Fair Warning: This has been on my mind for a long time, and it’s not meant to demean or offend anyone. If you easily take offense to this topic, don’t read my rant. Otherwise, continue on…
Personal rant:
While in the business world, you have to talk on the phone twenty-four seven. I covered some of this in an earlier posting. Unfortunately, there are some that have no mind for courtesy in certain establishments.


Of all people, I should be heeding my own advice. Yet sometimes, I forget and with my voice carrying, you could probably hear some low-voiced Chinese guy bellowing out a stream of who-knows-what to the other end of the cell phone. Yet, I ALWAYS put my phone on vibrate when I enter an eating establishment or other places that require quiet.
Having been around cellular phones enough (I used to average about twenty two hundred minutes a month) I could tell what type of phone by the ring. What makes me even more insane is when someone has their phone blaring while I’m trying to eat and they start talking to their boyfriend, mother, friend, girlfriend, or whomever as loudly as possible as if trying to broadcast to the rest of the world, “HERE’S MY LIFE AND IF YOU DON’T WANT TO LISTEN, TOUGH.”
Come on. How difficult is it to at least have a little bit of sense to put it on vibrate in certain situations. Maybe speak with a quieter tone of voice would help also, unless you really want everyone to know that “so-and-so knocked up your daughter” or whatever.
Again, it’s your life and your phone. Do with it what you wish. I just find it really annoying that people can’t respect other people in a public environment.
End rant.
