t use speakerphone in public, and be self-aware.
We all know the situation: being subjected to someone else’s conversation while in a public space. Speaking on a cell phone makes some of us forget our manners! Celebrate National Cell Phone Courtesy Month by following these tips for cell phone etiquette.
When you are in a meeting, don’t check your phone constantly for texts and emails. Concentrate on the people you are with.
Set your cell phone to silent or vibrate when in a courtroom, theatre, or place of worship.
Don’t embarrass yourself; if you need to make a call which you know is going to get intense and emotional, save it for when you are somewhere private. The rest of the world doesn’t need to know about your relationship issues!
Finally, check your personal volume control. It’s all too easy to start yelling into your cellphone. Everyone in your vicinity will appreciate your good manners in avoiding “cell yell”!
