Have you experienced this?
The driver in front of you is going slower and slower on the highway as they talk on their phone
You are in the bookstore when the person walking beside you has their phone go off breaking the peace and silence.
You are sitting at a restaurant enjoying the company and the meal when the person next to you engages in cell yell.
I think that we have all been exposed to poor cell phone etiquette.
Are you attached to your cell phone?
I don’t particularly like mine. In fact, I keep it off most of the time, unless I need to call my husband or remind my kids of something if I am on the road. But it is getting harder and harder to do that.
Cell phones are an integral part of our technology-based world, and they won’t be disappearing anytime soon. However, if we all practiced a little more courtesy using our phone, then maybe cell phones would not seem so annoying and intrusive.
So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Cell Phone Courtesy Month:
Evaluate your own cell phone practices:
Make sure you keep it down. No one wants to hear you on the phone
Love the vibration. Use your phone’s vibration mode when in public
Try to excuse yourself when accepting a call in a group gathering
Focus on the task at hand, not your cell phone
And try to make the Person You are With Feel Like the Most Important Person you want to talk to
