Cell Phone Decorum

The ability to keep in touch with family, friends and business is important. But these days cell phones also allow you to access email, store data, take pictures and videos, listen to music and surf the net.

But using a little cell phone etiquette is important.
 
Keep conversations private. Keep in mind that other people don’t want to listen to your personal conversations. Stepping away for your private conversations will make everyone more comfortable.
 
Turn off your phone. Get in the habit of using the silent feature or turning off your phone before entering a gathering, meeting, auditorium or other public place.
 
Don’t multitask. Don’t talk on your phone while driving or crossing the street. Don’t risk your safety for a phone call.
 
Never have extended cell conversations in the company of others. Continuing to use the phone while nodding and signaling to the person in front of you is bad-mannered. It keeps you from being fully present with them.

    I completely agree. Especially number 2. When I’m meeting with someone, they are the most important person to me at that time. And I silence my phone to make that completely clear.

  2. Thanks Juli. You know things have gone too far when churches have to post signs to turn off cell phones (as at my church)! So much for quiet reflection.
