    Cell phones are very annoying at times. Do you agree?

    I was in a pub the other day and a large percentage of the men were walking around looking at their cell phone screens and not paying attention to the people who were right in front of them. I found this to be quite distasteful and would of been happy if the pub owner banned mobile phones (or made cell phone free areas) because what is the point of meeting people for fun and drinks if you don't even look at them and prefer to look at a tiny screen on a cell phone?

    I agree you with you, and more painful when you go out with a friend to change. Suddenly, you find yourself an audience for his business conversations. And he has no time form you.
    What a pity?

    I agree with you. Cell phones are reducing social interactions in public places. More and more, when I am out in restaurants I am disrupted by cell phones ringing and one sided conversations. We are losing our ability to socially communicate with one another.

    Yes, every single time that it rings or chimes, my solititude or privacy is being invaded..........every single time. 

    It was also this way, in the day of rotary dial.     

    The phone is made to call out................yet, if we followed this, there would be no incoming calls.

    Make the call, an important one............not a meaningless one.

    Let the call say............I need you...............

    not, what are you doing now, at this moment!

    Yes, it is terrible. It really is the worst when you are with a friend and you are in the middle of a conversation yet their phone rings and they still pick it up. I understand sometimes calls can be important, but everyone should know when to not pick up the phone.

    I abhor them ringing or being answered in the movie theater. I cannot stand it when people do not have the social grace to put them on vibrate or turn them off when in meetings. And....in a nice, quiet, sit down restaurant? Really? Is it necessary?? Leave it in the car for the love of mike.
