Many people can benefit from learning cell phone etiquette

The purpose of this article is to teach people the basics of cell phone etiquette.

Read this closely

  • Don't use your phone in inappropriate places (like hospital,library etc)
  • If you are checking out at a supermarket.. please don't be on the phone.
  • Don't argue on the phone in public.
  • Don't scream if you don't have service..they still won't be able to hear you.
  • Don't answer your cell during a job interview.
  • if you are on a date don't be on the phone... that is rude.
  • I think if you are in Church your cell should be off.
  • Don't text & drive... get a blue tooth.
  • In the public restroom you should not be on your cell phone.
  • Also playing music loudly off your phone can be very annoying.
  • If you are a cashier or a clerk wait until you go on break to make a call.
  • If you are having a conversation with a person don't answer your phone and make me wait for 15 minutes listening to you talk.
  • If you are at a funeral or a visitation service... turn off the phone please.

I guess I have a lot of pet peeves about cell phones, let me know what you think in the comment form below.

@Esther Strong ----- Thanks for the comment but I think you may be just a tab too forgiving, it is rude behavior period.

but that is just my opinion ;0)

It's so annoying when you are in mid conversation with someone and they take a call and chat on and on and on and just expect you to stand there and wait for them to finish. If its an urgent then fine, or if they answer the call and say to the person they will ring them back later, that's fine too. But otherwise ... ahh

Perhaps that are just not thinking about what they are doing when it happens - so as long as it doesn't happen too often I suppose I can forgive it.

I think you are 100% right! People seem to forget themselves and their manners when it comes to cellphones! Perfect hub!

Voted up! I am with you on your points made here. I am finding that, as a teacher, I have to set the rules the first day of class on the usage of cell phones. They do seem to take over if you do nothing.

That is sad that a doctor would do that to a patient, thanks for the comment!

Found this entertaining because I see so many people doing the above. It made me laugh when you said don't scream when you don't have service because it won't help. I guess I will add I found it annoying when a doctor kept answering his cell during an appointment and I barely was able to talk to him and the appointment was over.
